Our Score
Sandwiched between his eco-warrior outings On Deadly Ground and Fire Down Below, this action thriller has Steven Seagal going back to the no-brainer fare that made his name. It's a partial success, but ultimately lacks the slick thrills of his early films thanks to John Gray's unexceptional direction. Here, the murky government past of Seagal's new-age cop comes back to haunt him as he pursues a serial killer. Keenen Ivory Wayans provides a lively foil as his partner, but Brian Cox, as Seagal's former boss, only succeeds in butchering an American accent again.


New York homicide detective Jack Cole travels to Los Angeles to help solve a series of murders where the victims are crucified. However, when Cole's ex-wife is killed, he becomes the prime suspect. Action thriller, starring Steven Seagal, Keenen Ivory Wayans, Bob Gunton, Brian Cox and Michelle Johnson.
