Steven Seagal is a hard man to kill. Especially when he's out to stop corruption. Watch out thugs and government officials (oh we know how corrupt they are). As Seagal hands out plenty of broken arms, but before getting warmed up (although he does encounter some thugs in a shop outlet) he's gunned down in his home with his family murdered. After being comatose for 7 years he awakes and now he's out to settle a score. All the best moments come when Seagal is laying flat in bed doing nothing and everything after that is a bonus. Where can you get a comatose Seagal with long stringy hair, a fuzzy beard, Kelly Labrock asking if he wants a little pussy and then putting a little kitten by his head. Oh there are some priceless dialogues
also Seagal's usual philosophical banter. Before exacting revenge
He's targeted but escapes from the hospital while still lying in his bed. On the run he recovers with Labrock in a secluded house that she's house-sitting. Now we go through the motions
Seagal's motions. Healing physically and mentally
the Buddha way. Being stoically humorous, running up hills, breaking wooden planks and thinking of the past. Then he gets a little bored (decked back in black leather jacket, tight jeans and sporting the slick ponytail); but he doesn't have to go to them as they come to him. His almighty senses come to light (you know that sixth sense) and formulaic taut action erupts. Simple-minded revenge - brutal, scorching and explosive. Don't think about it (ridiculously plotted), just enjoy it. It's a tough, unpleasant barrage of set-pieces and we know how Seagal enjoys playing fair. The bad guys are your typical smarmy lot and cop a beating, a painful beating. "I'm gonna take you to the bank
. The blood bank".
