Years from now when humanity has died out and all that's left are cockroaches, one thing will remain forever constant: And that thing is a man. Not just any man mind - but the mighty lord himself, Sir Steven of Seagal. And this 1990 ditty is one of the reasons. Let's find out why: Following the death of his partner in a drug bust gone awry, hot headed and all round awesome drug enforcement agent John Hatcher (a too cool for skool Steven Seagal) returns home to seek sanctuary with family and friends. Hooking up with old pal and now high school football coach Max (Keith David, delivering macho lines like there's no tomorrow) the two men are unwittingly drawn into a battle with local drug lords when they put a hit on Hatcher's family. Obviously, The Lord isn't gonna take things lying down and within no time at all is unleashing his inner lunatic by beating, shooting and generally messing up an assortment of dastardly villains with a clear dedication to decimation right up to the point where he faces off against head honcho 'Screwface' (a suitably brilliant Basil Wallace) in a sword swooshing showdown that has to be seen to be believed.

This movie was, and still is the aces. From director Dwight ('Halloween 4', 'Rapid Fire') Little's fluid direction that leaves no action cliche pass by to Michael Grais & Mark Victor's stupidly vibrant screenplay - the whole endeavor is an action fan's dream come true: The Lord is on fine form and commands the screen with enough macho vitriol to make John Wayne wee his leathery trousers, ably supported by an expletive spouting Keith David who could earn himself his own spin off - even the supporting players manage to keep one's attention. This ones got it all and sits only second place to The Lord's peerless 'Out for Justice' in the so awesome it will probably hurt stakes.

Fox's UK Blu-Ray release sports a pretty jazzy (yeah, I just wrote jazzy) transfer with vibrant audio - which ticks my particular boxes as each punch and gunshot is suitably loud and tingly! This is a solid 4-star movie with The Lord at the height of his pony-tailed powers - they really don't make 'em like this anymore. Don't bother renting - go straight to buy.

Picture quality is fine but the sound is a bit 'floaty' as the dialogue is badly panned and will teeter between the left channel to the right channel. This problem is exacerbated if you watch with headphones.

This is the Dutch uncut version of this movie that contains all the brutal bone breaking unarmed combat scenes that were cut in the uk.the film itself is a revenge story ( nothing new ) but its still an enjoyable action movie from the days that Seagal was worth watching.

An absolute good old fashioned breaking bones and true Steven Seagal classic. A must watch.
