Editorial Reviews

Welcome to Alcatraz. "The Rock" has just re-opened for business, but the first criminal slated for the electric chair is also sitting on a secret worth $200 million. And an invading group of commandos (led by Morris Chestnut) isn't going to let his fortune go up in smoke. Already undercover in Alcatraz, FBI Agent Petrosevitch (Steven Seagal) has to neutralize the situation and rescue a Supreme Court Justice held hostage. Worse, he has to convince his convict "partner" (Ja Rule) and the other inmates to fight on the right side of the law.

Half Past Dead, is a reasonably entertaining, comic book level, action flick. While no masterpiece, it does have its moments, and some pleasant surprises. Action veteran Steven Seagal heads a diverse cast, and though we don't see too much of his trademark fighting style, he delivers a solid performance, with perhaps a bit more depth of character than usual.
Seagal is Sasha Petrosevitch, an undercover FBI agent, working to gain the confidence of Nick, a big time car thief, played by rapper Ja Rule. After a confrontation with the FBI, both men are incarcerated on Alcatraz. Bruce Weitz (Hill Street Blues) is Lester McKenna, a prisoner who has stolen and hidden 20 million in gold bullion. On death row, he is about to be executed, when the prison is invaded by the "49ers", a group of criminals who want McKenna to reveal the gold's location. Morris Chestnut is Donnie Johnson (49er One), the group's charismatic and ruthless leader. His second in command is 49er Six, played with style and panache, by the explosive and sexy Nia Peeples. Johnson's plans need to be adjusted, when the inmates get involved.
Actor/Writer/Director Don Michael Paul provides an informative commentary that stresses and details, the trials and tribulations of bringing this low budget production to the screen. Paul's screenplay was originally written years before, but was shelved because of similarity to Jerry Bruckheimer's film, "The Rock". Rewritten to incorporate modern elements of hip-hop culture, Paul explains that his goal was to produce a fast paced film, with a stylized music video vibe. His big screen directorial debut was filmed primarily in Berlin, shortly after the 9/11 incident.

I would really like to know why almost every film that I like lately, is put down badly by the movie reviewers, like Ebert! I'm finding it's getting more and more repetitive, anyways, this movie I thought was really good! Just by looking at the trailer I knew it would be good, and it hints you that Ja Rule plays the bad guy, well, that's what I thought anyway, but, I was WRONG! Ja Rule is a prisoner of alcatraz joined by FBI Agent faking being prisoner/criminal(Seagel), just wanting to be Ja Rule's friend to find out information on what happened to Seagel's wife. Morris Chestnut plays the bad guy in the movie, him and his team breakin into alcatraz and start killing guards in demand of ransom. Sounds like The Rock(Cage, Connery, Harris) Well, turns out for much different reasons and the way it's connected is much different! Plus, this is the new alcatraz, if you didn't catch that in the trailer, with an excecution chair! It's a cool movie, really well done by the actors, Ja Rule finally learned to not swear every line, he doesn't swear half as much in this movie as in Turn It Up, but it was meant like that for Turn It Up, anyways, both movies are good and I suggest to anyone to look at this great movie!

Half Past Dead is far from Steven Seagal's best work (see: Above the Law and Under Siege). It is also nowhere near some of his more recent dreadful flicks (see: The Patriot (on my top 10 list of all time worst films ever)). Half Past Dead's predictable plot provides enough action and interesting characters to keep the viewer's attention. I could do without the slow-mo/speed up fight seen special effects. Overall this is a decent film worthy of renting by action film fans and of buying for Seagal fans.

Even after "Ticker" I was hoping that Segal would redeem himself and make a better effort like he did in Exit Wounds. But Seagal couldn't resist in making another crappy film, so he gave us this "Half Past Dead"...More like Half Past 300 Pounds ; Seagal also couldn't resist from eating more quarter pounders, I bet he created his own cheeseburger during the hiatus he had from Exit wounds to Half Past Dead.It must have been called "Seagal's gain weight in 10 days cheeseburger". Seriously, I don't understand how someone can gain weight from one movie to another. If you were to put Exit Wounds & Half Past Dead together side by side you will notice a huge difference in weight.

As for the movie itself its ludicrous at most; the plot is so laughable that I have no idea how anyone could have green light this project, First of all this is a rip-off "The Rock". the whole movie is about some dudes that decide to brake in to a newly reopened Alcatraz, inside they will find an inmate that has the location of a lot of money in gold brick. The inmates decide to fight back against the criminals that are breaking in..Ironic isn't? Funny thing is if you watch the trailer for the movie it seems somewhat interesting, the idea of breaking into a jailhouse is a bit original and neat, but the way it was executed here was very weak. Even though this movie is billed as a "Seagal" movie, it really isn't. Ja-Rule, Morris Chestnut and even Kurupt have more screen time than Seagal. And the most annoying thing is the doubles; Seagal has doubles for all of his fights, and when he does fight is just the camera closing in on his overweight face doing patty cake with his hands.
