Plot Summary

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.

Did You Know?

Trivia Sylvester Stallone had this to say on filming the shower scene with Sharon Stone: "OK. Let it be known, I didn't want to do this scene because Sharon was not cooperating. We get to the set and she decides not to take her robe off. The director asks only a few of the crew to remain, and she still won't take it off. I promised her I wouldn't take any liberties, so what's the problem? She said, 'I'm just sick of nudity.' I asked her if she could get sick of it on someone else's film. She was having none of it, so I went down to my trailer, brought back a bottle of Black Death vodka that was given to me by Michael Douglas and after half-a-dozen shots we were wet and wild."

Goofs The scene in which Ray sets a trap in his high rise balcony hotel room overlooking the water was spectacular, but from a construction or physics perspective it was preposterous. No amount of explosives placed on the surface of the floor, walls and ceiling could have caused the balcony to break off cleanly as depicted. Ray would have had to have hired crews to use heavy equipment to drill into the concrete and then place explosives inside the concrete. Obviously the hotel would not have cooperated with Ray's remodeling. See more »

Quotes Tomas Leon: Hey, you!
[Ray looks around]
Tomas Leon: Yeah, I'm talking to you. You think you know me? I asked you a question. You think you know me? 'Cause the way you're looking at me, we must be old friends. Where did we meet?
Ray Quick: Nowhere.
Tomas Leon: [grabs Ray] Nowhere. You like the bitch? Huh?
[Ray starts to walks away]
Tomas Leon: [grabs Ray again] Maybe you like me.
Ray Quick: No, I don't like you.
Tomas Leon: Then don't stare so hard. Somebody could...
[pulls out switchblade]
Tomas Leon: ...put something in your eye.
