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.

Exit Wounds suggests that Seagal knows how to keep our eyes glued to the screen, when he puts his mind to it.

Imitation is the highest form of flattery, but not when it crosses the line into shameless rip-off.

Exit Wounds is really a succession of street fights, explosions, car chases and helicopter rescues in search of a plot.

You can scarcely help checking yourself for exit wounds as you leave the theater.

Decent action flick that imparts a satisfying, guilty pleasure.

This film is not just bad, not just a bomb, but a corporate disaster.

Sad, tedious proof that even violent exploitation isn't what it used to be.

Swift, tricky cutting helps to some degree but there's no denying that the big guy seems sluggish and weary.

A collection of the cop-movie cliches that time forgot.

It doesn't take long to see that Seagal has not spent his layoff getting buff and into fighting trim.

Between the comic bits and bone-crunching, metal-ripping violence, there's a lot of dead space thanks to a script that fires dramatic blanks.
