Steven Seagal Dubbed?!?!


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…
