Premiered on Cable TV (Spike). My personal favorite Seagal direct to video movie. "The Keeper" along with "A Dangerous Man" helped to revive Seagal's career.
10. Urban Justice (2007 Video)

Seagal plays a man with a dark and violent past, who seeks revenge for the murder of his son.
Seagal kicks a lot of arse in this one!

Above average Seagal. Could have been in theaters if not for the constant voice dubbing. But the voice actor comes close & sounds very much like Seagal! The action is extreme and intense. Hard hitting action scenes in ADM!
13. Driven to Kill (2009 Video)

Votes: 175,555 | Gross: $26.59M
Small role for Seagal. Best part of the movie is THE SWORD FIGHT at the end between Seagal & Trejo. Interesting to see Seagal play the villain for once! Second movie that Seagal died in.
16. Pistol Whipped (2008 Video)
R | 100 min | Action, Crime, Drama

PG-13 Seagal. Did poorly at the box office :-/ Seagal is Rated R though. Can't be PG-13. Ja Rule!!! Chestnut & Seagal reunion!!
18. Into the Sun (2005)
R | 97 min | Action, Adventure, Thriller
When a government official is killed, an American operative with experience in the Yakuza culture is brought in to investigate.
Seagal vs. The Yakuza. Awesome filmography that actually looks like a theatrical release (it was in Japan). Don't be fooled by the skewed cover artwork. Seagal uses a sword in this film (no guns). Features Steven Seagal singing songs during the end credits ("Don't You Cry" & "Girl It's Alright").
19. Steven Seagal: Lawman (2009– )
30 min | Reality-TV
A reality series that follows action star Steven Seagal's adventures as a fully-commissioned deputy with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office in Louisiana.

R | 96 min | Action, Adventure, Crime

Steven Seagal teams up with Byronn Mann once again!! Absolution had a limited U.S. theatrical release. Mann did most of the hand-to-hand fight scenes. Seagal mostly did the gun play. Great buddy action movie! Cool to see Seagal and Mann again like in "Belly of the Beast"
21. The Patriot (1998)
R | 90 min | Action, Thriller
A respected doctor must race against time to find a cure for a lethal virus, unleashed by a paramilitary militia leader.
Not the typical Seagal DTV actioner. The Patriot is more drama than action, but it's still a decent effort . Steven Seagal's very first Direct-to-Video release!!!

R | 133 min | Action, Adventure, Thriller

Solid prequel in the Alexander Trilogy for Seagal. Victor Webster (The Scorpion King 3) did some good fight scenes. In typical recent DTV fashion - Seagal teamed up again. This time Seagal & Webster took on the bad guys. Tzi Ma (Rush Hour) played the main villain Mr. Chen.
25. Born to Raise Hell (2010)
R | 98 min | Action, Crime, Thriller
A hard core Interpol Agent is assigned to an Eastern European task force to target gun trafficking and dope running throughout the Balkans. While investigating a Russian gun dealer, his ... See full summary »

R | 91 min | Action

28. End of a Gun (2016)
R | 87 min | Action, Crime, Thriller

Seagal's BEST movie of 2016. Steven Seagal has maximum screen time and he is the star! (Not a cameo like the rest of his 2016 movies). Features the lovely Jade Ewen. Directed by Keoni Waxman who helmed such Seagal hits as "The Keeper", "A Dangerous Man", "Maximum Conviction" & "Absolution".

30. Today You Die (2005 Video)
R | 90 min | Action, Crime, Thriller
A former thief who is trying to go straight seeks vengeance on those who framed him.
Enjoyed the car chase scene in the beginning regardless of obvious stock footage. Also, TYD has cool cameos from Chloe Moretz & Robert Miano. Treach from Naughty By Nature is Seagal's buddy. TYD will remind you of "Exit Wounds" & "Half Past Dead" where Seagal teamed up with a rapper to kick some ass!!! Mari Morrow & Sarah Buxton are two hot chicks!!

33. Kill Switch (2008 Video)
R | 96 min | Action, Crime, Drama
A troubled detective travels to Memphis in order to track down a pair of serial killers.
Made its premier on Cable TV (Spike). KS is an okay Seagal movie. Stunt double at Mojo Blues was annoying. Some of the worst film editing. Action scenes are repeated/ looped and shown from alternate angles/ POV. Cool cameo by Isaac Hayes though. Seagal plays guitar in the band at Mojo Blues. Celine & Frankie Miller are hot babes!
34. Submerged (2005 Video)
R | 96 min | Action, Thriller
Chris Kody, the world's best mercenary, is freed from prison -- but there's a catch. Kody must use his lethal weapons and fighting skills to stop a group of terrorists who have taken over a nuclear sub.
Seagal is in his WORST SHAPE EVER in Submerged. But still Submerged is a decent Action B movie (worth a watch).

41. Shadow Man (2006 Video)

42. Gutshot Straight (2014)

Very brief appearance by Sensei Seagal.
43. The Onion Movie (2008)
Not Rated | 80 min | Comedy
Satirical interpretations of world events and curious human behavior.
Extremely brief cameo as "Cockpuncher" which should be made into a full length film like Machete & Hobo With A Shotgun.
44. The Perfect Weapon (2016)
88 min | Action, Drama, Sci-Fi
In the not so distant future, society is controlled by the powerful State and a dictator known as the Director. Condor works as a hitman for the State, but a reunion with someone he thought... See full summary »

R | 90 min | Action, Adventure
Harmon is a CIA/DEA enforcer investigating Arab terrorists captured in Mexico. With his team--seductive FBI agent Zara and spy-drone pilot Sharp--he flies to Istanbul and uncovers a brutal ... See full summary »
What a difference a year makes! Absolution was decent. But "Contract to Kill" was subpar to say the least. Needed more action and less talking!! Too much talk and too little action. Had high hopes for CTK after I enjoyed "End of a Gun". Very disappointed with the lack of action. Russell Wong co-starred in the movie, but still. CTK lacked Seagal Action!! Can't recommend Contract to Kill at all. I almost fell asleep! CTK made me feel drowsy/ sleepy.
46. Sniper: Special Ops (2016)
R | 84 min | Action, Drama, War
A Special Ops Military Force, led by Sergeant Vic Mosby (Tim Abell) with an expert sniper Sergeant Jake Chandler (Steven Seagal) as "Over Watch" during a special mission are sent to a ... See full summary »
Glorified cameo appearance by Steven Seagal. Don't be fooled by the cover artwork! Very dishonest and shady marketing (acting as if Seagal was the major star when he had very minimal screen time). Also, the "Van Dam" might confuse those who aren't familar with Rob Van Dam with Jean-Claude Van Dame (JCVD).
47. Cartels (2016)
R | 95 min | Action, Crime, Mystery
An elite team of DEA agents are assigned to protect a dangerous drug lord and take refuge in a luxury hotel while they await extraction. They soon find themselves at the center of an ambush... See full summary »
Seagal makes brief appearances throughout the movie. All he did was one short "action" scene w/ guns. Then for the rest of the time Seagal sits down and interviews Luke Goss. Kill Sal ranks with the likes of Seagal's ALL TIME LOW movies. 2016 was a very tough/ rough year as a Seagal fan. 2016 was when Seagal gave a very poor effort. It is Quality, not quantity as far as action movies go. Van Damme & Lundgren still try!!
48. Black Dawn (2005 Video)
R | 96 min | Action
Jonathan Cold returns, this time he goes undercover to stop a group of terrorists before they bomb Los Angeles.
WORST STUNT DOUBLE IN FILM HISTORY!!! Words can't describe the low quality of "Black Dawn". Third worst Seagal movie ever!!!
49. Attack Force (2006 Video)
R | 95 min | Action, Thriller
Marshall Lawson loses his strike-team in a cold-blooded and seemingly random attack. After this he takes it upon himself to investigate the suspicious circumstances of the brutal killings. ... See full summary »
Excessive voice dubbing & post production editing by the studio RUINED what could have been a COOL movie. Seagal was supposed to fight Aliens, but they changed it to humans who are on some kind of experimental military drug. This is THE WORST Seagal movie as far as the voice dubbing goes. 2nd worst Seagal.
50. The Foreigner (2003)
R | 96 min | Action, Thriller
A freelance agent must transport a package for a mysterious employer, leading him into a web of betrayal and deceit.
The absolute Worst Seagal movie. Everytime I attempt to watch this, I shut it off. I can't make it to the end of The Foreigner because it is so BORING!!! The Foreigner = the cure for insomnia!! It will put you to sleep! Zzz This was Seagal's third DTV release.
