When a serial killer turns his attention on the lead detective he is asked to check into a clinic treating law enforcement officials who cant face their jobs. As the patients begin being murdered they restart doing what they do best.

Ray Quick is a bomb expert who worked for the CIA along with a guy named Ned Trent, who's extremely demented. When they have a falling out, Ray becomes a freelancer who lives off the grid. A woman named May Munro contacts and wants him to kill the three men who killed her family years ago, who work for the Leon crime family. Ray does it and after killing the first one, the Leons need to find the one who did it and it turns out Ned is now working for them and they task him with finding the bomber. The Leons get him to work with the police and he looks for the bomber. In the meantime Ray, while working on getting the others, can't help but follow May wherever she goes. Written by
Sylvester Stallone demanded for some of James Woods's scenes to be cut out of the movie and for some of his scenes to be re-shot in order for Stallone to have more screen time. The reason for that was because Stallone was worried that Woods would "steal" the movie away because he was a better actor then him. Stallone also cut out some Rutger Hauer's scenes from Nighthawks (1981) for same reasons. See more »
When Ray calls Ned at the police station, he times the call so that he wouldn't be 'traced' and clears it after precisely 58 seconds. The call would have been via digital exchange and the number would have been displayed instantly as it is a feature provided for billing purposes. Previous electro mechanical (strowger) exchanges required time for the call to be manually traced through selector banks and distribution frames, often through several different buildings miles apart and always referring to wiring records. The time taken varied enormously and depended upon the skill and knowledge of the engineers. Strowger exchanges are now obsolete and would have been highly unlikely to be operating in the area of Florida where the movie is set. Hollywood even today has not moved on from this antiquated and outdated plot device. See more »
Although I'm not really a Sly-fan I found this movie highly entertaining and it made me laugh quite a lot. I totally agree with the comment of bensonl who, in my opinion understands the value of entertainment. Right you are, mate! I think it's silly to look for a good plot (is there one?) in an action flick like this. Anyway, who cares? If you're in for a plot go see 'Usual Suspects', I'd say.
By the way, if you're being led by all the negative comments, you'll miss the chance of (yet again) seeing Sharon without clothes.....mmmm! 8 out of 10 to push up the score.
