Goofs

When paying for the physical nuclear device with diamonds, the European-terrorists say that they will give the American thugs a key to a safe deposit box with the rest of the diamonds after they get the plutonium. More than just a key is needed to get into a safe deposit box, you have to show ID and your signature must match the Signature Card for the box. The only other way is with a court order to open the box. See more »

Quotes

Jonathan Cold: You see, in this business... the keys to the kingdom is weapons-grade plutonium. If you ain't got that, you ain't got shit.

The sequel nobody asked for
8 April 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

BLACK DAWN is the sequel to THE FOREIGNER that nobody asked for. Steven Seagal returns as special agent Jonathan Cold, who must tackle a terrorist gang with plans on America. As anybody familiar with Seagal's work over the last fifteen years will know, this means that there's lot of low rent dialogue, doubling, cheesy action scenes, and general inanity.

Half the cast have British or foreign accents and seem to be struggling with the dialogue they're given. Seagal appears constipated throughout and is obviously doubled in all of his fight scenes. The film as a whole lacks the kind of familiar faces that show up in a lot of his other work, so it's more tiresome to sit through. It does pick up at the mid point for a surprisingly well mounted truck chase before descending back into ineptitude afterwards.
