Audience Reviews for Fire Down Below

  • Nov 23, 2013
    Fire Down Below had a lot of potential but the story and characters were uneventful. Seagal who seemingly channeled On Deadly Ground's environmental styled story-line, is actually quite good in the lead role. At this point in Seagal's career the damage had already been done and the fast track to VOD was clearly evident of the stars production ego on set. Seagal fans will find a likable and enjoyable performance from Seagal but the story-line and action are laughable. The good guy vs the bad guys isn't a new thing and Seagal is at home with this premise, but he has had better filmmakers to guide the film. I had hoped this film had been worthy of guilty pleasure status but sadly this is one of the weakest films of his theatrical releases. Fire Down Below might've been better had it focused less on bad guys who lacked any real menace or purpose. 20/07/2020

    This was most certianly the best Seagal film. Hanner SR: You're violating my constitutional rights. Jack Taggert: I will show you a new meaning to the word "violation".

    Is there a single worthwhile Seagal movie out there?

    If you can't stand country music like me, then you'll enjoy watching Seagal total wannabe fighters like Mark Collie. Unfortunately, Seagal tries to blend music and action and neither one works, much like the rest of this movie, despite it's above-average cast. I liked watching Seagal blow off half of Randy Travis' head, but that was the highlight of the film for me. Not a great movie.
