Trivia

Reportedly, Seagal traveled everywhere in the company of a Buddhist adviser whose verdicts on the state of Seagal's karma would be reason enough for Seagal to halt filming for a day. See more »

Half Past Dead_ Steven Seagal's career
17 January 2006 | by CraigMeighanSee all my reviews

Half Past Dead Oh Yes! It's actually called Half Past Dead! By the time i'd finished laughing at the title of this ridiculous Seagal movie it was nearly finished. Dutifully i rewound and started again. I should warn you, should you watch the film after seeing the box, the name "steven seagal" or the hilarious title, it is spectacular. If you don't laugh out loud at the maliciously bad acting on display, the plot's definitely gonna make you laugh. The stunt work is fine as usual, but the action scenes despite their groovy slow-mo, are completely flat and boring. why would you ever care about characters so detestable as these? seagal can't act, but now he's old he can't even fight. But to surround him with a bunch of c-list rappers and card board cut outs is unforgivably bad.
