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.

Better than most of his recent films, but...
5 May 2008 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Compared to other recent Seagal films this one is OK, but it is nowhere near as good as his early movies (Under Siege, Above The Law, Hard To Kill, all of which have an honorary place in my DVD collection).

On the plus side, they don't even bother hiding the fact that Steven has become old and fat. However, he doesn't take himself too serious, by playing a down-on-his-luck drunk. The film itself is alright. Roel Reiné, the Dutch director who recently stated that his goal to make Blade Runner-like movies in the future, made the best out of it he could. He pursued Seagal to do more of his own fighting, talking and... well everything (since he has stand-ins for almost everything in other recent movies, even stepping out of a car). The plot is decent and the camera work is entertaining.

But then there's a protagonist who just doesn't want to be there. Sorry Steven, each time I try to like your films, but you just don't like making them anymore, and it shows. It is nice to see Steven do his own fighting again (or at least not with the obvious use of stunt doubles all the time), but a real comeback is still far, far away.
