  1. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film On Deadly Ground

    Steven Seagal decides to stop an evil oil platform and the best way is to take a shotgun and blast the workers away and it's leader, Michael Caine. I guess this is a film about what Greenpeace and other environmentalists would have liked to do with greedy corporate leaders if they had thrown away their morale compass and gone to real war against them. I have to say I'm glad Steven Seagal only has directed one film.

  2. Z's rating of the film On Deadly Ground

    A bad movie buffet. Seagal's directorial debut is a hilarious hash of hubris, pretension, ill-advised machismo, laughable action sequences, ridiculous dialog and downright stupidity. The film fails on every level while maintaining a self-righteous, humorless tone that makes it's ineptitude all the more glaring and funny. One has to marvel at how much unintentional comedy this obtuse monument to Seagal's ego produces.

  3. Easton Dubois's rating of the film On Deadly Ground

    That napsack of spoiled meat Al Gore should take note: I'm only interested in the environment if a fat man with a ponytail kills and splodes shit real good.

  4. ElTigreNegro's rating of the film On Deadly Ground

    If we had only listen to this man, this planet would had some hope. But noooo, we didn't listen. Now it's too late.

  5. Chuck Williamson's rating of the film On Deadly Ground

    Steven Seagal was later indicted for multiple counts of murder, eco-terrorism, animal cruelty, and auto-fellatio. The fringe leather jacket could not be reached for comment.

  6. Coheed 2.5's rating of the film On Deadly Ground

    Amusingly dumb action is one thing, but Seagal's only directorial work goes beyond 'Save the Earth' moralising to becoming a diatribe, making it hypocritical and obnoxious in its tone, taking an understandable message and shouting it at you until its off-putting. That the martial arts that made him famous was compromised for this damns the film despite one or two chuckles.

  7. VENIMOS LOS JODIMOS Y NOS FUIMOS's rating of the film On Deadly Ground

    Este debut detras de camaras de Steven Seagal resulta efectivo más para echar chacota, que para otra cosa. La pelicula entretiene, si, pero lo cagado del asunto se da al ver las pretensiones ecologistas de Seagal: despues de hacer volar en pedazos media Alaska, todavia se da tiempo de aventar un discurso en contra del calentamiento global. Michael Cane trata de pasar desapercibido bajo numerosas capas de maquillaje.

  8. Hunter Duesing's rating of the film On Deadly Ground

    An utterly idiotic, preachy vanity project that is essentially the defining film of Seagal's career, it's the only film he directed and it has all the elements that define him, including the hammy hippie social and political commentary, dime store spirituality, and beyond questionable wardrobe choices. As stupid as this movie is, it is relentlessly entertaining for all these reasons.
