When the bomb is armed the CIA agent tells Seagal to disarm it but he refuses, stating that tampering with it might set it off but when the bomb is seen in the back of the helicopter the printed circuit boards that acts as the electronic trigger and countdown is clearly seen lying on top of each other. This would also be extremely dangerous because the PCBs would be in danger of being short circuited and thus detonating the bomb prematurely. See more »
Who the Hell are you? I'm Steven Seagal playing Jonathan Cold, hired assassin, out to stop a group of terrorists from destroying Los Angeles with a compact nuclear device.
We get the usual mumbled laboured dialogue from Seagal, the slow motion movement. A stunt double was used for many scenes and the usual rule is, if it moves, it's the double.
I didn't find the supporting cast as irritating compared to other Seagal flicks. John Pyper Ferguson and Julian Stone make reasonable bad guys while Tamara Davies is easy on the eye and puts in a competent performance as Seagal's sidekick.
The filming is good, the plot is sensible, well sort of, and there is lots of shooting if you like that sort of thing.
Overall this isn't the worst Seagal film. The first and last 20 minutes are pretty good even though the middle section drags quite a bit.
