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.

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.

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.
