Product Description

Product Description

Get ready for some full-throttle martial-arts action, Seagal style. Furiously paced and visually striking, Marked for Death pulls no punches and shows Steven Seagal at his bone-busting, head-cracking best. Burned-out after losing his partner on the job, Drug Enforcement Agent John Hatcher (Seagal) hopes to find some calm and serenity by returning to his hometown. But things at home have changed--and not for the better. Jamaican drug lords, led by a black-magic high priest named Screwface (Basil Wallace), have completely infiltrated the small town. But this gang soon learns that they’ve met their match in Hatcher…and all the mystical voodoo in the world won’t be enough to stop his wrath.

From Amazon.co.uk

The glowering brutality that is aikido head-banger Steven Seagal's substitute for a star persona at least gives us a rancid taste of authenticity in Marked for Death, a cookie-cutter action picture. This glum lug seems really to enjoy hurting people; he snaps limbs and shatters noses with visible relish. Pitted against a gang of Jamaican gangsters who invade his (white ethnic) Chicago neighbourhood and threaten his family, retired DEA agent John Hatcher sets out to solve the case with robotic efficiency, kicking butt in just about every scene. Not quite as pudgy in this 1990 outing as he became a few films later, Seagal looks like the genuine, lethal article in the fight sequences but like a hopeless amateur when he tries to act his way out of the waterlogged-paper-bag of a script. So what else is new? The one bright spot here is Basil Wallace, a mostly unsung actor who throws himself into the showy role of the Rasta gang-boss Screwface, a garishly scarred psycho with piercing ice-blue eyes. --David Chute, Amazon.com --This text refers to the DVD edition.

THE BBFC HAVE CUT IT TO PEICES!!! Don't even bother buying it. Get the NTSC region 1 version or a Dutch import. The fight scenes are heavily cut and really, it ruins the whole film and is very evident - and I mean they will cut out an Aikedo arm break or a knife slash or stab or sometimes an entire fight with an individual. The BBFC are insane choppers of movies even intended for adults of 18 and over.
THEY are the ones who need to be censored!!!

At last, this classic film gets the release it deserves: full length, uncut and hi-def! And the good news is, I can confirm this US import is a region free Bluray!!!

If you're reading this, chances are you've already seen Marked For Death about a hundred times and know it's not only Segal's finest film, but just a great action flick in its own right. If you haven't seen it - watch it!

All the usual Steve Segal Akido and undercover badass is here - but mixed in with it is a theme of voodoo, black magic and Jamaican Yardies, which makes the film immensely enjoyable to watch.

This film spawned some of the greatest lines ever committed to film and one of cinema's most terrifying villains in the shape of Screw Face, played brilliantly by one Basil Wallace.

Scene after scene is totally incredible, whether its a fight scene with Segal or Basil delivering a captivating, spooky and terrifying performance. And there are so many brilliant monologues and one liners that vocal samples taken from this film virtually kept the Drum and Bass and Jungle scenes alive in the 90s.

Great fun, brilliant acting, incredible fight scenes, a non nonsense story, a great twist and non-stop action - what more do you want? Screw Face is mesmerising to watch and even More so in HD, so if you're a fan of the film buy this region free Bluray now. It's an absolute classic!!!

Until your copy arrives in the post here's a few of the best lines to refresh your memory and keep you going:
"E'ry body wan' go heaven... nu'body wan' dead!"
"Who kill 'im, de white boy Hatcha?"
"If a man commit a crime against you - he must be paid back, a t'ousand times!"
"Screw Face give me a t'ousand deaths worse that you..."
"You a do tha selling...

Marked for Death is a bit of an anomaly in the early, golden-age of Seagal cinematic rampages. The man was virtually owned by Warner, but M4D was released by Twentieth Century Fox. As his third big screen movie, it's not really THAT much different from the rest of the vintage. Once more he's out for revenge/justice, and is hard to kill and above the law as he does so.

Seagal plays John Hatcher, a ruthless DEA agent who lives the life of killing/maiming absolutely everything and everyone in sight. There's virtually no one he hasn't killed. Tired of making death a living he retires to the cozy, strictly white and middle-class Lincoln Heights suburb of Chicago. Upon arriving home he greets all his old pals, and his mother who appears to be Italian or Spanish (another lame attempt by Seagal to quietly imply that he's got some mysterious roots when in reality he's Steve Seigel, an Irish-Jew). It's not all happiness and handshakes though, as the terrifying Jamaican Voodoo Posse, run by Abu Qua High Priest madman Screwface, have infiltrated Chicago and are dealing death to schoolkids.

Irie, Irie.

Hatcher wants nothing to do with it, and would rather just mind his own business despite the protest of best friend Max (a mostly wasted, but brilliant as always, Keith David). But after a couple of close encounters Hatcher just can't help himself and returns to the business of killing absolutely everyone and everything in sight.

Basil Wallace, as Screwface (and Screwface), is honestly one of the most enigmatic, mesmerizing, and downright weirdest movie villains of the 90s. He's really, really out there. I recommend watching this with the subtitles on as you'll have absolutely no idea what the Jamaicans are saying.

Remember Steven Seagal at his very best? well okay that's pushing it some but you know when those films first came out and he was first on the scene of the action film era. This film is really very good and a thoroughly good watch on a Saturday night and some how one that my husband and I had missed all those years back which we found on Amazon Prime films. After seeing it we felt we wanted to add it to our collection so found it cheap enough from this supplier. The usual story line of course, this guy trying to stay out of trouble until they pick on his family and then that's it, the beast is unleashed and off he goes to get revenge and puts them baddies in their place. Loads of action, fighting and broken limbs etc. the same old same old really but it is full and was at a time when Mr Seagal was at his prime. If you are wanting a good old fashioned all action, rubbish story line but the good guy gets the bad guys film, go for it you can't go wrong really!
