I and my work colleagues decided a while ago to start 'Steven Seagal' nights after work, in which we'd watch some of his movies to have a laugh. We started with Exit Wounds (which I own anyway, as a DMX fan) and one we rented: Belly of the Beast.
I can honestly say now, that I have never laughed so hard whilst watching a film. This is at once, the funniest and most ridiculous film I have ever seen, but is all the better for it. It defines the phrase 'so bad it's good', and is guaranteed to have even the most cynical movie watcher sniggering.
No one can take Seagal as a serious actor, apart from maybe in 'Nico', but here even he manages to out-act the majority of the cast. The plot, dialogue and action scenes are purely ridiculous, but to such an extent that you cannot help but enjoy it. Lines such as 'Next time, it is you that will be the apple' will stay in your mind long after you watch this movie, and scenes such as the one in which the mysterious woman reveals a hidden message using water, will bring a smile to your face every time you think about them.
To sum it up, this film is great, in an absolutely terrible way. It has everything you could want; Badly edited fight scenes in which no attempt is made to disguise Seagal's body double, ninjas with swords, monks in a wind tunnel, nudity and unknown actors desperately trying to break into the industry.
Don't get me wrong, although this is an awful film, it is still immensely entertaining and has found a place in my heart. Suffice to say that we no longer just have Steven Seagal nights, we have Belly of the Beast nights! Highly recommended viewing.

Despite the rather naff title of this latest Steven Segal movie it is a belter.After three very lack luster movies this one shines through.Seagal proves he still has what it takes and kicks ass all the way through this brilliant movie.It centres around the daughter of a US Senator who has been kidnapped.Along with Seagal's screen daughter by a group of terrorists.The whole piece is fast paced well told with karate high kicks all the way.It also touches on Budhist beliefs with some magic added to up the ante.
There are some lovely girls and even a girl who turns out to be a man who Seagal dispatches.As a seagal fan this was a must but even non fans will love this movie.

Back in the day when this flick was released, we action fans were treading on dodgy ground - where would the great Lord Steven of Seagal be taking us with these low rent direct to video offerings? They were a long way from the heady, mega budget heights of 'Out for Justice' or 'Under Siege' and to be honest, his previous forays into small screen fodder (Cough * The Foreigner* Cough) hadn't set the world on fire... but then outta nowhere came this minor miracle. Even the title was awesome. In an almost self mocking kinda way...

... Anyway! The Lord stars as Jake Hopper, a retired CIA operative mourning the loss of his late wife in an idyllic solitude - keeping his hand in by doing the odd piece of business for and ex-agency friend. When said buddy arrives to inform him that his daughter Jessica (Sara Malakul Lane) has been kidnapped by a terrorist group, Abu Karaf whilst holidaying in Thailand - our man takes it upon himself to apply his particular set of skills 'Taken stylee' and decimate anyone who's involved in her capture. Sure he takes his time and seemingly spends a large portion of the movie in strip clubs or punching folk, but hey? We know he will save her. At some point. When he's ready. Erm... With Hopper on firm vigilante duty, the CIA are on his case and he's forced to hook up with old sparring partner Sunti (an excellent Byron Mann) who aids him in a cool 'Lethal Weapon' style buddy movie trope as they both shoot, kick, smash and generally destroy half of Thailand with enough blood and bullets to quench the thirst of even the most jaded action junkie...

When I first rented this film I wasn't expecting much, I usually rent Steven Seagal films just to laugh at Steven Seagal himself This was no exception, but I HAD to buy this film afterwoods.
There obviously hasn't been any attempt at coming up with an interesting story, its just an excuse to have massive gun fights and punch ups, which in my opinion is what Steven Seagal is best at anyway.
To me Steven Seagal is taking the micky out of himself in this film. It has all the stereotypical elements of his past films such as ridiculous odds of survival and exaggerated action scenes (what I find the most funny is when Steven Seagal dives through the wall of a train in slow motion on to a conveniently placed wooden pallet, constantly shooting for about 5 minutes without a single reload).
I think the fight scenes are great, but its not just Aikido he's using here which means more variety.
If you like Steven Seagal, buy this film, just buy it.
