Vietnam veteran Billy Ray Lancing, a former CSA agent who now works on a wildlife refuge in Northern Alaska, has been exchanging letters in a pen-pal relationship with Irina Morawska, a 13-year-old orphaned girl in Poland that he's helping out financially. When the letters suddenly stop coming, Billy heads to Poland to figure out why -- only to discover that the orphanage that Irena was staying in, which is financed by honest -- and unsuspecting -- good-intentioned Samaritans, is a cover for a human trafficking network. Run by a man named Faisal, the operation is worth billions -- girls are sold and traded to the highest bidders from all over the world. Through Billy's letters to Irina, Billy has taught Irina how to use secret codes, which she uses to keep Billy updated on where Faisal is taking her to. That's how Billy stays on Faisal's trail as Billy teams up with local cop Kasia Lato to rescue Irina and the other girls, and bring down Faisal's human trafficking network. Written by

After the semi-entertaining,back to basics approach of Belly of the
Beast it appeared that Seagal was on a minor comeback.Then along comes
out of reach to flush all that down the toilet.
Seagal is a retired agent(how many times can one man play a retired
agent!!!)who crashes a human slavery ring in Poland headed by
Matt(Transporter)Shultze.Get ready for some
bone-breaking,gun-fighting,neck-breaking mania that never happens.Its
not that it is totally boring,just unexceptional.
Out of reach is missing a lot of the trademarks that make up a Steven
Seagal movie.Not a lot of hand to hand action.More gunfighting instead.
The final Mano a Mano between Shultze and Seagal is just modest at
best.Seagal actually takes a few hits.The setting seems like the same
faceless location of his last three movies.
Seagal is a little better here.He handles the fights okay.But the
dubbing and the raspy voice make one question his health.Ida Nowakowska
holds her own and does a pretty good acting job as the cop helping
Seagal.Matt Schultze is the best thing Out of reach has going for it.He
plays a nasty villain as usual with high potential.But ends up wasted
and Ill used.
Good Idea undone by producers?Bad Director?Star?Who knows.It had some
potential.Its mauled by one of those freeze-frame-feel good endings.
I paid nearly 4 bucks to rent this and I don't feel good.
