Hard To Kill

"Seagal doesn't die, so why bother?"
1 stars


Hard To Watch is more like it.

This is Steven Seagal before he porked up, but even then (1990) he was one of the least active action stars. He's the guy who wouldn't chase after the bad guys, he'd let them attack him and THEN he'd kick their ass.

Seagal gives new meaning to wooden acting. The guys is as blank as a piece of paper. No emotion, no acting. He just sort of stands their with his pinched eyes and baby face, and sort of mumbles his lines like a cross between a spaghetti-Western Clint Eastwood and Mickey Rourke.

An action movie minus the action with a Dougboy as the hero. I'll pass.

It's got three words in the title. All 3-worded Seagal titles blow. Only Under Siege was good. Note that it had two words.
