Well I am not sure if I am as excited as everyone else about this Preview Clip. Seagal seems more healthy than say in Out For A Kill and he moves with more speed but I wouldn’t quite call this good. If perhaps Donnie Yen remained as a choreographer things would be different. This fight reminded me of the one in Exit Wounds when he fought those punks except that one was about ten times better. I think in the end I will probably rate the movie as Craig did. This is not a bad fight, and who knows the rest might be good as well, but this is still miles away from those long fights in Out For Justice or Hard To Kill. I think fifteen seconds of Steven fighting is a waste. He is capable of more.

Who knows? The possibilities of myself actually seeing this movie are better now that I seen that clip. Although I must agree with other folks. Due to the reviews I've read and the clip I've seen this is probably won't be as good as any of his theatrical releases.

WOW! This is the Steven we know! It seems to be a good movie and I like when Steven fight instead of using so many weopons.
Craig, please answer me some questions:
You have seen the film, are there many fight scenes?
Can you compare the film with another Seagal film?
Is there much action and many explosions?
Is it a exciting movie or boring movie?
Your rating?

Hi, Raf. :) Craig's not here every day, but maybe this will help answer your questions. It's his review of Into the Sun, which was posted in the Movie Reviews sub-forum of the Movies section. Here's the direct link to that thread, which includes reviews by others, as well. Hope this helps. :) Although you may not be too excited by it. :D

Well after getting my hands on a preview copy here's my thought on the movie:

Action:
Steven Seagal looks in the best shape he's been in since Exit Wounds. The action fight sequences unfortunately were few and far between. There was a fight at the mall that was superb, in my opinion this was great, but it was over too soon. This was really the only time where he truly showed off his hard to hand combat moves as well as his Aikido throws. The other fights later on were mainly sword based although there were a few punches. ;) No care chases at all. :( The movie was certainly more plot based than we are used to for a Steven Seagal movie.

Characters:
Steven Seagal get's a partner in this movie, but he is pretty much under-used. There's a few funny moments between them. The other characters are pretty poor too. William Atherton as the boss doesn't seem to interested in his role and the other Chinese and Japanese stars don't improve the movie much either. I sure miss the days when Steven Seagal made movies with a decent support cast.

Soundtrack:
The radio stations and restaurants in Tokyo must all be tuned in to Steven Seagal FM, everywhere he went his music was playing - i heard a few of his tunes from 'Songs From The Crystal Cave' playing through the film. Overall i counted at least three of his songs including the credits song. The soundtrack was good though. :)

Direction:
The movie begins with an action sequence in the jungle, which is not very well done. The opening credits begin and then some graphic work happens to show the movie is in Tokyo. When i saw this is reminded me other Michael Oblowitz's work in 'Out For A Kill' and i thought the worst, but after that panic it was certainly well directed. Good job mink. :)

Overall:
Pretty disappointing, i was expecting much more for a budget of $35 million, i don't know where all this money was used as it seems rather excessive considering not much was blown up. It is certainly a better movie than 'Out For A Kill' and 'The Foreigner', but it is not better than 'Belly Of The Beast' and nowhere near as good as his earlier work. :( For a direct to video effort it is certainly above average though. :) I must admit i pretty much agree with the review form 'Ain't It Cool'.

Rating:
2 / 5

If i think of more later i will add to the review.
