Customer Reviews

As an action movie this was great.
Corey Rogers
In On Deadly Ground Seagal Plays Forest Taft (I would Pay 20 buck to see who has that name in real life), an expert at taking out oil rig related fires.
Sebastian Sanjurjo
I mean, he works for the bad guy at the beginning of the movie.

Before I watched this movie, I expected it to be really bad. But I don't think it was that bad. It was quite entertaining. Some scenes were unnecessary, for example the fight in the bar (but it's always fun to see Mike Starr). It also feels like the moviemakers made a more or less desperate attempt to give the movie some spiritual depth, which only makes it strange. I wish the movie had a better lead actor, Steven Seagal is quite bad, but Michael Caine is good in his part as the evil owner of the Oil Company. The characters are quite simple and Seagal's speech in the end of the movie doesn't really fit in, but as an action movie, I think this movie is totally okay and quite entertaining. If it is on TV and you have nothing else to do, why not watch it?

not even michael caine could save this BLEEDING HEART(in more ways than one) about the raping of the alaskaen interior by an oil company is just so bad that you wonder how it ever got made. steven seagal walks through it in a half daze(he also directed)and kills more pepple than any accident by an oil company! the final "speach" is the only part of the movie that works(but only because it's so funny,not because it's good)! movies like this are what killed mr. seagals movie chances!!

REALLY,REALLY BAD!!!!!!!!!!

The plot : environmentally sensitive macho-man versus evil oil tycoon looking to exploit the virgin wilderness of the nature loving Eskimos. It sounds like an A-Team episode. The dialouge is almost laughable - "you are the bear" the shaman says to Forest, the main character, "you have a destiny to fufill". Uggh, cliche city. The action sequences are sub-par and are made all the more boring because Forest is essentially a super-man, and from begining to end the supporting characters never waste an opportunity to tell us just how great he is. The movie is capped off with a sappy, anti-corporate speech (complete with canned images of smog-filled cities and oil-soaked seals). I watched this entire movie because I'm overseas and english-language entertainment is hard to come by. Otherwise I would have stopped watching it within 20 minutes, easy.

What's all about that big story or big issue's stuff? This is a Steven Seagal movie and the badguy's are getting a real tough time with him. Cinematography and music are much better than usual in an actioner. There explicit gore in it to. But if you dont like Seagal or want to talk about the background or motivation of the characters after the 100 minutes then leave it. Otherwise it's great(a bit mindles)fun.

As an entertainment, "On Deadly Ground" simply gets too caught up in its messages to be entirely successful as a narrative film. Then again, this is one of the lower-end Seagal narratives, most of which are enjoyable when they focus on the kick-butt formula ("Hard to Kill") and less upon the propaganda end--the teetering edge of which sits this 1993 offering. It's not as horrific as some reviewers are leading you to believe, but it's not that great either. One thing I do appreciate about the film is that Seagal took a much more active hand behind the camera--he's directing, he's focusing, he's thinking about what he wishes to say. I appreciate what he says in his final speech (and I understand his feelings about animal rights and environmental politics) but this film is not the appropriate pulpit for such a sermon to emerge from. Like Chaplin in 1940's "The Great Dictator", Seagal steps "out of character" for that ending speech, deciding to forget all about the man of silence that he has been up until this conclusion, and addressing the audience upfront about how he feels about evil oil companies ruining the Western land. The sentiment is appreciated, but in context it is more annoying than helpful. It seems that here Seagal was trying to play too many different angles against each other at once, but I can also appreciate his frustrations at having to do another cop movie instead (please). The movie is filled with wall-to-wall action scenes that don't add up to much, other than that outrageous explosion near the end (which actually feels out of place in this movie!).Read more ›

The only good thing about this movie is the aikido moves performed by Steven. Otherwise the movie is kinda uninteresting. Steven produced it himself and tried to give a good message with this film, but the way the movie is, you quickly forget to care anythin about the story.
Buy it if you like violent movies with good choregraphed aikido scenes.

Most movies of this genre do not contain a worthwhile message but this one certainly does - even if it is conveyed in a somewhat shlocky manner. The message is that the oil companies still rule our lives and spoil our environment, with a further emphasis on the idea that alternative technolgies to oil are available in many instances but surpressed by the powers-that-be. Of course Steve needs to punch up the roughnecks, drown an oil executive in sea sludge and blow up the world's largest oil rig to make this point - but of course that is part of the fun! (BTW the rig demolition is designed to 'implode' instead of explode to avoid an oil spill.) Lots of good pyrotechnics and some good casting. Caine plays an excellent slimy executive although he needed to revert to some cockney 'slimy limey' style to get there - still very effective. Not to mention some absolutely beautiful camera work and cinematography in the most beautiful place in the world. I also loved the punch-up in the bar: 'Don't F--- with the oil workers!' will get you nowhere with Steve... and btw be nice to eskimos. Highly recommended as entertainment and may even convince a teenager or two to care a little more about the environment. One last thing is that the film is very timely with one of the presidential candidates (guess which one) saying that it might be time to do some environmentally sound drilling in Alaska to ease the present oil crunch.
