This is one of those first few movies which represent Seagal's best. The story moves by quickly, the action never stops, and the quality is excellent.
Seagal's bombastic aikido style is a sure show-stopper. The action is so captivating that it almost renders the story unnecessary. The story consists of Seagal searching out the murderer of a friend. There are other elements to the plot, but that is the gist. It would do no good to attempt to detail the plot however, as the story is lost in a flurry of fists and knees.
If you are a fan of Seagal's bone-crunching, show-stopping, hard-hitting martial arts style, you will simply love this one.
Although this is quite pretentious and philosophically preachy, this has to be one of my absolute favorites of his older movies.
I love it!
