Review

Our Score
This was Steven Seagal's action debut and, despite his obvious limitations as an actor, his rock-fisted martial arts style made it a massive video hit and paved the way for his lengthy career in similar biff-em-ups for the next ten years. He's a cop whose haul from a drug bust is suddenly stolen from under his nose by pushy FBI men for complex, and possibly criminal, reasons. Providing the actual acting talent are rejuvenated blaxploitation star Pam Grier, Sharon Stone and villainous 1980s video favourite Henry Silva.

Summary

A tough, unorthodox cop with martial arts skills uncovers a complex multi-level conspiracy involving the CIA, a drugs cartel and a deep seam of government corruption - and vows to bring the culprits to justice. Thriller, starring Steven Seagal, Pam Grier, Henry Silva and Sharon Stone.
