Very cost-effective... And Steven Seagal is less and less stiff
15 January 2013 | by (Estonia) – See all my reviews

The plot is customary, but tensions and thrills are there and shooting/fighting has some kind of meaning, not just for (viewers) fun. Inclusion of Steve Austin and Michael Pare provides also additional value: Seagal does not dominate on screen and - after reaching 60 years

  • does not have to kick butt or give factitious remarks all the time.


The ending is guessable, of course, and there are trivial scenes containing kitchen utensils and hot steam, for example, but they do not seem ridiculous or dull. And due to the existence of inmates-intruders-defender, confrontation obtains extra dimensions.

In other words, Maximum Conviction is okay entertainment, a must for Seagal's fans and a killing-time for those not hating him and/or fond of military operation movies.
