      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Seagal is now too bulky to make a convincing action hero, and Half Past Dead is too silly and incoherent to deliver any visceral kicks.

      John K Ugh. Beginning of the end of Seagal's career. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 12/26/23 Full Review William D One of the worst movies I have ever seen. Do not watch this movie. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 11/27/23 Full Review ohakwe O A movie you must see Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/06/23 Full Review Ian R Don't know how this excremental film ever got made. I suppose the answer is that Seagal paid for it. Not a single redeeming feature in this movie. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 08/02/23 Full Review Audience Member A rather routine if not trivial exercise. Half Past Dead acts as another action film no one will remember and for good reason. Un-inspired plot and dull characters do not create an intelligent or interesting film. Even if the soundtrack works most of the time and the production design look 'cool'. Half Past Dead is something I would only recommend to the few remaining Steven Seagal Fans. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member What still compels and lingers notoriously is its curious reception within a yearly rotten position, not as a star vehicle for Seagel who's depreciatively inactive with evidently decent charisma, just to find another of those early 21st century flicks replicating MTV whilst parodying previous blockbusters with bad dazzlements, picturing this as genre-abusively uninteresting, effortlessly unfocused, and senselessly crappy.

      Susan Stark Detroit News Rated: 1/4 Mar 10, 2007 Full Review Philip French Guardian A sizeable amount of the budget for this lazy film must have been spent on ammunition. Mar 7, 2007 Full Review J. R. Jones Chicago Reader The title of this dismal action flick refers to the Seagal character's having suffered a near-death experience, though he's returned from the other side with a remarkable lack of insight. Jan 6, 2007 Full Review Kevin Carr Fat Guys at the Movies The tag line for Half Past Dead is "The good. The bad. And the deadly." They should have stuck with simply, "The Bad." Rated: 2/5 Jan 10, 2016 Full Review Felix Vasquez Jr. Cinema Crazed Low quality even for Seagal's standards. Apr 12, 2014 Full Review Michael Dequina TheMovieReport.com I can't think of anything more cringe-inducing than Seagal saying, in a strained would-be ghetto accent, 'We aight.' Rated: 1.5/4 Jan 29, 2009 Full Review Read all reviews
