The big man's back in business in yet another cookie-cutter action vehicle. This time around, the lacklustre plot sees Seagal jailed for a crime he didn't commit (or did he?). Years later, he's out on the streets and soon stumbles into an all-out drugs war between two rival mafia gangs: one Russian, one Chinese.
The ensuing mayhem will come as no surprise to anybody who's seen a Seagal film, as he kicks, beats, breaks and shoots his way through various bad guys without ever getting a scratch himself. From the outset, A DANGEROUS MAN stands out as one of the star's more violent outings. The portly fighter has a real sadistic streak in this one: not just content to beat up his enemies, he mutilates them as well as breaking various bones.
Quickly dispensing with an embarrassing sex scene early on, this hits its stride in good time and proves to be never less than entertaining: the plot is derivative but the story movies at speed and the action sequences are plentiful and well handled. Sure, it will never win any awards, but at least it's never boring. Fans should find this one of Seagal's better films of recent years.
