Product Description

EPA Marshal Taggert tries to ferret out who is responsible for dumping toxins into abandoned mines and why the locals don't talk about it.
Genre: Feature Film-Action/Adventure
Rating: R
Release Date: 3-FEB-2004
Media Type: DVD

Here's a movie that only a Steven Seagal fan could love. It's not nearly as good as Under Siege (the movie destined to remain Seagal's high-water mark), but not any worse than Above the Law. This time ol' Steve is an agent of the Environmental Protection Agency who's busting heads in Kentucky. He's on good terms with the local yokels (including Marg Helgenberger and Harry Dean Stanton), but locks horns with a slimy mogul (Kris Kristofferson) who's using abandoned mines to dump toxic waste. Along with an ecological message, Seagal serves up several broken limbs, cracked skulls, and bloody noses, and he even finds time to do some guitar picking with country boys such as Travis Tritt and Randy Travis. Once you've heard Seagal crooning a country tune, you'll be eager to see him go back to whuppin' the bad guys. --Jeff Shannon

Format:VHS Tape
Good story line, excellent casting, action but not brutal like some of Segal's other movies, good music, some comedy, and even a love story. What more could you ask for? Makes for a very relaxing evening. Our whole family enjoyed it right down to the six year old who has watched it several times. By the way, your first person on this site who gave a review did not see the picture as Steven Segal did not sing in it but did play the guitar and rather well. If you are going to accept reviews they should at least see the movie rather than trying to be funny at someone else's expense.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of The Best January 9, 2007
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
If you like Steven Segal, you will love this movie. He is fabulous in it, and slams the really evil bad guys in their faces, the way they deserve to be slammed. He is dashing, handsome, and very sensitive to the nice people in the town he is visiting. He is caring and tries to help them. He also is a gentleman, besides meting out his special type of punishment, the way we all just LOVE to see. I love this movie.

If you have seen all of segal's stuff and want something a little different, I think you will like this. Of course they have segal doing a lot of stuff that he wouldn't be possibly able to do, but it is still better than watching orlando bloom or somebody ripping guys apart.

The story like I said is actually pretty good and a touching story with an old man and segal working on a nice lady's stairs makes this superior to most martial arts type movies story-lines. Not that I would call this a real kungfu movie or nothing, it plays a little more like a REAL amrican version of a jackie chan style movie, just a lot more drama.

Good explosions, good car chase, and some quality stephen segal action. If you thought exit wounds was decent at all, you will like this.

Steven Seagal is one of those actors with a totally winning personality... He is simply an authority figure, a killing machine with a heart of purest gold... I can't help it; I like the guy.

In 'Fire Down Below,' he is an outsider posing as a church sponsored carpenter while he works for the Environmental Protection Agency to stop a greedy coal baron from dumping extremely large quantities of toxic wastes in abandoned coal mines... Those dangerous chemicals could destroy the drinking water for thousands of miles and kill a bunch of people around the hills... Seagal gallantly promised not to leave the small town until the poison from the air, the streams and the earth is taken out...

Many thugs (with snakes, sticks, guns, and big trucks) are hired by the uncaring mining magnate to get rid of our action hero but Seagal remains virtually untouched...

'Fire Down Below' highlights new environmental message but fails to come up with the expectations... First, Seagal's amorous interest with the sad country woman seems artificial, used in the film to grant the 'new visitor' easy access to statements he might need... Second, the motion picture lacks the best villain whose prowess could equals Seagal's... Steven's character never really faces much of a challenge... In fact, the fight scenes are too short and extremely fast and easy...

If you are a fan of country music and you want to see Seagal playing guitar and singing, and you like to explore sweeping vistas with glorious sunsets, don't miss this movie!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie October 20, 2005
I have watched this movie three times. It has action, a very good plot, and humor. And believe it or not, it does get a little chilly in ol'kentuck, especially 1/4 mile below.

By the time "Fire Down Below" rolled around, it was all too clear that things had taken a turn for the worse with ol' Steven Seagal. His days as an A-lister were almost completely behind him, and the only awards his films were considered for were the dishonorable Razzis. Our favorite wrist-snapping aikido master was in the doldrums - stuck between his best work and his short-lived comeback, and just barely making back the budgets of his offerings. Nevertheless, critical response to his movies never matched my feelings, and for what it's worth, I think "Fire Down Below" is a pretty fine vehicle.

For all non-canonical purposes, the movie is a spiritual successor to On Deadly Ground. Seagal is Jack Taggart, an EPA agent dispatched to ascertain what's causing the toxic epidemic that's swept a small Kentucky town owned by a wealthy millionaire (Kris Kristofferson, Blade trilogy) and operated by his son (Brad Hunt, Cookers) and the local posse. After fending off several attacks by the proprietors' goons and getting affectionately involved with the town's beautiful outcast (Marg Helgenberger, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation), Taggart realizes that the sicknesses arising around the town are not the result of some environmental accident, but of something purposely ruthless and dangerous...

The film wants a little for action, containing only about three brawls, one car chase, and two big shoot-outs.
