When the Chinese commandos sneak up on the headquarters at night, they carefully step off the boat and wear camoulflage makeup as they stalk through the dark. One thing - they have bright flashlight beams attached to their weapons that would make them visible from a mile away. See more »

Next stop Washington state for the aikido master. Framed for murder and condemned to six years in prison, ex-Special Forces operative Shane Daniels (Steven Seagal) gets caught up in a war between Chinese drug dealers and corrupt cops. Daniels allies with the Russian quarter and decides that exacting justice is his best policy for freedom.
There are a few continuity issues but the pacing is good and some good tension keeps the viewer gripped. The gunfights are overlong, and a Chinese Colonel as a villain seems a bit bleak. Nevertheless, along with The Keeper, A Dangerous Man is probably the best film Seagal has made for nearly a decade
