Forrest Taft (Steven Seagal) is an environmental Agent who works for the Aegis Oil Company in Alaska. Aegis Oil's corrupt C.E.O., Michael Jennings (Sir Michael Caine), 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 (Richard Hamilton) 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 (Joan Chen), who introduces Taft to her father Silook (Chief Irvin Brink), the Chief of her tribe, rescues Taft. With Masu's help, Taft begins a trek through the Alaskan wilderness, heading straight for AEGIS-1 and to destroy it before it destroys all of the forest. —drayj65 <email@example.com>
The Great Action Thriller
Great plot, great scenery. Steven Seagal did a really good job as Forrest Taft. The fight scenes are really cool. I like how the story takes hold as the Alaska Wilderness is shown in opening credits. The music is great. Michael Caine did a great portrayal of the slimy Terrorist in charge of Agis 1: Michael Jennings. Another thing I like about the film is the wonderful scenery and the mountain ranges and the polar bears, deer and other Tundra animals you see in some parts of the movie. I love the explosion that goes up as Forrest tries to run from the spot where somebody he knew was killed by MacGruder and his men and tied up after he tried to help Forrest find out more about Jennings. I like the part where he sets an explosive that takes out several of MacGruder's Men. The films climax is spectacular. Taft runs about the Oil Rigs, taking care of the Mercenaries Jennings brought in. The explosion of the Oil Rig is spectacular! What else can I say? Great movie, great plot, great story and great scenery. Steven Seagal's movies rock! I saw this movie when it was recorded off the TV.
