Movie Info

In Marked for Death, Steven Seagal is told to "try to find the gentle person inside yourself." But he doesn't spend too much time looking, preferring instead to crack the spines of his victims. Seagal plays John Hatcher, a burned-out narcotics agent who resigns from the Drug Enforcement Administration after his partner is killed. He returns to his hometown and finds the city in the thrall of a vicious Jamaican drug gang, led by the nasty Screwface (Basil Wallace). He meets an old friend, now a high school football coach, who tells John about losing his best player and his 13-year-old nephew to drug overdoses. Soon John's family is threatened and his prize Mustang stolen, so John joins forces with his buddy to take on Screwface and the drug gang themselves.

    Ok it's Seagal, so I shouldn't need to say much here, except that somehow this one isn't as bad as it should be. It's strangely watchable. Probably the best Seagal I've seen. It's got all the usual Seagal elements; big bad guy, crime, Segal's unflappable bone breaking ways, someone who needs to be saved/protected, car chases, fist/gun fights, naked chicks, and explosions. This time though it somehow kinda works. It just rolls along and keeps delivering "the goods" as it were, in an economical, sure-footed straight-to -the-point sort of way. Or maybe the Voodoo's gotten to me?

    Steven Seagal plays a tough and rough retired cop who becomes marked for death after he crosses some members of a Jamaican gang of drug dealers who are led by Screwface, a scary Rastaman who has magical voodoo powers and is one of Seagal's more worthy adversaries. I thought the best acting actually was by the villain "Screwface"(Basil Wallace). Rent this one if you are into mindless action films (I sure am lol!!).

    Steven Seagal was the man back in the hey day of mindless action movies, and this one was an interesting change from the usual cop thrillers. Seagal play a retiring DEA agent, having had enough of the drugs and evils of his job, so he quits, makes his confession and gos back home to recuperate and forget about it all. The problem is, the Rastafarian gangs are taking over, taking drug dealing to a whole new level with provocative violence and stir crazy mythology, led by the psychotic Screwface, a supreme being amongst his men and feared by everyone. When Seagal interferes in a nightclub shootout, he and his family are cursed and marked for death by the gang, so its time to kick ass of course! Anyways, what i liked about this movie was the change of pace and the bad guys, the Jamaicans are a scary bunch when hopped up on drugs and twisted immortality. Of course, there is a plot and background to the story, but it disappears in the first half when Seagal loses his cool and declares war on the gangs. Action, things that go BOOOM and a pretty hectic car chase which ends with a nice jump into a jewelery story, and finally the showdown at the end which consists of a duel with swords. Anyways, the only problem you will face is understanding what the rastas are saying. I was alright with it, but hell it took me time to fully understand a rasta accent and language, so subtitles will help heaps. XD Anyways, another 90's action flick, and Seagal is smooth as usual. It even has a great scene in the crappy script, where Seagal meets his partner after killing one guy and watching a Rasta jump out a window to his death.... "One thought he was immortal and the other thought he could fly. Both were wrong." XD
