Trivia

In an online interview, Gary Daniels claimed that his onscreen fight with Steven Seagal was originally conceived as much longer and showier by stunt coordinator Steve Griffin. Seagal supposedly choreographed the fight himself on the day it was filmed, rendering it much shorter and one-sided. See more »

Goofs

The mP5 submachine guns used throughout the movie lack a real front site. The guns look like toys. See more »

Steven Seagal kicks ass. Period.
5 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First of all, I feel sorry for anyone who can't watch this movie and enjoy it. Anyone who rents a Seagal DTV flick and expects it to be good is either a glutton for punishment or has taken far too many drugs. Look, if you've seen one of them, you do realize they're all going to be roughly the same, right? It always amazes me when people post reviews that contain the following words: "Too many overdubs, Seagal is fat, the special effects are tacky." Alright...everyone...all together now...WE KNOW! Thanks.

Okay, now that I got that out of the way, let's face it. Seagal kicks ass. It is now time to introduce everyone to my concept of "bad-ass-itude". Seagal has it. In fact, his level of bad-ass-itude is directly proportional to his weight and the length of his curiously frizzy mullet. Whether we're talking about his major releases or his wonderfully awful DTVs, the man kicks ass. When I watch a Seagal film, I laugh at the awful parts, and cheer when he beats the crap out of someone. It's kind of like watching an 80s hair band, in 2005. Yeah, they're all fat and old now, but they still rock. And if you don't understand the Way in which Seagal rules, then you have no business renting his movies.

Submerged is actually pretty good. In fact, relative to his last few, Submerged is an early Oscar contender. The movie is actually quite stylish, for the budget. They do a good job of "teching" up the transitions (kind of like a low budget Enemy of the State or something of that nature). The jump-cuts and slow-mos aren't nearly as ridiculous as they have been in his previous movies. I think its really funny that we Seagal fans can actually have a discussion about the overdubs in THIS movie and the gratuitous use of superimposed text in THAT movie. It's like a genre of ridiculosity in and of itself.

Anyway, there are some truly brutal moments in this film. Seagal, though he doesn't have a lot of fight scenes, manages to beat down quite a few people. Yes, he's fat, but he could still waste about 99% of the people on this earth. As a person who has dabbled in the martial arts, his moves are somewhat more exciting to me than they may be for many of the "movie critics" on this page. Even though he's old and fat, he's still got it.

Has anyone else noticed that Seagal thinks he's black? That's always entertaining to me. I'm too lazy to check up on which one it is, but this reminds me of the movie in which he uttered the phrase "Ya ain't nothing' but a trailah park bitch." I don't know why he does this, but I'm sure glad he does. Anyway, he does it in this movie as well.

The only Seagal trademark this movie is missing is the completely unnecessary gratuitous boob-shot, but that can be forgiven. I was also slightly disappointed that there weren't any sea mutants, but hey...they can't all be winners. The plot was pretty good though, not very original, but entertaining. It was a little confusing at times, but then again there's no real point in analyzing the plot to a Seagal movie. These movies are vehicles for violence. In fact, all the movies are pretty much the same. Seagal is always a mercenary, ex-CIA, ex-Special Ops, ex-Navy Seal, history professor who's (*insert family member or wife here*) has been kidnapped by evil terrorists. He has issues with his superiors, has a terrible mullet, pretends he's a race other than his own, gains 15 pounds from the first frame to the last, and kills people. If you expect anything else (or more) from these movies, you are an idiot. So stop seeing them and leave us fans alone. These are as funny as they are awesome, and if you don't get that, then you don't understand bad-ass-itude.

"Ya ain't nothing' but a trailah park bitch."
