Trivia

Imelda Staunton filmed for two days, but Seagal did not film any reverse angles with her. All the scenes where her character speaks with Seagal's character were done with the help of a stand-in and a Romanian film student. See more »

Goofs

In the scene when Seagal shot the two cops in the apartment, the surviving one had a bullet hole on the back of his jacket with a blood stain. However the jacket is new and clean in the later scenes. See more »

Steven Seagal puts no effort in his acting
12 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Before I start I would like to say that I already know Seagal isn't known for his acting but for his fight scenes. Exit Wounds was a fun thriller where Seagal actually put effort in his acting. Into the Sun wasn't that bad of a film either which had a decent plot. This film just had nothing.

What can I say, Steven Seagal keeps throwing films at us. They are completely rushed. Segal plays Jack where his daughter gets kidnapped and all he does is watch and with no emotion as his daughter is taken away from her. Throughout the movie Jack never does show anytime of emotion. I know that Seagal plays a tough guy throughout his movies but this was so over the top.

The directing and the editing also credits for this mess as plot holes developed quickly. Such examples included that Seagal would trust people to quickly than all the sudden he would become best friends.

If you are a Seagal fan than this movie wouldn't bother you. It doesn't compare to Exit Wounds but I can say, this film was better than his previous three (Submerged, Today You Die, and Black Dawn). That really isn't saying much. I will admit I enjoy watching Seagal films even though I usually disappointed.

Overall this film gets a 2 for directing, 2 for editing, 2 for acting, 2 for plot, and 6 for the stunts.
