Steven Seagal is one of those actors with a totally winning personality He is simply an authority figure, a killing machine with a heart of purest gold I can't help it; I like the guy.
In 'Fire Down Below,' he is an outsider posing as a church sponsored carpenter while he works for the Environmental Protection Agency to stop a greedy coal baron from dumping extremely large quantities of toxic wastes in abandoned coal mines Those dangerous chemicals could destroy the drinking water for thousands of miles and kill a bunch of people around the hills Seagal gallantly promised not to leave the small town until the poison from the air, the streams and the earth is taken out
Many thugs (with snakes, sticks, guns, and big trucks) are hired by the uncaring mining magnate to get rid of our action hero but Seagal remains virtually untouched
'Fire Down Below' highlights new environmental message but fails to come up with the expectations First, Seagal's amorous interest with the sad country woman seems artificial, used in the film to grant the 'new visitor' easy access to statements he might need Second, the motion picture lacks the best villain whose prowess could equals Seagal's... Steven's character never really faces much of a challenge In fact, the fight scenes are too short and extremely fast and easy
If you are a fan of country music and you want to see Seagal playing guitar and singing, and you like to explore sweeping vistas with glorious sunsets, don't miss this movie!
