I have just watched this on Amazon Prime Instant Video.

What Steven Seagal needs to do is make films to this standard and above minimum. Instead of making loads of low budget direct to dvd films which vary widely in quality is only make one film a year and combine all the budgets and make a film with a decent budget. That way he'd get better script writers and directors, actors etc.
I've always followed his career but his later efforts have been poor, bad hair, bad wardrobe, bad dialogue, bad dubbing, bad body doubles the list goes on. He is the ultimate in kicking the crap out of the bad guys and I want him to make decent films.

I feel as though he could do so much better.

Here he has. A Good Man is definitely one of his better efforts and I enjoyed it, I wasn't once bored. There was a lot to like about it. I'd give it 3.0 out of 5.0. Having Tzi Ma in it was good and upped the quality of the production. For a change the majority of the acting was better and overall it was better than anything he has done of late. The actors who played cops weren't very good though! I liked the Sascha character, the actor who played him fitted the role well. He was a decent movie fighter. The fights in general were well done and I liked Stevens performanance in it and there wasn't too much stupid dialogue.The story wasnt disjointed and actually made sense and wasn't a mess. The music was quite good as well and suited the movie. When Steven puts more effort in he's still got it. The ending with Alexander and Lena was understandable but wasn't really necessary, they could have quite easily left that out.

In conclusion we've seen this type of movie many times before, good guy gets bad guys etc, a little cliche but done with more effort this time and was enjoyable entertainment. I think all the elements came together for this straight to DVD cheaply and for a change it turned out to be an enjoyable action thriller. Watch it for free on Prime.

There is nothing like a Steven Seagal film except another Steven Seagal film. In this film Seagal introduces himself through some philosophical dialogue to let us know how deep and complex he is, unlike his movies. He plays Alexander, the "White Ghost" a mercenary out to kill arms dealer Chen (Tzi Ma). After an unsuccessful attempt in "Dagestan," Seagal is in an unnamed Eastern European nation (Bucharest, Romania) living next door to a beautiful girl Lena (Iulia Verdes) who happens to be the sister of Russian mafia strong arm collector (Victor Webster). Seagal lives a low key life as the building super by day.... Bodies of the Russian mafia litter the street with limbs cut off and oriental symbols drawn by them...Oh who could be doing that?

The plot is straight forward, except for that one thing we see coming. Seagal goes after the bad guys while attempting to save the girl and her sister too. Grindhouse style action, music, and fast speed fighting for Seagal. Some scenes are poorly dubbed, others use English subtitles when they speak English for emphasis (?) and sometimes they speak Russian with no subtitles. They shouldn't allow drinking in the editing room.

4 stars on the Seagal scale.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, stripper nudity. An odd bar where some strippers wear pasties and some do not.

So, there I was ready to give The Lord of Seagal's 2014 epic (using that term in its loosest form) 'A Good Man' a less than favorable review when I finally twigged: These movies are review proof. Existing as existential works of art rather than entertainment, the good Lord could be seen as a cypher for deep, mythological thought and contemplation. Or, he could be a middled aged fat bloke with stuck on hair. Your call.

Anyhoo, on with the show: Alexander (The Lord, this time with added gnarly beard trimmings) is the leader of a covert operation in Dagestan, where one of his targets - a villainous fellow by the name of Mr. Chen (Tzi Ma) escapes, resulting in the death of Alexander's team. Bereft, he returns to Eastern Europe where he strikes up a relationship with neighbour Lena and her younger sister Mya in his apartment building. Lena's brother Sasha (a good Victor Webster) is in over his head working for a local mafia boss in order to pay off his father’s debt which raises the interest of our rotund avenger - high kicking those nasty mafia fella's into next week. Obviously, all of this totally unconnected storyline dovetails into Mr Chen being behind the mafia goons, which whips The Lord into supersonic action (well, he walks right past Burger King), leading to a fateful showdown between the two at the films climax.

To be honest, this isn't gonna win anyone awards. It hardly registers as a full feature, but for the life of me - I can't hate it. The Lord has gone from being a serious action contender to simply turning up and mumbling strange gobs of exposition and philosophical dialogue between punching bad guys in the head and dating girls just out of high school.

Good, right up to the last 1 minute, where the ending with The Good Man and the Bar Girl made no sense at all. Without spoiling it, it went against logic and someone must have had a stroke in writing the last few lines of the script. However, 99.9 per cent of the movie was darn good and overall I give it four stars.
