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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

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

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'...
