It probably goes without saying that Exit Wounds is loaded with plotholes and bad dialogue. Critics also note that Seagal has aged rather badly.

Seagal -- who turns 50 in a few weeks -- has been inactive for the past few years, and it shows.
In its low grade way, this blithely brutal cops and drugs thriller is an efficient hot wire entertainment.
The movie's just an excuse for the entire cast to point guns at each other before engaging in verbal or actual smackery.
There's no story here. The film is all about the grisly, electric mayhem that ensues when these two guys hit the streets.
For those in search of action-filled escapist entertainment who are willing to jettison expectations of credibility into the nearest popcorn tub, Exit Wounds ... will do to pass time on an inclement day.
In fairness, the movie is more or less competent for being what it is. Of course, I could say the same of most brick walls -- but I'd hardly recommend that you pay eight bucks to sit in front of one for two hours.
Very violent honest-cop corruption story.
Orin Boyd is a cop who "doesn't obey the rules" and although his boss considers him to be "one of the best", he must be transferred to one of the roughest precincts in town.
...a refreshingly action-packed film that's distractingly enjoyable.
With a plot that can be roughly described as Serpico for people who never outgrew The A-Team, Seagal beats and bangs up Detroit single-handedly.
Anyone who experienced Seagal's films when he was in his prime will know that he is to acting ability what Robin Cook is to personal magnetism.
The film does exhibit a major problem typical of book adaptations; it's overburdened with plot and supporting characters.
Exit Wounds' action sequences are somewhat impractical and, though entertaining in a way, cannot salvage the film's sloppily-written story, ineffective chemistry or cheesy dialogue. 2/5
Seagal plays he usual style role of a renegade cop with no respect for authority. DMX is a gangster with whom Seagal teams up with to find out who has stolen fifty kilos of heroin from the vaults of a Detroit police vault.
The teaming up of a hard cop and a hard gangster in a different take on the buddy cop genre was a nice idea, but it raises too many plot flaws and the duo don't have the comedy timing to make it work well.
Exit Wounds does entertain with it's action and thrills, but its ultimately forgettable.
Doesn't stand out like it should in the overpopulated world of Seagal films and perhaps only got the audience and attention it got because it had the then-redhot DMX co-starring in it, whom I have a hard time believing could kick Seagal's ass in a fight, much less stand toe-to-toe with him. Has a good cast that would've given this film a higher rating, but I took a half a star off for having the Law & Order-killing Anthony Anderson in it (Just kidding about the star part, but not about Anderson).
Rough movie, but the opening bridge explosion scene was filmed in my hometown of Calgary, so I had to check it out.
