While Half Past Dead was Seagal's so-bad-it's-good movie of his theatrical run, this is in the running for that of his straight-to-video career.

Enjoyable Seagal flick that manages to be one of his best Direct to DVD films.

Thankfully Steven Seagal kills two slopes in the beginning scene otherwise a black guy would die first. Oh no if they would have cut the beginning scene, there would be no black guy dying first. But well you shouldn't ignore the suffering of the blacks.

It wasn't seagals best. The plot was all over the place and there was not enough action scenes. The only good part was the setting.

Pour un fan acharne de Steven Seagal, trouver un film reussi avec le cachalot aikidoka post-2001 tient plus de l'ordre du fantasme que de l'espoir. Et pourtant, Into The Sun, DTV de 2005, est un tres bon thriller de seconde zone, plutot bien ecrit et tres efficace. Les acteurs sont aussi étrangement bons et l'action frenetique et sanglante. Qu'est-ce qu'un amateur de thrillers du samedi soir pourrait demander de plus?

What would you expect from a Steven Seagal film. The story wasn't all to great but the action was okay.

This is an example film as to were, just because you're a martial artist, doesn't mean you're an actor.

Really bad. Seagal seems to spend a lot of time sitting down

Absolutely horrible! Have the movie is spoken in Chinese with NO subtitles. WTF? Good luck figuring this movie out! I stopped watching 1/3 of the way in. Must be the WORST Segal movie ever made!

Into the Sun seems to take a strangely casual approach to the action and it looks like there's no intensity in the characters as they merely pull the trigger on guns that might as well be toys, because either way it just isn't ideal. And Steven Seagal continues this approach in his acting scenes as well, monotonously delivering every line.
And the two key action sequences at the beginning feature no apparent link and set the audience up for a mindless action picture, even though its what you'd expect from Direct-to-DVD Steven Seagal films.
But the key problem is the fact that for a Steven Seagal film, there's a few decent action sequences at the start and then is basically bereft of them for the next hour, so the story more falls under the crime drama genre but it isn't what audiences are expecting so it's easy to get bored.
Plus, the intro action sequence doesn't link in with the rest of the film and misleads the viewer, and it's unlike a Steven Seagal film not to do that, so things are strange in Into The Sun.

But the action is of fairly decent calibre even though there isn't enough if it, and some of the plot dynamics exceed the standards set by Direct-to-DVD Steven Seagal films, although the lack of action is the disappointment especially because the action was better than expected.
So Into the Sun is and isn't what you'd expect, but it isn't too much to enjoy.

Could be worth a look interesting story there.

This was a garbled mess, but the end fight sequence helped.

amazing movie, he kicks their ass in one shot sword swing.chiaki kuriyama is cool too, too bad for his partner ,his teacher and his girlfriend actually, because of his job, they died. It's a price that he must pay.

After failing to get the green light to remake The Yakuza, Seagal went to work on this film instead, which is surprisingly one of his best in years. Seagal not only starred in this film, but also wrote the screenplay and executive produced it and it's a very good film. Good action and a moderate pace make it enjoyable even if you gave up on Seagal after The Glimmer Man. Jazz legend Stanley Clarke did the music for this film as well.

Would someone please ask him to stop making movies.

Personally I don't like Seagal as I think he's a bit of a drip. His acting was hopeless at the start of the film. Does he really speak Japanese? Because I must say as a student studying Japanese for 8 years I have to give him credit, because he sounded authentic to me. The only reason I watched this film was because it was filmed in Tokyo and having lived there, I miss it.

A pretty crap movie. Yeah it's entertaining and has some credible one liners but the overrall acting is completely shait and the plot is not original whatsoever.
