Stallone´s "The Specialist" and Snipes "Drop Zone" were not huge hits.

His love for the environment and his increasing weight destroyed his career. He was not able to keep his weight. It started with "Under Siege 2".
I think it was his ego and he lost his passion for filmmaking. Just check out the interview with the director of Fire Down Below.

I think he'd still be with them now?
He should have followed up Under Siege with either 'Blood On The Moon' (which still could have incorperated 'aikido' into it's plot of man vs modern day pirates, whilst still offering it's star a slight change of pace) or 'The Specialist' or 'Drop Zone' (both of which he was linked to at the time)
Wasn't 'Blood On the Moon' supposed to be about a mercenary helping monks flee to Tibet to escape the
Chinese who were destroying their Temples and massacring the monks?
Took place in the 1800's I think...

I thought it was more of a modern action movie (similar to the 1988 Gary Busey movie 'Act Of Piracy') that's if the promo poster is anything to go by?

However, rerwrites (especially with Seagal) are common....can anyone remember when 'Shadow Man' was originally intended as WWII drama about a doctor (entitled 'Shadows Of The Sun', I think?) ;)

I really would like to hear something of or do an interview with director Jeff King, who made Driven To Kill and Kill Switch with Seagal. I am especially interested in what he has to say about Kill Switch, because that was shot as a totally different movie. Avi Lerner took that out of his (and Stevens) hands en butchered it.

I will try to find a way to contact him and ask him if he is willing to do it.

Does someone know how or where to contact Jeff King? I can't find anything (only his instagram and twitter but there is no possibility to send him a private message on both platforms).

I prefer 'PREDATOR 2' over the original....But it would have been great to see Seagal in this (given that this was in the same year and with the same studio that gave us 'MARKED FOR DEATH'.....The fight scenes would have been insane!)
The predator wouldn't have stood a chance? :D
Yes liked Predator 2, didn't understand why so many people didn't. I remember a version i saw recorded from Sky TV years ago not long after release with lots more gore and violence than the one that is available today.
