Film Review

Steven Seagal was one of the more established action stars that have emerged from Hollywood. Unusual for the fact that unlike Eastwood or Bronson, he had a relatively more "action hero" background: he was a 6th degree (presently 7th) black belt in Aikido and has served as a personal bodyguard for numerous personalities. In short, all that he needed was a movie camera to follow him around and somebody could have made an action movie already. Most action movies of the era were rather low in the script department ("Commando", "Cobra" etc.) and of course that would be very understandable since producers were undoubtedly banking on the popularity of the stars and the individual amounts of carnage each would inflict on screen. This of course would sit poorly with the more educationally inclined people and they have made it a habit to criticize each of the new movies of the genre and their countless spawn. But then let us face the fact: not all of these movies a…

This Steven Seagal's film debut deals about Nico,a tough Chicago cop, he's a CIA ex-agent,Vietnam veteran and Aikido expert.He teams up with a police woman(Pam Grier), forming a two-fisted cops duo.Nico takes on drug smuggling ringleader(Daniel Faraldo) and undergoes a violent confrontation against corrupts Cia agents(Henry Silva) and criminal gangs.The picture packs noisy action, buddy movie, thriller, shootouts, suspense and is quite entertaining.Violent and not particularly literary but worthy entry in action genre. Wooden Seagal plays the violent Nico, he cleans up Chicago city by means of punch, kicks, bounds and leaps, martial arts abound with fights certainly slick.The Aikido expert Seagal saves the day in this exciting movie which co-produced and wrote developing some autobiographic events about his real-life.In the film appear Sharon Stone in role secondary, as Nico's wife, furthermore Michael Rooker, almost extra and Ron Dean ,an actor which director Andrew Davis…

This was Steven Seagal's first movie and pretty much summed up the way his films were going to go: marital arts-crime stories with overly despicable villains and our hero saving the women by out-fighting everyone. Jean Van Damme and others followed with the same recipe which, by and large, has been pretty successful.Before I saw this, I had read national critics blasting Seagal's acting talents but that was unfair; he's not a bad actor. It was also a surprise to see Sharon Stone playing a nice role and without makeup! That certainly changed quickly with her Basic Instinct-type persona.It was fun to see Henry Silva again. As a kid growing up in the '50s and '60s, I used to see Silva on television a lot. He always played a bad guy, and played the part well….as he still does.Overall, a decent action flick but not one of Segal's more memorable films. He make a big upgrade with his next film, "Hard To Kill."
