John and Max set out to hunt Screwface down, only to discover that Screwface has gone back to Jamaica.

The back cover of the DVD release features a screen capture from the James Bond movie Licence to Kill (1989), featuring a semi performing a wheelie through the burning remains of a second semi. Obviously this scene is not in the movie, and it is made even more odd by the fact that this movie is a 20th Century Fox release while Licence to Kill is an MGM release. See more »

You can split Segal films into 2 categories, the early stuff (Hard To Kill, Nico) and the later stuff (Fire Down Below, Today You Die). The latter group doesn't usually even get to the cinema but the former has some real action gems. Marked for death is one of them.
This film has loads of martial arts, Yardies, drugs, black magic, Drive by shootings, people dressed like Aswad, and the big black guy from platoon who escapes from the shootout at the end by getting rotated back to America. One of the things that ruins Segal films is having too much shooting and not enough fighting, But the action is pitched just right here, with still enough shooting thrown in to spice it up. The guys playing the Yardies are fantastic and the dialogue is second to none, in fact for those IDM fans out there Luke Vibert sampled some in 'screwface'. Other than Segal and the platoon guy the only person I recognised was Danny Trejo, Hollywoods default Mexican criminal. This is an action classic folks, watch it or Screwface will give you a thousand deaths worse than mine.
