Forrest Taft is an environmental agent who works for the Aegis Oil Company in Alaska. Aegis Oil's corrupt CEO, Michael Jennings, is the kind of person who doesn't care whether or not oil spills into the ocean or onto the land, just as long as it's making money for him. He even makes commercials that make him look like he cares about the environment. Jennings is almost finished with building his new state-of-the art oil rig: AEGIS-1. The problem is that if he doesn't finish building the rig in thirteen days, the land rights will be returned to the Eskimos and the Alaskan government. When Jennings finds out that Taft's best friend Hugh Palmer has a computer disk that contains information about defective equipment on AEGIS-1, he sends out his goons to murder Palmer. When Taft tries to interfere, Jennings tries to kill Taft. But an Eskimo woman named Masu, who introduces Taft to her father Silook, the chief of her tribe, rescues Taft.

This film wasn't Steven Seagal's first choice for his directorial debut. Twentieth Century Fox and Morgan Creek Productions initially offered him the mafia drama "Man of Honor" as a starring/director/writer vehicle. Fox didn't want to pay over $30 million, so production shut down a few weeks before filming. See more »
When Forrest enters Hugh's cabin, the gun cabinet is briefly visible, with a bolt action rifle on the left, a single barrel shotgun in the middle, and another rifle on the right.

The two boxes of shells have moved from beside the rifle butt in the bottom right corner, to a shelf near the top of the cabinet. See more »

The first half of the end credits run over images of Alaska and its various wildlife, until we see Forrest Taft & Masu in a canoe, with Taft pointing out to Masu, a crow in front of them circling over the water (supposedly meant to be Silook in another form) See more »

ACTION HERO SAVES THE ENVIRONMENT BY BLOWING UP OIL WELLS
ON DEADLY GROUND is similar to the BILLY JACK films in delivery. The film has a eco friendly action hero who works for a corrupt oil barron. The film meshes eco friendly plot points with action adventure for a film that was hard to swallow for some. There has been much critcism of this film, yet it made money on video. Supposedly the film was a monetary let down in theatrical realese. No matter what the verdict, Seagal delivers his usual formula of martial arts and gunfire to please most of his fans.
