horrible movie
2 June 2002 | by gratefulfred-1See all my reviews

caught most of this movie on tv late last night. It was so bad, I had to write a review. Seagal is so out of shape that when they show his supposed karate scenes, they only show glimpses of his hands moving and mostly show the person he's attacking as it may not even be him doing the karate chops. In a few scenes where he's doing roundhouse style kicks, I'm pretty sure they had a stunt double stand in for him as they only show the legs and not who's they are. I'm pretty sure the guy is too fat to actually get his legs up in the air. In the shootout scenes with Seagal, there will be like 5 or more guys spraying him with machine gun fire, but none of them will hit him. He will then either shoot them or waddle over and throw a few karate chops and knock them unconscious. The plot is so lame its almost funny. The movie basically ends with Seagal and his cohort disarming two bombs with just a few seconds left on the timers. gee, how original is that? this was the quality of a bad made-for-TV movie. The only possible redeeming quality of this movie is that it is somewhat humorous it is so bad.
