Goofs

Soon after Matt has been shot in the arm, he favors it and is holding it in pain at the cookout. Steve even comments on it. Shortly after the cookout, when he's holding a gun in his hand and aiming it at the old man for a couple minutes, he has no problem, and the wound is not an issue for the rest of the movie.

Quotes

Drea: And after, like, a bunch of years I finally realized what I really needed to do was grow a dick.
Matt: Well, probably I would like you a lot less if you had a dick.
Matt: Especially if it was bigger than mine, you know what I mean?
Drea: I don't think that's possible.

Pretty slick Seagal outing
19 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

An unremarkable action thriller, but probably one of Steven Seagal's best films so far. This one has a plot that actually keeps your interest (even though the main "twist" is telegraphed ahead of time) by going beyond the simple "they killed his loved ones and now he wants revenge" scenario, without becoming a muddled mess like, say, "Mercenary For Justice". It also has a pretty slick look, and the action includes a well-filmed car chase climaxing with a spectacular car flip, and a John Woo - style graveyard shootout at the end. Seagal tries to play a morally ambivalent character, which he does up to a point, but the usual problems associated with his characters (the invulnerability and the vanity) are still present (wait till you hear a girl's remark about a certain body part of his). He is still overweight and most of the fight scenes are blink-and-you'll-miss-them, but at least he is there doing them, and doing them efficiently. The movie also benefits from a good supporting cast, though Lance Henriksen should have had more screen time. Renee Goldsberry is gorgeous & tough and earns "Pistol Whipped" a few more points. (**1/2)
