It's not just that Seagal makes awful movies; it's that he makes the exact same awful movies over and over. He's that annoying uncle who never stops borrowing money.

Pretty decent action/kidnapping yarn with good pacing, decent action and semi-vivid characters.

Audience Reviews for Belly of the Beast


I actually enjoyed this one for the pure nonsensical, ridiculous over the top action with absolutely no story other than "they have my daughter". That's what Seagal does, he kills people, and he does a lot of that in this movie. Is it one of his best? No far from it, but for his later films it is okay.

Not one of Seagal's best movies, but not overly horrible either. The plot is typical Direct-To-DVD Seagal stuff and the acting is subpar, but then again Seagal is past his prime at this point.
