The start of a return to form for Mr. Seagal ?
11 March 2019 | by homecoming8See all my reviews

The late '80's and '90's saw the rise - and fall - of 2 credible action heroes: Jean-Claude van Damme and Steven Seagal. They also both made mostly crappy films after that. Seagal had his last highlight with 2001's "Exit Wounds" but that same year we also saw the terrible "Ticker". In 2004 Anthony Hickox (Warlock: The Armageddon, Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth) directed him in "Submerged" which was rumored to be an unofficial "Under Siege" sequel. It turned out to be another terrible and cheap production with Seagal sleepwalking through the script that made no sense at all.

Since then Steamroller Productions released dozens of cheap and uninspired action films with Seagal having limited screen time, often dubbed, stunt men that looked totally different, boring shoot outs with cheap CGI blood, and so on.. In 2016 he even managed to have 7 (!!) films released, one even worse than the other.

"Attrition" is totally different. The production values and cast are good and the story is beautifully shot in Southeast Asia. And Seagal does act for a change. There are a couple of decent martial arts scenes where the stuntman is very limited. The story isn't heavy on action but has a message (human trafficking) and it includes elements of "Taken" and "The Expendables" in the last 20 minutes.

The downside is the use of obvious CGI blood and effects. It's a breath of fresh air to see the aikido master try again for a change, something that wasn't the case is his latest 20 films or so.

"Attrition" is just an average film but worth a look, especially for fans of his earlier work. He will never make another big budget action classic like "Under Siege" but this is a step in the right direction.
