A sizeable amount of the budget for this lazy film must have been spent on ammunition.

The title of this dismal action flick refers to the Seagal character's having suffered a near-death experience, though he's returned from the other side with a remarkable lack of insight.

Half Past Dead may be the year's funniest unintentional comedy for its inane plot, repetitive, unimaginative stunts and dreadful dialogue.

Sometimes, when you've just wasted a tenner and a perfectly good evening watching another dumb, gratuitously gun-filled, hackneyed, nonsensical action picture, don't you wish you were as thick, lazy and easily pleased as Hollywood wants you to be?

Look upon his fleshy neck, his dodgy hair and his strangely puffy immobile face, ye pantywaist liberals, and tremble!

Once upon a time Seagal's fighting made him look pretty deadly. These days he's looking way past dead.

Corny, nonsensical buddy flick.
November 18, 2002
This is so bad.
November 15, 2002
Here, common sense flies out the window, along with the hail of bullets, none of which ever seem to hit Sascha.
November 15, 2002
First-time director Don Michael Paul can't make the action move, though he wisely keeps the lighting dark and murky so we can barely see whether withering star Seagal really can keep up.
November 15, 2002
Divertingly ridiculous, headbangingly noisy.
November 15, 2002
When Seagal appeared in an orange prison jumpsuit, I wanted to stand up in the theater and shout, 'Hey, Kool-Aid!'
November 15, 2002
About as weak a movie as can be made without actively trying.
November 15, 2002
Ear-splitting exercise in formula crash-and-bash action.
November 15, 2002
Wildly incompetent but brilliantly named Half Past Dead -- or for Seagal pessimists: Totally Past His Prime.
November 15, 2002
Seagal, who looks more like Danny Aiello these days, mumbles his way through the movie.
November 15, 2002
A shoot-'em-up for cynical times. Its only asset is Seagal himself, and frankly, he's is getting a bit past it.
November 15, 2002
Has the cheesy, deadened feel of a straight-to-cable film.
November 15, 2002
It goes through the motions of an action thriller, but there is a deadness at its center, a feeling that no one connected with it loved what they were doing.
