Fire Down Below Reviews

Page 1 of 2
Douglas Pratt

The eco-hero who strikes fear in the heart of every polluting industrialist and sighs of pity in the heart of every fashion designer, Steven Seagal, takes his act to the backwoods of Kentucky

| Original Score: 2/5

Chuck O'Leary

A real pleasant surprise with a less brash, more likable Seagal. Manages to show a genuine affection for the kind of rural folks elitist Hollywood usually ridicules.

| Original Score: 7/10

Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)

Fire Down Below is an action film that's deadly slow and stupid -- like most of the mountain people portrayed in the film.

Marg Helgenberger plays Jack's love interest, the kind of tormented backwoodsy recluse Helen Reddy used to sing songs about. The stultifying aw-shucks courtship between the two is like a nightmarish version of 'The Bridges of Madison County'...

Unless you're in the market for boredom, skip this one.

As a movie, it's a piece of drivel.

You have to give Seagal points for having his heart in more or less the right place, but Fire Down Below is a hugely silly movie.

Chris Hicks
Deseret News, Salt Lake City

The acting is wooden (Seagal gets more zombie-like with each film), the writing is ridiculous and the fight scenes are redundant.

Not a very good film, but it does offer a few pleasant surprises, and I was not expecting that from a Steven Seagal flick.

[Seagal's] action scenes are so one-sided that nobody in the film ever lays a finger on him. It gets boring.

Never really generates much heat but instead delivers recycled lukewarm thrills.

This is sub-par Seagal, which puts it down below just about everything else.

Seagal barely works up a sweat... He certainly doesn't work up any drama.

One big self-distraction and nothing that vaguely resembles a real film.

By-the-book stuff, but that's what's expected whenever the name 'Steven Seagal' tops the marquee.

There are movies that you know can't be any good, so they'd better be great. Fire Down Below ... achieves that grand level of absurdity.

A by-the-numbers actioner that hits most of its marks.
