A high-strung yet winning crime comedy, Triggermen features an appealing cast in the story of two British con artists mistaken for a pair of seasoned assassins. Adrian Dunbar and Neil Morrissey play displaced, small-time thieves rotting away in Chicago and desperate to get home to the U.K. Morrissey's character has a solution: He takes a briefcase full of cash left in a hotel lobby for a pair of laidback, Yankee killers (Donnie Wahlberg, Michael Rapaport) hired through a second party to murder a Windy City crime boss (Pete Postlethwaite). The client (Louis Di Bianco) pressures the Brits to get the job done, while the real hitmen figure out they've been supplanted. It all makes for an enjoyable (and violent) lark, but an interesting angle finds Wahlberg's soft-spoken criminal anxious to get out of his trade (he falls for Postlethwaite's gorgeous daughter, played by Claire Forlani) while Morrissey becomes increasingly convincing as a gangster. --Tom Keogh ...

John McWhirter is a hard-drinking reporter whose award-winning career is slipping away. But he's just been handed the story of a lifetime and his editor wants the scoop. A group of radicals want McWhirter to protect a beautiful fugitive who is actually a Palestinian operative on the run from the FBI and an assassin. As the pulse-pounding action builds to an astonishing climax, McWhirter must fight for both the woman he loves and the story of a lifetime--and hope he doesn't have to choose between them. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars THE TERMINATOR MEETS FIRESTARTER
SPECIMEN is a molding of two other movies: "Firestarter" and "The Terminator." They even have the two aliens appear in the buff, cute little buns and all. Mark Paul Gosselaar plays Mike, a young man who has the ability to start fires; he is the spawn of an alien who impregnated his mother, and the aliens have sent a terminator type guy (played with muscular aloof by Douglas O'Keefe) to bring him back or destroy him (why, they never say). In steps another alien, Andrew Jackson, who we find out has closer ties to Mike.
Mike teams up with a teacher and the local sheriff to understand what's going on; the sheriff (played dead pan by David Kerman) believes the story about Mike's birth, but Mike doesn't. How else can he explain his powers, though?
Low budget and corny, SPECIMEN nevertheless works because there's a modicum of sincerity to its thin storyline. The special effects are chintzy, but the locale is beautiful.

3-0 out of 5 stars Specimen - A movie so bad it is good
I would almost consider the movie "Specimen" a high class "B" movie in the SciFi genre. If you liked the movie "Firestarter" with Drew Barrymore in the '80's, you may like this movie.

Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Saved By the Bell) actually does a decent job in his role as Mike Hillary. In this, what I consider to be, a low buget film.

Think of "specimen" as an updated version of the movie "Firestarter." Specimen has more of an alien feel to it, on a low budget scale. I am not into "B" type movies. However I can say I liked this movie. A movie so bad it's good.

Recomended for the SciFi or "B" movie fan

4-0 out of 5 stars Mark-Paul Gosselaar--great!
I liked this movie. The story is intriguing. The only problem I had with this movie was with some of the writing--it was a little bit stilted in some places. The character of "Eleven" was just a little bit lame. I thought Mark-Paul Gosselaar was great. He made the character (Mike) believable and sympathetic and made the whole movie watchable and enjoyable. I liked that this movie wasn't just a bunch of scenes jumbled together for effect, but told a slowly unfolding story as it went along.

4-0 out of 5 stars The keyword is: BATHTUB
The singular point of watching this is the considerably lovely footage of MarkPaul Gosselaar, soaking wet, in the bathtub, in his underpants. Otherwise, it's a paperweight.

1-0 out of 5 stars I rather watch a Tae Bo informercial.
I saw Specimen about 3 years ago on the SCI FI Channel and for the life of me not one memorable scene stands out. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars 3 1/2
This film was Actually pretty good!!! Nice production for a "direct to home video" release! I bought it because "Catherine Mary Stewart" was in it only...but it turned out to be a fairly decent thriller! A little predictable, but well acted.

three and a half stars out of five...

4-0 out of 5 stars a gripping psychological thriller
this was a fairly gripping psychological thriller with decent plot twists and stylish direction.I could not figure out who was the killer at the end so I give it high marks for that alone. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Clumsy "Airport" wannabe...
I'm trying to think of what to say about this one and I just can't think of where to start. The plot is recycled bits of every other plane movie since "Airport" and the characters are stereotypical and politically correct. There isn't any action, it isn't scary, there's no real suspense, it's just overall a really lame movie.

1-0 out of 5 stars Ouch!
Well, the movie starts at the Molokai airport (yeah, the island exactly 50 nautical miles from Honolulu International). Couple of problems, though - the concourse shots had to be taken at Honolulu (Molokai is a pleasant "little" airport), and it was a 1-hour flight from Molokai to Honolulu in a 737. Hmmm, that works out to 50 knots, not too fast for a 737! And from there, the entire movie went downhill. Only redeeming grace was that the ineptness was initially quite humorous, but by a half hour into the movie (and I guess the flight) even the humor aspect failed. Buh-Bye.

2-0 out of 5 stars What happened?
I must say that I thought this movie would be good considering that Penelope Ann Miller and Daniel Baldwin were in it. Sadly, that was not the case. It was hard to get into at first, but the start of it shows us how the passengers start to get sick. An obnoxious passenger spawns instant hatred of everyone including the audience, a little girl demonstrates the innocence of youth, add a conveneint doctor and yes, a passenger who is also a pilot and you already have an unbelievable plot. They are on their way to Honolulu, when the virus carrier dies with several other passengers already showing signs of sickness. Somehow, Daniel Baldwin intercepts the distress calls and takes over the flight plan. Another mystifying occurence is how Penelope Miller gets called in. Apparently she works for the CDC in California, but she doesn't contact the CDC headquarters,which is in Atlanta, once during the the course of the movie. She allows Daniel to boss her around, yell, and ultimately act like he is the president and not once did she try to call her headquarters to make sure everything was in line. People are dropping like flies on the plane, Daniel is trying to cover up the infection by directing the demise of the passengers, and Penelope decides to buck him by helping them land. Horrible acting, badly delivered lines, and laughable visual effects is what makes this the B of B movies. The only reason I gave it 2 Stars is that the plot did have potential. Unfortunately someone dropped the ball when they edited it. My recommendation, don't even waste your time or money on this film. ... Read more

Mark Paul Goesselaar fans won't be disappointed with Specimen. They're probably too young to remember Firestarter or The Terminator so they won't recognize where most of the plot came from. Mike (played by Goesselaar, who was the blonde kid on the original TV show "Saved by the Bell") starts fires with his mind and is probably a spawn from an alien species.He is tracked down by Eleven, abounty-hunter/racial-cleanser/clean-up-janitor--who knows?--but Eleven really wants to destroy Mike.Most of this chase takes place in the largest community center in the free world. For all its plot and scene pilfering, there's an attempt at originality (Mike has to sleep in the bathtub to keep from burning down the house), but most of the time, this film can barely produce a spark.--Keith Simanton ...
