Post your review of Fire Down Below here.
Webmaster FU&D! said:Steven Seagal stars as an EPA Agent Jack Taggert in the outback of Middle America in his latest movie. Everything, from the 2.35:1 framing to the guest musicians, tries to set this movie up as a large-scale production - something it sadly is not.
The storyline is alright, if you buy into Seagal's whole pro-environment deal. There are some good fight scenes, but, unfortunately, I have say that quite a few of them seem "fast-forwarded". That's right, speeded up to insure that the Great One looks as fast as he did ten years ago, which is really not necessary.
It ends up looking faked and contrived and I now have a harder time than ever of convincing my Seagal-doubting friends that he is, truly, a great master. The one thing that this movie establishes, is that Seagal can play a caring, quiet, friendly guy who kicks ass pretty well - but that this movie could have worked with any action star.
It's worth seeing, but don't be like me and buy it on laserdisc.
