      William D One of the worst movies I have ever seen and has ever been made. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 11/27/23 Full Review Audience Member This has to rank as the worst Steven Seagal movie I've watched...yet. Unlike some reviews on other sites, I didn't find the fight scenes as bad as The Foreigner but the movie overall was absolutely putrid. The storyline was utterly ridiculous, the "dialogue" that seems as if it was voiced-over AFTER the fact (seriously, in probably 75% of the movie, there was no interaction between characters; it was someone speaking away from the camera so you never saw any facial movements, no interaction, etc)...I don't want to waste a lot of time reviewing this steaming pile. Suffice it to say that it was absolutely awful. Never ever ever EVER watch this. What a smelly heap of garbage. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review kevin c Steven Seagal plays a professor of archaeology....which right away puts this into a realm of fantasy....who discovers the artifacts are being used to mule drugs. He's wrongly accused and takes it upon himself to get revenge on the Chinese gangsters who killed his wife. Usual Seagal fare here with a bit more Chinese mysticism than usual. Like any Seagal movie, it's watchable but just not for the same reasons that made him popular in the 80's. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member So bad that it's good. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member I have no faith in steven seagal or his straight to DVD no more because this film was pure crap. Shame on u Seagal Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member The action is ok for a post-theatrical Seagal but it's still awful. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Aug 29, 2005 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...Seagal's expanding size requires him to use a stunt man during such moments, and the switch from Seagal to stunt guy couldn't possibly be more obvious... Rated: .5/4 Apr 25, 2004 Full Review Scott Weinberg eFilmCritic.com Even what should be the focal point of a 'Steven Seagal movie' (i.e. the punching of throats) is delivered in a style so shoddy that it boggles the mind. Rated: 1/5 Nov 11, 2003 Full Review Read all reviews
