I honestly think that this movie wasn’t put together well and that it is just a “B” movie. The acting wasn’t that great and the plot could have been developed a little bit better. There was no sex but there was a woman in leather it was tight and was not needed. There was a lot of violence where people are fist fighting, people getting killed with guns and in one instance there was a guy (bad guy) sacrificed so the good guy could save himself. This movie starts out with the main character (Steven Seagal) taking a lie detector test to see if he was “true” to the man he was working for.

They go deliver a package and they were ambushed by cops. Next you see them in prison and they both have sentences they have to server out. People Break in to get some info from a guy and he won’t tell so he kills a guy. They take hostages and take a judge hostage and put her in an electric chair and use that to get what they want. Steven Seagal comes in and saves the day, people are killed, but, in the end, everything is okay.

I found it to be predictable and is a waste of money to go see. There wasn’t a lot of redemption in this movie except that good wins over evil and that there is a mutual bond between Steven Seagal and Ja rule. Ja rule plays a minor part in this movie and it is just an action movie for guys!!!

Johnson, age 18
Positive—This movie was very action packed and had a lot of intense parts. If you are not into guns and hand to hand combat, it probably is not the movie for you. Pretty clean though!

Positive—This movie was one of the best action movies of the year. Steven Segeal did a great job acting in this movie. There was not much that is objectional. There is violence, and some language but overall this is a great movie, so if you have a Friday or Saturday night free I would recommend seeing this movie.

“…muses about God, justice and the afterlife, [but] it is more interested in endless gunfire and explosions, to numbing rather than gripping effect… morally offensive…
