July Force with Steven Segal
4 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is more like the Steven Seagal that I used to enjoy in the early 90s in films like Hard to Kill, Out for Justice and Marked for Death. He actually is this movie and appears in almost every scene.

Apparently he has run through enough dead wives that no one would marry him, so he is after the person who killed his son. He is a determined killing machine.

As expected from a film that features urban gangs, every other word is f*cker or motherf*cker. I actually think they have beaten Scarface with this film.

The only real criticism I had was the lighting. Almost the entire film took place at night and it was hard to watch. I guess that is to be expected in an urban environment.

My man, Danny Trejo, gets his 15 seconds of fame in the movie.
