Steven Seagal Dubbed?!?!

Steven-Seagal-Protects-Border

So I’ve been on a Steven Seagal kick of late, not literally because I’d be dead if he kicked me, but I digress. Born to Raise Hell, Attack Force and Out of Reach floored me at various points because Steven Seagal was clearly dubbed over in various scenes. Do they think people won’t notice?

I understand that he’s under contract to make so many straight to DVD movies, but come on, a little more effort would be nice. There are plenty of decent low budget movies out there and the thing is, these movies aren’t that bad. They have good stories, plenty of action and are shot for about $5 in Eastern Europe, so you’d think someone would maybe think that they should finish sound mixing with y’know… the actual cast.

Admittedly it was only in a few scenes in Born to Raise Hell which was otherwise a solid actioner but Out of Reach had nearly all of Seagal’s dialogue dubbed over by someone who is either severely taking the piss out of Seagal’s voice or is just plain crap.

Apparently the reason is Steven has such a busy schedule with other movies and his music career that he doesn’t have time for post-production work. So my question is this, why go on to work on other movies when this one clearly isn’t finished? It’s not exactly showing much respect to fans and it’s really off-putting; it’s also frankly an insult to my already low intelligence. Maybe later I’ll write half a review and have someone else fini…

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone. We also want to help promote new talent whether you're making blockbusters, low-budget Indie movies or fan films; if it's action, it's awesome.

Tron: Ascension has been Cancelled

Well this is rather disappointing news; I enjoyed Tron: Legacy and consider its music score by Daft Punk one of the all-time greats. It appears that the follow up entitled Tron: Ascension has had its plug pulled and is no longe...

I haven’t done a Kill Count for a few weeks so today Gary Daniels takes out the trash in this 90’s actioner from director Joseph Mehri. The story is about a corrupt right-wing militia group that chooses a California...
