The Best Seagal Since "Exit Wounds" !!!
10 June 2009 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Finally, after 8 years once again a decent Seagal movie. It was about time. I'm certainly a fan of the man's glory days (Above The Law, Hard To Kill, Marked For Death, Out For Justice, Under Siege 1-2, On Deadly Ground) but was disappointed by almost everything that came after "Exit Wounds". I really liked "Urban Justice" and "Pistol Whipped" but the most annoying thing was the Obvious Stuntman for all the fight scenes. The budget wasn't too big either anymore. "Kill Switch" gave me mixed feelings because there was some good (and hard) action in that one. But the production values were rather bad. "Against The Dark" had Seagal in an action-horror flick which could have been a nice change for him, but the story had already been done to death (Resident Evil, Dawn Of The Dead, 28 days later etc..). With "Driven To Kill" Seagal goes back to the basics with an action-revenge story. Also nothing new there, but the result is surprisingly entertaining. The story is exciting, has a really good cast and the action is awesome. Not the moves from "Above The Law" but come on, that was 20 years ago. The Aikido master is too old for that. But there is a lot of hard physical contact, shoot-outs and at the end the local hospital turns into a war zone. If you enjoy a really good action movie (where are they these days ??) do not miss out on this one. You'll have a good time and witness the return of the true Steven Seagal. He is still the man. Can't wait for the next one. The master is back..
