A passion project of Seagal. Next to starring, Seagal also wrote the script and produced. Originally, he was also to direct, but in the end the film was helmed by director Mathieu Weschler instead. See more »
In all his melee fight scenes, Steven Seagal is mostly replaced with a stuntman. Although this stuntman is filmed from behind, it can still be noticed that he is much slimmer than Seagal and has a slightly different hairstyle. See more »
what the hell did i watch
I love bad movies, and I don't say this a lot, but this really was one of the worst movies I ever saw (and I've seen many Steven Seagal movies or Z-movies).
If he hadn't written it himself and some decent write would have written a story based on the same premise, than it might have been decent. But he wrote it himself, and he makes his character to be something like a best enlightened person in the world..
The cinematrography of the movie is pretty good, but the acting is really crap. The story really makes no sense and a lot of times the scenes don't actually really have anything to do with the story itself, just primairily to show Seagal off.
There is so much wrong with the writing of this movie, it's just ridiculous. As I said, if only they hired a real writer it might have been something.
There is only one pretty good martial arts scene in the movie, and that's the one without Steven Seagal, only the two asian guys fighting each other..
The end fight isn't even remotely interesting, with a real movie there would at least be some setback for the main character, but nope, Seagal just flaps his hands a bit and the end boss is dead.. And then it ends in one boring useless monologe..
Only thing I can think of why people would give this movie anything above a 4 is because they worked on it themselves..
He talks about humility, but this movie clearly shows he doesn't have any himself, it's all ego, nothing but seagal ego.. and that get's very annoying..
