Great Saturday Matinee Film!
Half Past Dead is un-pretentious, un-boring, un-real, and fun to watch. Leave your expectations for great story telling, and insightfulness at the door, and just enjoy a fairly entertaining film.
What it's got: Good actors and casting, action, noise, snappy lines, simple morality, and escapism to an unusual setting. Lots of never-empty machine guns, 'hip' dialogue, lightly painted characters.
What it doesn't have: gratuitous sex, lots of swearing, grounded-in-reality believeability, earth shattering artsy-fartsy direction.
Seagal is understated, and plenty cool as the hero, and it was nice to have three competent females in Claudia Christian, Nia Peeples, and Linda Thorson. The 'jailhouse gang' was well selected, and played. Every character in the film added just enough spice and variation that it was not just a Seagal vehicle.
This is a no-brainer, shootemup, with unambiguous good guys and bad guys, well worth the price of admission. Don't miss this film if you watch movies for the fun of it.
Request to Hollywood: Put Claudia Christian and Nia Peeples together in a film as headliners. The characters in this film would be a good starting point, and you could even toss in Linda Thorson's character for good measure. Definite possibilities! ~~~~~~~~~~~
