Review

Rating: 1 out of 5.

The increasingly irrelevant Steven Seagal returns to his urban action roots on his home turf, but the change of scene and scenery provides no measurable increase in quality - this is another lacklustre effort, sunk by a predictable script and a lazy performance by the star. Seagal plays (inevitably) a lethal stranger who arrives in LA to discover the truth about the death of his policeman son (Cory Hart), the apparent victim of a drive-by shooting. However, he soon discovers that his boy's demise is linked to a squad of corrupt cops. While there are few nifty fight sequences, Seagal's lack of mobility is an embarrassment and the only time the film comes to life is when Eddie Griffin is on screen; the comic actor is surprisingly effective as a vicious gang boss.
