Forrest Taft is an environmental agent who works for the Aegis Oil Company in Alaska. Aegis Oil's corrupt CEO, Michael Jennings, is the kind of person who doesn't care whether or not oil spills into the ocean or onto the land, just as long as it's making money for him. He even makes commercials that make him look like he cares about the environment. Jennings is almost finished with building his new state-of-the art oil rig: AEGIS-1. The problem is that if he doesn't finish building the rig in thirteen days, the land rights will be returned to the Eskimos and the Alaskan government. When Jennings finds out that Taft's best friend Hugh Palmer has a computer disk that contains information about defective equipment on AEGIS-1, he sends out his goons to murder Palmer. When Taft tries to interfere, Jennings tries to kill Taft. But an Eskimo woman named Masu, who introduces Taft to her father Silook, the chief of her tribe, rescues Taft. With Masu's help, Taft begins a trek through the ... Written by

I can't understand why people are so against this movie.If Seagal wants to spread a message about the environment then let him;as long as he accompanies it with as much thrilling action as this movie possesses.The final half hour when Seagal punches,kicks.shoots,slices and dices anyone foolish enough to stand in his way as he destroys the huge complex that is Aegis Oil's headquarters is why movies were invented in my opinion; that is to see a great action hero strut his stuff in a way most of us would love to emulate but never could.Seagal is one of the greatest in a long line of such icons and to see him do what he does best is worth putting up with a bit of PC moralising for as long as it does not encroach on the mayhem which it does not here.The British action movie magazine,the otherwise impeccable "IMPACT" disliked this movie immensely and every time they refer to it they call it "ON DUDLEY MOORE".That is a pathetic "joke" and only serves to pointlessly prevent gullible readers from seeing what is,along with Seagal's following film "UNDER SIEGE 2",the American action movie in excelsis.
