Uncredited writer Sam Hayes was assigned to touch up the original script without knowing the film was to star Steven Seagal. The producers claimed that Hayes' version, which was set in Mexico, would cost too much to film, and thus, very little of his material remains in the finished movie. See more »
When in the Chinese Barber Shop, the barber pulls the blind down over the door, a few seconds later, he closes it again. See more »
Can he sink any lower? Probably yes, because at the rate he is going turning back is going to be very hard. It was after Exit Wounds that Seagal started his nose dive which has yet to end. Half Past Dead was a good step up from Ticker, but it still was only OK. Now we arrive at... ...this horrible film. It contains a bland to the max story of vengeance on the people who killed Seagal's wife. Some of the scenes are also so overly and ridiculously dramatic that you'll cringe. And Seagal, in this film, plays Seagal. That's right, he plays himself. He just shows up on screen pretending to be a professor and the audience expects him to start fighting with people soon and that's what happens.
No character development to speak of just mundane fights one after another. The bad guys are really stupid and just sit around a table somewhere. One by one they disappear and we are led to believe that they among the films body count. Does that sound dumb and confusing? Well that's because it is. 2/10
Rated R: violence and profanity
