People I Like no. 5: Steven Seagal

If you’ve read this site before, you’ll probably be able to gather that I’m a bit of a fan of Steven Seagal.  Well ‘bit’ is a sodding understatement – I can’t get enough of him and his films.  Well, actually, that’s a lie – his new films are shit.  But we’ll get to that later.  Firstly, let’s get down to business:
Above the Law (Nico) – Seagal’s first film, and he’s already the central character, mainly because one of his aikido pupils (the Hollywood agent Michael Ovitz) decided that Seagal deserved to be in movies.

THANK YOU MICHAEL OVITZ – I AM FOREVER IN YOUR DEBT.

Above the Law concerns a tough (obviously) vice cop getting mixed up with Henry Silva’s corrupt CIA agent.  Can’t really be bothered to go into much more detail, but Steven Seagal beats up a great many people in this film and therefore it is good. (more…)

You’ve outdone yourselves this time.

More of the same please.

Winner winner chicken dinner.

If by now you hadn’t noticed, I thought 22 Bullets was downright sexually explosive in every possible way – this film was what those willy workout barbell things you get from shit joke shops were made for.

Yes, I was thoroughly pleased with everyone who was involved in making 22 Bullets and would like to take them out for a drink sometime.*

22 Bullets is the latest film by Europacorp, Luc Besson’s production company – you know, the one that can literally do no wrong (Kiss of the Dragon (18, amazing), High Tension (18, bloody good), Unleashed (18, tent-producing) and Taken (18, somebody help me there’s blood spraying from my eyes)).  But it’s Taken that is of most interest here, mainly because it’s by THE SAME PRODUCERS – uh oh!  But actually, they are quite similar, which can only be a good thing, seeing as Taken was one of the best films of 2008.
