Aside from a number of cringe-worthy direct-to-video cinematic appearances, Steve Seagal has made some
great good movies. Under Siege is a classic of sorts. Having met Mr. Seagal at SHOT Show a couple of years ago, I can attest to the fact that the Michigan-born actor/entrepreneur/singer/honorary Serbian/martial artist/Reserve Deputy Chief/environmentalist is so cool you’d swear he’s drugged.
Anyway, I’m delighted to welcome Mr. Seagal’s cinematic return, complete with some not-entirely-objectionable plastic surgery, an extra gravelly voice and Eastwood-like monochromatic line delivery. That said . . .
You’ve got to wonder why Mr. Seagal’s racking a gun with a round in the chamber. Especially for a complete gun guy — who’s not averse to using a tank in “real life.”
Come to think of it, maybe the producers insisted on the racking sound so beloved of action movies, and Seagal said fine, but I’m not racking on an empty chamber. Yeah, let’s go with that.
When was the last time you saw a Seagal movie (and which one was it)?
