Meanwhile, the military command is ready to bomb the area and wipe it from the map. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Seagal Should Retire
20 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have a basic rule about films: I always see the ending. It does not matter if I like them, or even detest them ("The Snake People", "Hot Tub Time Machine" "The Adventures Of Pluto Nash", "Bowfinger", "Teenage Catgirls In Heat", "Walk On The Wild Side", "Jewel Robbery", "Billy Jack", and Valley Of The Dolls" are a few that come to mind), I always catch the ending (Even if it is just the last 10-15 minutes) to know how the film ended. "Against The Dark" is different, I could not even go back to watch the ending. There is nothing redeemable about it: No beautiful women, no humor, no catchy phrases, no suspense, no character to care one iota about, it did not even have a decent song for the credits (Like "Billy Jack & "Valley Of The Dolls" had). It is without question the worst film this side of "Machete" in Seagal's car (I would sooner sit down and watch stupid reality TV like "America's Next Top Model" or "Bridezilla's" above this film (At least some of the women are hot)). The only thing that could possibly be worse to watch is "Machete", "Walk On The Wild Side" and gay porn (Since I have never seen that (Nor intend to), I can only guess at that). As for Seagal, there is not a single "A-List" star in motion picture history whose career has fallen further, from when he was on top. This includes Boris Karloff who went from "Frankenstein" & "The Mummy" to "Isle Of The Snake People" and the "Ghost In The Invisible Bikini", Van Damme, or even Corey Feldman from "The Burbs" & "The Lost Boys" to "The Two Corey's". Seagal's performances in films like "Against The Dark", and "Attack Force" make the worst Charles Bronson movies at Cannon Films (Such as "Kinjite" and "Messenger Of Death") look like "Death Wish" or "Once Upon A Time In The West". The last Seagal film that was any good, "Half Past Dead" was made in 2002, which should tell him, it is time to retire, and never make anyone suffer through any of films again. I will never watch another Seagal film again
