Editors Note
Note Years after leaving behind a life as a Russian mobster, crime novelist Ruslan Drachev (Steven Seagal) returns to his idyllic home one day to discover that his daughter in engaged to marry his old enemy. In the blink of an eye, Drachev?s deadly past comes crashing back, and his once-safe family is now at the mercy of a viciously transgressive force. However, as his criminal ex-cohorts will soon be reminded, Seagal?s Ruslan Drachev is the most formidable antihero of the iconic aikido master?s bone-crunching oeuvre since the days of MARKED FOR DEATH and OUT FOR JUSTICE. Seagal is truly back in action and driven to kill.

ReviewSource Movie House Commentary
Review The basic premise of the film is a fine fit for the Seagal formula, the cinematography is actually quite good, and the storyline looks pretty good on paper, but the execution of the film is ham-fisted. The fundamental problem is that the action scenes are clumsy. Seagal has started to gain weight again after keeping his bulk under control for a few years, and he now looks bigger than ever. So he's a 58-year-old fat man, and that's really not the ideal job description for a martial arts hero. His hand-to-hand scenes are mostly shot in close-up from the chest up, and are typically shot into Seagal's face rather than from the side, as if looking over the shoulder of the baddies. As a result, the audience can usually see only Seagal's chest, head, and hands, as well as the opponents' hands. This technique disguises Seagal's age and bulk. If you are willing to accept the use of that obvious crutch, Seagal doesn't look bad in the scenes. It may be a trick caused by creative editing and speed-ups, but the Plump Paladin still seems to have fast and dextrous hands. Of course he must get a lot of chances to keep his hands nimble, judging from the number of Snickers Bars he must have to unwrap every day to get that big.
