pretty good
30 August 2000 | by (Nashville, Tennessee) – See all my reviews

This is the only Steven Seagal movie I actually like. It doesn't have a whole lot of action but a few interesting fight scenes. Randy Travis has a bit part as well. Steven goes into a small southern town where he believes some illegal activity is going on and finds out that tons of sewage is being dumped in the mines so of course he saves the day and also falls in love with that blonde lol, but it's sweet and this is a very enjoyable movie see it
