Into The Sun **** of ****
16 February 2005 | by (U.S.A) – See all my reviews

It is interesting that so many people are giving this 7th dtv Seagal effort such a mediocre to bad rating. "Into the Sun" is Seagal's best and most enjoyable effort since 2001's "Exit Wounds"-this easily could have been a theatrical release as the production value of the film is much better than that of his previous efforts. Seagal plays Travis Hunter with much more charisma than in his last 5 efforts-and looks like he is having fun. The best acting job by Seagal since 1996's "The Glimmer Man"-The camera work is fast-the story is better than his last efforts, although it does take a while to get going. The last 20 minutes reminded me of the sword work from "Kill Bill"-very well done for a D.T.V effort-the action, though scarce, is done very well. Seagal fans should be happy with this latest effort.
