Warner Bros. wanted to make sure that Fire Down Below has the same fast pace and short running time like all the other Steven Seagal films he made for them in the previous years, so just like they did with all of those films, they heavily re-edited the movie and deleted lot of the plot and character scenes. But they also removed several big action sequences on which much of the $60 million budget was spent on.
These include opening action sequence involving Taggart and his partner Frank, who originally had lot more scenes but those were removed and entire original opening of the film was re-edited into few minutes long opening montage in the final cut of the film. Other deleted action sequences include really big and complicated chase scene which took place at night in woods and hills and it involved police cars chasing tanker truck full of toxic waste which eventually crashes into a train on the river bridge. Scene where Taggart kills second corrupt FBI agent by burning him alive in gas station explosion was also cut out and changed so that in the film he leaves him alive. Trailers for the film show many parts of deleted and alternate scenes including deleted action sequences. See more »
When the whiskey drinking guy is playing guitar he is holding a classical Spanish guitar, but as Seagal takes it out of his hands to start playing he is shown holding a different instrument, a steel stringed acoustic guitar. See more »
I'm going to Kentucky to check on a case. When I'm back, we're gonna go hunting. Do some fishing. We'll get away from all this stuff.
I appreciate the friendship. Means a lot to me.

It's been a few years coming, but not since 'Under Siege' has Steven Seagal easily fitted into his role. 'Fire Down Below' marks the beginning of a successful change of focus for Mr Seagal. Gone are the bone breaking fatal blows that really are not what Aikido is about anyway. The martial art scenes are done with speed and precision as always but are not over the top. After all, Mr. Seagal is a 7th Dan Black Belt Aikidoist. [Martial Art freaks who want blood and guts can go and watch 'Mortal Combat'.] The Mine Scene was a bit disappointing, a little unbelievable, but I did say this was the beginning of a change of focus. Gone is the basic Seagal signature type 'here comes the hero' music. Sound track is great - and yes he writes his own music and yes he can play the guitar. The scenery was great and cast, well it's as if they radiated Kentucky - I could feel it and I'm from Australia. I would have liked a little more passion at the end. Mr. Seagal seems a little ill at ease, but it may be a reflection of his own uneasiness with commitment, who wouldn't be after three marriages. All in all I liked it very much. I look forward to 'The Patriot' and 'Blood on the Moon'.
