1,000 volts from that defibrillator will do it everytime!
Dragon Squad is now on sale at CD-Wow : http://www10.cd-wow.com/detail_results_2.php?product_code=256944
Only £7.99 for the two disc set too.
Seagal was the executive producer on this and it's actually a half-decent movie, although it got quite the critical drubbing from Hong Kong film critics, which is understandable since it has some really chaotic camera work and spotty acting but the action is top notch though.
I picked this up a while back from cd-wow. I finally watched it last night. Steven Seagal is listed in the credits.
I thought this was not too bad, the action was very good and well shot. The only thing i thought was strange was they were all crack snipers, shots, etc, but when they were having a shoot out there were thousands of shots being fired, but no-one getting shot.
A lot of people criticize Steven Seagal's size, but look at Sammo Hung. He is a big guy, but moves very fast and gives great performances. I have seen him recently in SPL and also Dragon Squad and he has given great performances in both.
Yeah, I feel the movie is underrated, I would love to see a sequel but given the film's poor box office reception, I doubt it will, I think it's wonderful to see Steven attaching his name to foreign movies, wonder if he's seen it...
no one criticizes Sammo Hung's size because he doesn't use a stunt double to get out of cars, walk down the street, go up stairs, etc. he does his own crazy stunts where he jumps out of windows and climbs up walls
IT PEEs WHEN I BURN
I just manage to catch this movie on dvd, quite good.
A very belated response to the topic, but Seagal's involvement in the movie is mentioned in an HKCinemagic interview with Bey Logan: http://www.hkcinemagic.com/en/page.asp?aid=169&page=2
Thanks, always wondered what his involvement was for the movie. Would have been good to see him in a HK production alongside the likes of Jet Li, Donnie Yen, Jackie Chan, etc.
