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
There were allegations that Sir Michael Caine and Steven Seagal didn't get along. However, in Caine's memoir, The Elephant To Hollywood, he stated that he liked working with Seagal and the crew, but hated filming in Alaska, even joking that "On Deadly Ground" was an apt title. See more »
When Forrest enters Hugh's cabin you see, for about 2 seconds, the gun cabinet, with a bolt action rifle on the left, a single barrel shotgun in the middle, and another rifle on the right, but when they come DOWN from upstairs, the two rifles have swapped places, and the shotgun is now a DOUBLE barrel variety. Also, the two boxes of shells have moved from beside the rifle butt in the bottom right corner, to on a shelf near the top of the cabinet. See more »
The first half of the end credits run over images of Alaska and its various wildlife, until we see Forrest Taft & Masu in a canoe, with Taft pointing out to Masu, a crow in front of them circling over the water (supposedly meant to be Silook in another form) See more »
On Deadly Ground is the first movie, which is directed by Steven Seagal himself. Seagal plays Forrest Taft, a fireman in Alaska. He works for the greedy oil-billionaire Michael Jennings(Michael Caine), but Taft soon discovers Jennings`s filty plans. Jennings and his goons try to blow Taft away in a polluted factory, but Taft survives thanks to the local escimoes. Taft learns a lot about nature and the escimoes`s views of the industrialized world. The fight-scenes and action-scenes are as explosive and violent as ever in On Deadly Ground, but this movie gives us some important messages about the environment. The opening-credits are fantastic, as is the soundtrack composed by Basil Poledouris. I don`t really understand why people don`t like this movie, as it`s a very good one. 9/10
