I think I'm beginning to learn my lesson. I recently caught Seagal's film "A Good Man", and it was a shocker to see how old and out of shape he's gotten, not so good for a former action star. But here, and thankfully he's not on screen that long, he's simply ballooned all out of proportion to someone who once took his art and fitness somewhat seriously.

But what's even worse here is the story. There's so much inane stuff going on that it's hard to keep a straight face. Like the most inept team of assassins ever, firing upon the story's protagonist, Axon Rey, the Condor (Johnny Messner), and his former girlfriend Nina (Sasha Jackson), somehow miraculously brought back from the dead, until we find out it was a body double that was buried in her place. So there's that, but what's entirely laughable is the idea that Axon and Nina would attempt to find refuge from the hit team in his own apartment! He even mentioned it was the most likely place for the goon squad to look, which made the whole idea even more of a joke.

I don't know what it could possibly be. Does Steven Seagal actually need the money to appear in and produce a picture this bad? If this isn't the hokiest assassin flick ever I'd be surprised to come across a worse one, at least in the present day. And if the Matt Lauer look-alike Johnny Messner shows up in any more pictures like this, he might as well abbreviate his last name to Mess.
