Marked for Death (1990) with Steven Seagal (Reel Action)

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

1990 was a big year for Steven Seagal. After blasting his way to fame in Above the Law, Seagal had two movies open to boffo box office in 1990. First there was Hard to Kill, which paired him with future wife Kelly LeBrock, while 1990's Marked For Death, the only film he made away from Warner Bros in his heyday, was an even bigger cult success. To this day, it's considered one of the pony-tailed one's greatest films, with it pairing him against a Rastafarian drug lord, memorably named Screwface. One of the most violent action flicks of the nineties, and a personal favorite of our host Travis Hopson, we examine why this stands the test of time as one of Seagal's best movies.
