The movie that turned Steven Seagal into a star. And, well, you can easily see why.

Unfortunately, it's also one of those movies that you either watched back in the days, or... you see, it's a BAD movie. Very, VERY bad movie. Terrible writing, terrible acting, cheesy action and literally not a single scene to make it to stand out. Seriously, it's generic as read more
