Editorial Reviews

Katana master Tao (Steven Seagal) leads a special ops squad of ex-military vigilantes on a massacre mission, their target: vampires. On the post apocalyptic globe, sucked dry by bloodthirsty vampires, a few remaining survivors are trapped in an infected hospital. Tao is their only hope and he knows the only cure is execution. Now it's time for the last stand against the flesh-eating vampires and there's nothing left to lose but the last of humanity.

1.0 out of 5 stars He lives by the sword. You will be bored by it. February 2, 2009
Format:DVD
As if he was a rather large and sweaty product on the Generation Game, The Fat Lord returns on his own personal conveyor belt of mediocrity with this new direct to video stinker. Anyone still reeling from the sheer lunacy of his last effort ''Kill Switch'' (which to be fair I actually enjoyed in a ''what the hell?'' kind of way) will come down to earth with a fast, large thud as Seagal's latest is nothing more than an overly long dull pseudo horror flick which barely has any running time with our favorite pony tailed video master.

The story has the world (well, Bulgaria or some other non american location) engulfed by a plague which has turned us humans into low rent extras from '28 Days Later'. The rest of humanity are huddled into small groups attempting survival and escaping the marauding vampire/zombie combo. Into the fray, comes our leather jacketed hero, brandishing a sword which would normally take 3 blokes to carry and ''swooshing'' everything in sight. The Fat Lord's acting style consists of two levels of expression: Silent grimace as if he was stuck on the toilet or a quick piff paff puff - he's swooshed his sword again. Then, back to grimace.

Anyway, I digress. Back to the story. Our hero The Fat Lord leads a team of hunters who travel with him across the scorched landscape taking out the undead and trying to help the remaining survivors and bring them to safety. Across another part of the city, a team of survivors have banded together in a disused hospital where they attempt to make their way out and survive the night, dodging being attacked by the undead and trying to emote any form of emotion out of a one note script which asks nothing more of them except to look attractive whilst screaming or run away from a stunt man covered in blood with large rubber fangs.

If your thinking of renting/buying this video because it looks like Stevie has done a horror movie well he has.....but that is just because how bad this film is. First-not scary. Second-Bad acting (worse than you would expect, I should say). Third-Seagal is hardly in the movie. The only time we see him is as he and his "entourage' walk through this bldg easily striking down these creatures as they `step' out one at a time to be sliced and diced!! No thought put into any of these scenes.....it must have taken Stevie a cool 30 minutes on the set to come in and film his whopping < 8 minutes total and then go to another set to start another bad movie. Worst of all how do you have all these creatures running around and the movie is still boring? I was even having a beer and it was still bad........... DO NOT BE DECEIVED!!! THIS MOVIE REEKS!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars RETHINK before you buy this movie March 24, 2009
Format:DVD
QUESTION: What is more unstoppable that Steven Seagal? ANSWER: Steven Seagal with a sword..

The main reason I have not watched any Steven Seagal movies in many years is because his character is always untouchable. How many times can we watch Seagal slice through the biggest and baddest villians like a hot knife through butter and never even get a single scratch? It's a boring formula, and drains all suspense from the movie.. because you know our hero will never even get touched by anyone of anything.

I bought Against The Dark hoping it would be a little bit different. After all, it was a total change up for Steven Seagal as far as movie type. He wouldn't be that dumb as to bring the same old untouchableness into a horror movie would he???? But he did... and right before I put the movie in I said laughingly, "I'll bet Seagal has the same look he always has in every movie.. He will be invincible and never even break a sweat. He will always be in total control and never have a finger laid on him." And I was so right...

Even in a world where an unknown virus has turned most of the population into vampire like creatures, Stevie wears his same old hide kicking grimace and obliterates everything in his path with ease. He never gets scared, never flinches and has the whole situation by the short hairs.

The acting is bad in this movie as well.. When Stevie delivers his lines he sounds like he is trying to be a gangsta.. other times he sounds like Fog Horn Leg Horn doing a Steven Seagal impression. And yet sometimes, he reminds me of my Uncle Louie when he was a bit younger and had teeth. Stevies moves were bad, was he injured or something????? All he did was the same few swish, swish, swishes with his sword and slash the vampires necks..

A briefly viewed, bloated, lumbering, mumbling Steven Seagal lurches thru this cinematic mess with all the screen magnetism of a turnip. Avoid!
