Our Score
In this Memphis-set barrel-scraper, Steven Seagal delivers an excruciating performance as a tough detective on the hunt for two rather dull serial killers. With a weird southern accent and barely any expression, he lumbers through an unsatisfying mishmash of sub-Se7en crime thriller clich├ęs, stereotypes and laughable dialogue. But though Seagal's self-penned script is underdeveloped and over-convenient rubbish, it's nowhere near as bad as the appalling direction and editing. Jittery camerawork, excessive use of the jump cut and pointless repeat shots make the protracted fist-fights and generally unrealistic action sequences feel clumsy and tedious, while the rushed climax simply isn't worth the wait.

Summary

A serial killer has the people of Memphis city living in fear of their lives, until a renowned homicide detective is assigned the task of bringing his reign of terror to an end. He also has to contend with a second homicidal maniac, as well as an FBI agent who does not approve of his brutal methods. Action thriller, starring Steven Seagal, Holly Elissa Dignard and Chris Thomas King.
