Enjoyable, good directing.
16 November 2014 | by (Quebec) – See all my reviews

At this point in his career, you know what type of movie you're in when you watch a Steven Seagal movie. A B-action movie with some of his trademark aikido and fast cuts and camera angles in a way you don't see much of Seagal actually doing it. If you are down with that, then you can go and watch his movies. Not like the guy is trying to fool his audience.

But honestly, i think this movie was overall pretty well done. When Seagal is on screen the fights are interesting, it does not look like his stunt double at all, and it look pretty brutal.

Victor Webster also does a fairly nice job. I don't know if the guy has any background in martial arts, but he looked like he could fight in this and it looked realistic. Either this is a side of him i didn't knew, or the director/fight choreographer did a very good job in making it look good on screen.

What about the story? Its OK, kept me interested til the end, but there is not anything particularly stellar either. I would rank it slightly above the usual Seagal script of the post 2000s.

The movie did had its share of "meh-eh" situations here and there, but nothing to make you cringe too much. Definitely a good effort from Seagal. And just like Maximum Conviction and Force of Execution where he more or less gives the lead to his co-star, he gave a fair share to Victor Webster in this, but still keeping a little more screen time than the 2 previous ones i named. So it really feel like a Seagal at the same time.
