Trivia

In the beginning of the movie, a garbage-truck can be seen entering the prison. On the back it says "Troy - Disposal services". The logo next to this is the head of a horse. This is a reference to the ancient Greek myth of the battle of Troy in which a big wooden horse plays a vital role. The lettering on the truck foreshadows events that await in the movie. See more »

Quotes

Chris Blake: I got you outmanned and outgunned two to one. I guess you're not so clever after all.
Cross: It ain't the amount - it's the skill. The skill the guy's got, that's what it is.

Minimum Convincing
20 April 2013 | by LeonLouisRicciSee all my reviews

Steven Seagal's final line in this Movie is..."it's not over till we're dead". Possibly a shout-out to his relentless critics that endlessly tell him to retire or at the very least to lose some weight. In this Movie he seems to be trying to end the laziness. He is not dubbed here and manages to find just enough breath to make his lines understandable. He is not doubled here and actually does his own Martial Arts scenes.

So that is the upside. Steve Austin on the other hand makes the other Steve look like a thoroughbred Thespian. Seriously, does this guy have ANY expressions or changes of tone to his voice. He has got be the worst Action Hero Actor ever, bar none. But hey, he is an imposing physical presence and that is the minimum requirement to convince.

This is a darkly lit, endless trek down corridors and around corners. Stiff and long scenes in front of consoles and computer keyboards. It jumps and pulls the frame once in a while to try a bit of styling but no go. Anyway there is quite a bit of gunfire and a goodly amount of hand to hand and enough Characters to allow for a large body count, so if this is for you, have at it, and for the curious to see if maybe Segal is on a self-imposed comeback.
