Detective Jacob Stillwell (Steven Seagal) is one of the most celebrated homicide detectives in the country. His brutal delivery of street justice is legendary among the men and women of law enforcement. But on this latest case, he may have finally met his match Lazerus, a cunning and perversely violent killer who is on the loose and terrorizing the inner city. Stillwell s desperate pursuit of Lazerus takes him into the dark, depraved Memphis underworld of street sex and senseless violence.

The story, which Steven Seagal wrote himself, isn't all that bad - especially given the pretty obvious fact that parts of that story didn't make it into the studio's final cut. The product description, for example, describes Seagal's character, Detective Jacob King, as "one of the most celebrated homicide detectives in the country." That certainly didn't come through in the film; as far as I could tell, he was just a Memphis detective (with perhaps the weirdest pseudo-Southern accent I've ever heard) who tends to go into rogue mode during his investigations but always ends up getting his man. There also seem to be some holes in the subplot involving the less important of two murderers, but it's the ending - unexpected and potentially confusing - that strongly suggests that you the viewer are correct in thinking you must have missed something pretty important earlier in the film.
Of course, you don't watch a Seagal film for the storyline; you watch it for all of the butt-kicking action sure to come your way.Read more ›
