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

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

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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