Take Steven Seagal, add an ex-wrestler, shove them in a prison, and you have Maximum Conviction, a fairly run of the mill guns and guys action film which may not be perfect, but it does have moments that stand out. The plot sees Seagal and Austin as black ops security officers, currently in charge of decommissioning a prison. Before that, they have to babysit two female prisoners, with mysterious backgrounds. The waste truck is owned by Trojan Waste, with a picture of a wooden horse slapped across the side. No prizes for guessing the inevitable outcome. Still, referencing Greek literature is a step up for straight-to-dvd action movies.

Austin and Seagal are on fine form, never having to emote »
