May Munro is a woman obsessed with getting revenge on the people who murdered her parents when she was still a girl. She hires Ray Quick, a retired explosives expert to kill her parent’s killers. When Ned Trent, embittered ex-partner of Quick’s is assigned to protect one of Quick’s potential victims, a deadly game of cat and mouse ensues.
Two supposedly sexy box-office superstars were featured in this body-conscious, ‘guilty pleasure’ thriller-tale of murder and revenge against the underworld set against the neon backdrop of Miami. It won two Razzie awards (Worst Actress – Sharon Stone, Worst Screen Couple – Stone and Stallone) from its five Razzie nominations, including Worst Actor, Worst Supporting Actor (Rod Steiger) and Worst Picture.
The two ultra-buffed stars were:
May Munro/Adrian Hastings (Sharon Stone), a femme fatale
Ray Quick (Sylvester Stallone), a former CIA explosives expert and free-lance hit man
May hired Ray to avenge the murder of her parents.
They appeared in a number of sex scenes, including a lengthy, exhibitionist shower scene that featured their taut and toned bodies – his biceps and pectorals and her breasts. The scene began in a Fontainebleu Hotel bedroom where they kissed – he let her hair down, and told the alluring female that she had a “beautiful face.” To the tune of bluesy jazz music, they undressed and caressed each other and made love on the bed – the scene then segued into the shower where they kissed under the steamy showerhead. They sank to the shower floor where they stretched out and made love.
Their dialogue was unintentionally funny and unsexy, as, for instance, this double-entendre line as she soaped up his chest from behind and then came around to his front to kiss him. She noted that she had faked her own death, so that she could witness the demise of ruthless criminal Tomas Leon (Eric Roberts). She also sexily stated that ‘specialist’ Ray only built bombs focused on their target:
“I had to be there when he died. I needed to see it. Anyway, I knew you’d pick the safest way for everybody. I studied your style. I knew you always focused your detonations. So I knew that if I was facing Tomas, right in front of him, like this. A little bit closer, like this, I know I feel safe.”
