Stallone is Ray Quick, a bomb-disposal expert with a difference: it's people he disposes of. Not indiscriminately, mind you. He can 'control his explosions, shape his charges' - which must be why May Munro (Stone) decides he's just the man to execute her revenge on half a dozen Cuban sleazeballs (played by the likes of Roberts and Steiger). Cast as a security expert hired by the sleazeballs, Woods clearly knows trash when he's in it: conjuring up a spellbinding sequence out of a gram of Semtex and a ballpoint pen, or hilariously scandalising a funeral congregation, he has a bite and gusto at odds with the vacuity of almost everything else going on around him.
