1.0 out of 5 stars He lives by the sword. You will be bored by it. February 2, 2009
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars RETHINK before you buy this movie March 24, 2009
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..

1.0 out of 5 stars an action legend bottoms out February 17, 2009
Some may not even be as generous to call Stephen Seagal an action legend. Let me start by saying this, I am very forgiving when it comes to b-rate action/sci-fi movies. I enjoy that genre, even in all of its corny and unbelieveable antics. It is one thing to be a b-movie, and shunned by the masses, they are definetly not for everybody. It is quite another to be so bad that not even fans of this type of movie can't stand it. For all intents and purposes, for people like me, this film should have been an easy slam dunk. A matial arts star (albiet washed up) and vampires. No one watching a movie like this is expecting an oscar-worthy script, or even good acting. Rather, they are looking for some redeeming quality, even if an over-the-top action sequence, or creative carnage, or in some way making light of itself (i.e. Bruce Campbell movies).

If there is one B-movie killer, it is the 'b' word. Boring. There are a myriad of bad movies out there, each bad for its own reason, but at least they are not boring, and thus have a select audience. Against the Dark couldn't be more boring. They do not even attempt to get you connected to any one of the characters. The biggest miss here is also the most obvious-Stephen. An Aikido master, we should have seen some action. His character is supposed to be a sword master, yet despite that, we see NO martial arts, and for a sword master, he barely touches it. Even with a big, cool sword, he opts to just shoot the vampires with no flash at all. The vampires, by the way, are less vampires, and more like zombies, except they can be stopped easily.

I was already to take umbrage to the claim that this was Steven Seagal's first horrible movie, until I reread the description and realized they meant his first `horror' movie. Read more
