Real fan review
16 September 2007 | by jason-davenportSee all my reviews

Just saw this movie and wasn't expecting much as his films since exit wounds have been abysmal in my opinion, i haven't even watched flight of fury because by that point i gave up and just started watching the old seagal films when he used to do his own fighting an speech.well this film is a near return to form, its action packed very violent loads of seagal kicking ass, and i didn't spot one voice over, the acting wasn't bad either it is definitely his best film since exit wounds. Steven is still pretty out of shape but he pulls this movie off, there is loads of hand to hand combat,guns,knives and car action. Eddie Griffin does a good job as a gang boss and ads some decent humour to the movie. Don't get me wrong this is no masterpiece and some of the fighting is speeded up but i think real seagal fans will love this and will see it as a very big step in the right direction.
