But here's the thing, as movies from the late 80's/early 90's go, this is NOT a bad movie at all. Yes, Seagal had his head-bobbing a la Clooney going full force in this one to make his words seem that much more effective and meaningful, but this was not considered a low budget movie back then. This would now be considered an excellent direct-to-video release with very high production value. What happened?
As with any old movie, you have to watch it with the asterisk inside your head that it is an older movie. That goes for something like Casablanca all the way up to The Avengers. Trust me. 15 years from now we will cringe at the dialogue in that one and firmly state that the action still holds up, but boy, are those special effects out-dated! This is probably Segal at the top of his game, which might be well not enough for most people, but it's got action in key parts, succeeds at also being somewhat of a thriller, and even tries to throw drama and a little bit of social commentary in to boot. That's a lot to squish in to 93 minutes, and considering Under Siege didn't have all that thrown in to 100 minutes, it could be argued that this is a better "overall" movie with Seagal whereas Under Siege is a far superior action flick.Read more ›
It is Seagal at his brutal best. As the Editorial Review says, he plays a disillusioned former DEA agent, who comes back home), to find his neighborhood being ravaged by a group of Jamaicans and their drug trade. Seagal cleans it up the situation as only he could: blasting a handful of the bad guys away with pistol and shotgun, and beating the rest savagely.
This movie, like his premier "Above the Law", has some of his technically most proficient Aikido, particularly after he crashes his car into a department store and then takes on about four adversaries in a randori, or challenge of one defender against multiple attackers.
Of course, it would not be some shattering news to reveal here that in the end, Seagal prevails over the leader of this drug posse, nicknamed Screwface (the name comes from a Bob Marley song). They fight with swords, bottles, and ultimately hands. But the climactic fight is equally brutal as it is final.
It was not nominated in the "Best Movie" category. It is not particularly thought provoking. But what it is is an action movie. And as that, it is worth the price of admission.
On the next day, after reuniting with his sister Melissa and Melissa's daughter Tracy, John gets into a shootout against a Jamaican drug kingpin known as Screwface, taking down some of Screwface's men. John brings himself out of retirement when Screwface retaliates by attempting to kill Melissa and Tracy.
After the shooting, John is reunited with two old friends - a local high school football coach named Max, and a Jamaican Chicago cop named Charles. John and Max set out to hunt Screwface down, only to discover that Screwface has gone back to Jamaica. John and Max take Charles with them to Jamaica for an all out war against Screwface and his drug empire.
A real suprise waiting for you at the end , a must for Seagal collectors .
Seagal plays a cop taking on some scary Jamaican drug lords. They're into voodoo or something, Seagal gets his Mustang wrecked, and before the end, a lot of arms and wrists are going to be snapped like so many twigs.
What has happened to Seagal? In this movie his fight scenes are pretty good. They had perfected the Seagal film formula by this point and would follow it with the equally brutal Out for Justice. This was before the filmmakers had to extensively doctor the fight scenes with camera tricks like fast motion and telephoto lenses in order to disguise the fact that Seagal had become old, fat, and completely out of shape.
Seagal's last few films have gone straight to DVD and they are absolutely appalling, yes, even for a Seagal film. Marked for Death is a actually good for what it is. Compare it to something like Ticker or Out for a Kill and see how the mighty have fallen. Seagal's IHOP excesses have destroyed him. Watch Marked for Death to see him in all of his bullying, macho glory.

I've always been a fan of this movie, not a great movie, like most Segal films, but as far as his earlier works are concerned this is probably flush with Under Seige. Read morePublished on Sept. 13 2010 by Brian Babcock
A lot of people concider this movie and Out For Justice two of Steven Seagal's best. They're probably right but that's still not saying much. Read morePublished on July 9 2004 by M. Smith
