Chicago DEA agent John Hatcher has just returned from Colombia, where his partner was killed in the line of duty by a drug dealer who has since been taken down. As a result of his partner's death, John has decided to retire, but his retirement may not be permanent. On the next day, after reuniting with his sister Melissa and Melissa's daughter Tracy, John gets into a shootout against a Jamaican drug kingpin known as Screwface, taking down some of Screwface's men. John brings himself out of retirement when Screwface retaliates by attempting to kill Melissa and Tracy. After the shooting, John is reunited with two old friends - a local high school football coach named Max, and a Jamaican Chicago cop named Charles. John and Max set out to hunt Screwface down, only to discover that Screwface has gone back to Jamaica. John and Max take Charles with them to Jamaica for an all out war against Screwface and his drug empire.Written by

The theatrical trailer shows some deleted scenes and extra/alternate shots of some action scenes, shots of John hitting one of the Jamaicans during the mall fight scene and hitting him again with neck chop, a shot of John sneaking around Screwface's mansion, an alternate shot of John hitting one of the Jamaican's during the hand to hand fight in mansion, and a deleted conversation scene between John and Tito Barco is also shown in which Barco asks John "Are you some kind of cop?" and John says "Nah, I'm just a concerned citizen."

During the attack on Screwface's Jamaican residence at the beach, Charles uses a HK MP5 with a silencer. This silencer was built by John Hatcher (Seagal) who demonstrated previously, that the firing noise was tremendously reduced. However when Charles fires the MP5, the weapon is apparently not silenced at all
(it's as loud as without a silencer). See more »
The posse phenomenon is estimated to be a fraction of one percent of the Jamaican population and should not detract from their country or the contributions Jamaicans have made to this country. See more »
The Australian DVD, although sporting the original R-rating award to the uncut version with no restrictions on violence, features the censored UK version (the same PAL master was used). See more »
You can split Segal films into 2 categories, the early stuff (Hard To Kill, Nico) and the later stuff (Fire Down Below, Today You Die). The latter group doesn't usually even get to the cinema but the former has some real action gems. Marked for death is one of them.
This film has loads of martial arts, Yardies, drugs, black magic, Drive by shootings, people dressed like Aswad, and the big black guy from platoon who escapes from the shootout at the end by getting rotated back to America. One of the things that ruins Segal films is having too much shooting and not enough fighting, But the action is pitched just right here, with still enough shooting thrown in to spice it up. The guys playing the Yardies are fantastic and the dialogue is second to none, in fact for those IDM fans out there Luke Vibert sampled some in 'screwface'. Other than Segal and the platoon guy the only person I recognised was Danny Trejo, Hollywoods default Mexican criminal. This is an action classic folks, watch it or Screwface will give you a thousand deaths worse than mine.
