Viewing Notes

Steven Seagal has really declined to the level of not doing any real stunt work/physical hand-to-hand combat stuff anymore. Not sure why that is, but it’s too bad, because Against the Dark could have really used some Seagal ass-kicking in it.

To be fair, he does do some ass-kicking, but it’s all with bladed weapons and the cinematography on those scenes leaves something to be desired. It wasn’t terrible, but wasn’t terribly good either.

Despite the worn down premise and the mostly singular location (a hospital), there were a few interesting moments (one in particular, involving a broken beer bottle and a grenade, was pretty damn inventive and cool) that kept me from dozing off. Still, I can’t say I recommend anyone seek this out and watch it.
