Uncredited writer Sam Hayes was assigned to touch up the original script without knowing the film was to star Steven Seagal. The producers claimed that Hayes' version, which was set in Mexico, would cost too much to film, and thus, very little of his material remains in the finished movie. See more »

I haven't seen The Foreigner but if it's the same director Michael Oblowitz, then avoid it and this film like the plague. Talk about directing/editing basics, this man has no idea of either when it comes to action films. I've liked most of Seagal's films but this is lower than the pits.
Oblowitz has no idea how to edit or direct an action film, he should go back to film school and start again. In fact Oblowitz don't bother.
A disaster for Seagal, the biggest bore of a film I've seen for a long time, to give it 1 out of 10 is being too kind.
