Solid TV movie movie.
9 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Let me begin by introducing Elijah and the principal members of his team which should give you some idea of what you're dealing with.

Elijah "Papa Bear" (I'm calling him) Kane: Leader of the SIU undercover operation. Will punch you, flip you, or twist something you need until it breaks without a strand of his curious hair coming out of place.

Radner: Member #1 of Elijah's team. Scruffy, likable bad boy with a nice wit. Nowhere near the fighter that Elijah is though, and possibly the female members of the team. However, he will do whatever it takes to get back at you if you f!!ck with him.

Juliet: Member #2 of Elijah's team. Beautiful, long-legged brunette with an interesting dialect I'm still wrestling with. She's experienced, competent, and keeps cool under pressure. It's possible a man might enjoy it if she smacks him around a bit.

Mason: Member #3 of Elijah's team. Hardworking, by-the-book guy. Partner of Radner and voice of his conscience. Advisory: Got anything fun and risqué planned don't take him. He takes a bullet well, though.

Sarah: Member #4 of Elijah's team. New to the team. Pretty, but serious girl. Not as confident in the field as her partner Juliet but will hit what she shoots at and has no want for courage. Add to this a sharp tongue that's capable of expertly leaving a man sans his testicles if he disrespects her.

Seagal plays Elijah Kane (Gotta love that name),leader of an undercover law enforcement operation based in Seattle, Washington; the SIU.This is a crime drama focusing on murder and drugs. The movie starts out with the brutal shotgun murders of the owners (a man and woman) of a grocery store outside Seattle Washington. Directly afterward, the beginning credits appear to a catchy song I kinda liked (Is that Seagal singing?) accompanied by music video-style preview snippets of the movie.

After the introduction of a new female recruit to Elijah's SIU team, the movie gets rolling with a drug buy & bust involving a small time drug peddler who later on makes a deal to give up his contact (as they usually do, it seems) in exchange for leniency. In turn, his contact (or supplier), a hard case named Crystal who works in a strip club, rats out her supplier, a man named Domion, leader of a rag-tag bunch camping out on the outskirts of town. A Russian connection is later discovered, the principal of which is a man named Nikoli. He and his operation becomes the focus for the last half of the film. Concurrent with all of this --and connected-- is the ongoing and developing investigation of the murdered shopkeepers that occurred at the top of the movie.

Speaking with some kind of southern-style accent, I guess, Seagal plays his role as a kind of amiable, experienced, "Papa Bear" who could get rough while maintaining an easygoing, unperturbed, demeanor as if he were dealing with naughty children (Never mind that some of them are seriously trying to kill him or bash his brains in). For this film he chose to encase his girth in solid black throughout; possibly subscribing to the belief that black makes you look thinner which I'm inclined to doubt. Even his hair, a bizarre shoe polish black widow's peak brushed straight back, matched. I like Seagal, mind you, but you have to admit that his chosen hair style seems more suited to someone who wears a long black cape and comes from Transylvania.

I actually enjoyed Seagal's fight scenes in this movie which has a kind of "intercepting" and "economical" style quality to it wherein he quickly interrupts whatever it was you started to do or were planning to do with a quick punch in the face. This smartly nips things in the bud, I believe, before they turn into something that requires him to be more physically active than he's able to be or wants to be. Great style for the larger gentleman. Add to this some judo, and a penchant for twisting whatever you choose to throw at him into an awkward position and breaking it, and you've got some decent action I think. Finally, I surprised myself by liking everyone in this movie --even the bad guys. I think everyone played their parts well and there was good chemistry throughout. Love, Boloxxxi.
