His fight's always look real in this movie and it's not overdone with automatic weapons like his latter films. It was not a sleeper from the beginning. Henry Silva is creepy as the bad guy, surrounded by a group of weasel henchmen who eventually all get their ticket punched by Seagal. When I saw this movie for the first time twenty-five years ago, I immediately became fan of this actor that used the style of Charles Bronson and Clint Eastwood associated to great fight choreography and violence. Unless you wanted to be confronted with this start of all evil. If the police force is corrupt and the C.
He seems more of an everyman with a real toughness to him. The rest of his movies are strictly average or below, and he has been responsible for some real crapsters, like Ticker and On Deadly Ground. I love the gritty urban feel of the movie. He starts with the pain right away in a nifty scene that recalls 1985's Underatted Chuck Norris Actioner Code of Silence. It was the only one where he focuses mainly on his outstanding Aikido ability. This was an amazing beginning for Steven Seagal. Nico is a narcotics cop who can't swallow his pride.
Well, you're not above mine! His stern face shows that he is a hard man, with a burden on his shoulders and an obligation to save his society as well as his family from an ailment that abounds everywhere. He smashes crack dealers' faces into their cocaine mirrors, and wiretaps bad guys' phones without asking for permission. In a fight, I'd like to have him on my side, most definitely. His Aikido skills provide the main source of exhilarating entertainment of the movie. It is therefore up to Toscani Seagal to take on a 'poetic license' of sorts and bring the transgressors back to justice. For these reasons, I give this movie a 6 out of 10, but as for watching it, I have watched it over ten times.
It's the sudden escalation of violence that they unepectedly initiate. Urban Justice and Pistol Whipped come fairly close though. He plays Nico, a principled maverick cop who takes no smelly brown stuff from anybody. This movie was low budget, yet a brilliant fresh story with plenty of action. Occasionally the digitization process introduces transcription errors or other problems. This movie was written by him and director Andrew Davis.
It may not be great, but it sure is fun. Unlike those thugs there, the real deal were inside law enforcement, and that's where the fun begins. Most would focus on the action elements. Director Andrew Davis makes good use of his hometown Chicago's locations. Nothing but bone breaking, limb popping, hand lopping, bruise making and bull crap spewing ultra violence from Steven Seagal.
You can see that he is learned in Aikido and Jujutsu. When Nico and Jacks investigate a drug traffic operation, they arrest the gang of the drug dealer Tony Salvano Daniel Faraldo but they find that they are smuggling the plastic explosive C4 instead. I love how he never gets scared and just beats on baddies by breaking their bones. Toscani makes a big drug bust, and discovers some plans to kill a senator who can't be bought out. Important also is the scene in which his wife Sharon Stone pleads with him. They may look and speak a bit differently from one another, but those are accidents, not essences. When the dealers that Nico arrested are suddenly let out of police custody, a whirlwind of events occurs leading to Nico being asked to leave the police force.
Come to think of it, I imagine it's pretty easy to banter with Pam Grier. It's one of his better ones! Even when he walks, he's a still photograph. Rogers, however, cogently points out in his commentary, that Seagal portrays a double-edged character. I hadn't seen this movie in years, and was anxious to watch it again. The rest of the supporting cast is just as good. This was Steven Seagal's best movie. The true auteur of this nonsense appears not to be the director, Andrew Davis, but Mr.
The action there was almost non-stop, I liked the part where one of the thugs had a machete, that was used against him, that person ended up sliced and diced Seagal style. Overall this is a good fun movie. Although I didn't care for Sharon Stone's acting in the film she seemed to be too much of a weakwilled whiner, as opposed to her later films , Steven Seagal and Pam Grier were excellent as the main heroes. Seagal can really do that. Acting wise, Seagal actually delivers here. The script made you watch the movie even if no one was getting shot on screen. Under Siege was a fun movie and great but had very little in the way of fights, since then his films have been poor and he hasn't worked with as good directors in terms of action.
