There are better movies to watch. Don't waste your time.

There is something very creepy about Mr Segal's character being attracted to the young lead actresses character and she with him. One is 64 and the other is 29. I know it can happen but it is just unbelievable as portrayed in this film, and once there is one daft strand, the rest of the film falls and fails. This could have been a half decent film but the dialogue is poor, the acting wooden and the action scenes poor. The goodies recover from violent beatings far too easily, and the baddies always lose quickly. Why are the baddies always such poor shots. I am a fan of Mr Seagal but this film lets him down, as a few others have and I just wish he would stop making them.

A refreshing change for Seagal

A man known only as Alexander (Seagal) is a former Special Ops soldier. After a mission doesn't go as planned, Alexander goes "off the grid" - WAY off the grid as a handyman in a Romanian apartment building. After living life under the radar for a while, he becomes mixed up in a mob war between Russian and Chinese gangsters. After becoming friendly with his next-door neighbor Lena (Verdes), he becomes especially mad when her daughter Mya (Nicolaescu) is kidnapped by the super-evil baddie Mr. Chen (Ma). Alexander then teams up with a fighter named Sasha (Webster) and, after years of living a violence-free life underground, goes into full battle mode to save Mya and perhaps redeem his soul. But will it be at the cost of losing his status as A GOOD MAN? Let us see...

We finally have some good news to report on the Seagal front. We actually liked A Good Man, and we believe it's his best effort since Urban Justice (2007). The vibe is quite different from the latter movie of seven years previous, as we're now deep into Seagal's Eastern European DTV phase, and he's a long way from beating up homies in the hood. One of the main reasons we can be so positive towards the movie is that Seagal is not a sadistic torturer this time out; while calling him "likable" is just a teensy bit of a bridge too far, this is the closest he's come in years, and we give him props for that. His character is well-suited for the project, a sort of wise and weary veteran who has seen it all, but who can still fight when need be. It doesn't call for him to be vicious, belligerent and brutal, which made for a refreshing change.

While the voice doubles and stand-ins are still here, they seem less egregious because we were reasonably entertained by the movie as a whole. Plus, they're now an indelible part of the Seagal experience, so you might as well sit back and enjoy them. Additionally in the win column, he's surrounded by some quality on-screen talent: Victor Webster has some nice fighting moves and a good screen presence. He was last seen (by us at least) in the silly Gangland (2001), and makes a nice foil for Seagal, just as Byron Mann did in Absolution (2015). Perhaps not coincidentally, that was also co-written and directed by Keoni Waxman, who seems to have hit upon a good formula for the Seagal vehicle. Tzi Ma is also noteworthy as the philosophical baddie.

As we've noted time and again, oftentimes the little kid in the action movie steals the show, and the girl who plays Mya was one of the better attributes here. You can see why  Alexander wants to save her - she's not annoying like a lot of on screen kids. The movie also tries to be topical, with Islamic terrorists and drone strikes at the outset of the proceedings detailing the former life of Alexander. Whether it's normal or not to have a 62-year-old man in the field with all the young bucks, we don't know. We'll have to consult our team of military experts. The fight scenes have some cool moments and the whole outing is not quite as stupid and brain-numbing as you might think it would be.

We're truly hoping Seagal and his behind the scenes bros (he calls a lot of people "bro" in the movie, by the by) go more in this direction in the future. We hope now, after a lot of unnecessary dumbness in years past, he's finally found his niche.

Great Victor Webster film

This movie should have starred Victor Webster with special guest star Steven Seagal. Victor was is most of the fight scenes and did most of the better acting. Steven did his typical F word for everything and the final battle so he could be the hero. The plot was very lame and I don't think the little girl should have been so OK with all the blood and fighting. It would make more sense that the females were Sasha's wife and daughter, not siblings. That was a weird part of the story. Plus the love interest between Alexander and Lena was just wrong on so many different level and I think she was young enough to be his daughter. Gross!!! All in all this was a great Victor Webster movie. Not sure it should have given top billing to Steven Seagal, but he is the better known actor, so I understand why.
