I feel like I finally have made it as a movie reviewer. That’s because I was just sent a Steven Seagal film to review. Seriously, I have been clawing for this pinnacle and here I stand on it. And let me tell you, this sensation is pretty sweet.
First off, two bits of sad news. This is not an Exit Wounds reunion. Second, DMX and Seagal share no screen time.
Seagal plays the villain here, an older mobster whose son Desmond murders a man who he thinks is just a worthless junkie. It turns out that he’s the son of a cop who is now out for revenge.
It’s directed by James Cullen Bressack, who also was behind the movie Blood Craft. I will say, I can’t get enough for DMX swearing, so this movie delivers on that skillset for him.
I have a new goal in life: raise enough money to make a movie with Seagal in it. I’ll just have him sit around and tell stories about when he was a special ops agent, then stand up and break a man’s hand for no reason. Trust me. It’s going to be awesome.
Beyond the Law is now available from Cinedigm.
