Steven Seagal somehow still making movies, latest titled Contract to Kill

11.01.2016

Damn. According to imdb, Steven Seagal has starred in fifty-five films, with six coming out just this year. That is certainly productive.

But like anyone who makes a lot of things quickly, you find that one of the first things to go is quality control. It's just a fact. And to help prove that point is Seagal's latest film, CONTRACT TO KILL. In this one, Seagal stars as a badass CIA operative (again) who is hired take out an elusive Muslim terrorist who is working with Mexican cartels (this time with a team, because Seagal wants to work as few days as possible).

Anyway, here's the trailer:

HAHAHAHA!!! This almost looks like a spoof of lame, VOD action movies rather than the genuine article. And look, I'm sure Seagal still has his fans (he admittedly made some decent action flicks in the '90s), but come on. This certainly isn't UNDER SIEGE, or even UNDER SIEGE 2. For Christ's sake, he looks like a growly Walter Sobchak in a leather jacket, and his longest fight scene involves him sitting down the whole time! However, I will concede that the action scenes with his other teammates look alright, and the cinematography at least looks professional (which isn't always the case with a Seagal actioner). 

Now, if you're still somehow interested in watching CONTRACT TO KILL, it will be coming out to Wal-Mart discount bins December 9th, 2016.

I love the small pool of words that these kind of movies pick from when it comes to naming the movie. You've got Hard, Kill, Double, and a few others. Mix and match and boom there you go.

Looks terrible. Love the way Seagal stays in the shadows in most of the shots, for which the reason is quite obvious...

Is that the voiceover from the Honest Trailers? That didn't fit.

"Seagalogy: A Study of the Ass-kicking Films of Steven Seagal" is a great read. I recommend it!
Because of that book, I watched all his movies up to that point. It's been revised and a new version is out with more movie reviews up to 2012. I just... don't know if I can handle the semi-torture of watching more Seagal films hahahaha

Just as there's a market for films that play out Fundamentalist Christian fantasies, theres probably good morning money to be made making Alt-Right films. Muslims and Mexicans and evil Black Lives Matter terrorists. Evil politician women conspiring to rob Good People of their livelihoods and send them off to Death Camps.

Big money, I tells ya.

I wonder how studios make money off of junk like this? I know they get made for cheap, but do they actually make a profit on these types of DTV/VOD films? Also, have they no shame?

He used to be a great action star but I don't know what went wrong. Suddenly he started to make loads of crappy quality straight to DVD movies.

Ah Steven.....it is such a shame. Remember when you looked badass in Under Siege and you were riding high.....you could take out an entire army with one hand tied behind your back. Now you just look like you ate the entire army with one hand tied behind your back. You really have lost focus my friend.

In other news I worked with a guy who did martial arts and met him when he came to his dojo here in the UK....he said he was one of the calmest men he had ever met.

He was super cool back in the 80s. I think Above The Law is his best work.

He needs to give in

The guy's going to starve soon, he's gotten way too big and he's going to run out of work soon, he has to put his pride aside and do 'Expendables 4', it'll revitalize his long sagging career.
