Brilliant!!! Seagal answers his critics: He's still got it!
7 November 2007 | by melon_handsSee all my reviews

Without a shadow of a doubt, Seagal's best film since Fire Down Below. Exit Wounds? This is better. A simple story which is held together solidly. Forget all the recent awful straight-to-DVD releases like Flight of Fury and Submerged...this is a real quality action flick which deserves to be among Steve's best. Seriously, this is of the quality of his Warner Brothers films. A really enjoyable kickass film.

NO DUBBING! Seagal says all his own lines! STUNT DOUBLE ON THE SIDELINE! Seagal gives out some of his best kickings in years! Eddie Griffin is also great as the f-word machine Armand Tucker. He has some really funny lines which will have you laughing out loud. He's right up there with Travis Dane, Commander Krill and Screwface in the Seagal baddie stakes.

The supporting cast in general is good. Amazing gun-totting car chases. Also...am I the only one who can hear a sample of Nana's 'Lonely' during the score soundtrack? £9.99 well spent.
