Steven Seagal has never been the most expressive actor, but here he exceeds his previous efforts by delivering a performance so bland it barely registers. Not that he's helped by the lame storyline, in which he plays a medically retired cop who becomes the bodyguard of a rich old pal's adult daughter after she's nearly kidnapped. Unconvincing characters and a surprising lack of action add to the overall dullness, leaving it to the laughable dialogue to fitfully entertain. As for Seagal's trademark moves, they've been reduced to pathetic schoolyard-style slapping and a few mediocre knife-throws, which make the supposedly big fight-climax a particular letdown. Hilarious end scene though.

Plot Summary

Action thriller starring Steven Seagal as a cop who's double-crossed by his partner and then relieved from duty. But a new opportunity presents itself when an old friend hires him to protect his daughter.
