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), ...Written by
The January 1994 Los Angeles earthquake almost caused this movie to be delayed. The roof at Technicolor collapsed from the quake, and damaged the negative. Luckily, a Technicolor technician was able to carefully repair the damage. 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.
