Matt must learn the politics of the underworld and grapple with his role as hired muscle. He soon realizes that there is more going on than meets the eye. As the pressures of his new world come crashing down around him, he finally finds the red

Amazon.com

Steven Seagal muscles his way through Pistol Whipped, another brutal action flick. This time Seagal is a boozing, compulsive gambler forced by a mysterious stranger to assassinate mob guys and corrupt cops. Naturally, this makes it hard for him to be a doting father to his adoring young daughter. Pistol Whipped has some twists to its plot, but this is all moot--you either like Steven Seagal or you don't. If you do, this is one of the better of his straight-to-video oeuvre. Seagal's attempt to be tender is laughable, but the story isn't completely predictable, the supporting cast isn't bad (Lance Henriksen, Aliens, brings some elegant menace to the proceedings), and though the martial-arts scenes are brief, they're not as choppily edited as in some of his other movies. If you don't like Steven Seagal, you'll find his bloated, wooden presence as repulsive and hateful as it was in every other movie he's ever made. He has two expressions--squinty and scowly--and they're increasingly difficult to tell apart. His one cinematic quality is a lumbering menace, and for his fans, that seems to be enough. For them, Pistol Whipped has plenty of lumbering and scowling on display. --Bret Fetzer

With Pistol Whipped, Seagal has made an effort to make two good DTV's in a row with Urban Justice being the previous release, but he generally fails. Pistol Whipped is more of a thriller than an action film and as such is a little slow to get going. It also has the strongest cast that Seagal has worked with for some time. The unfortunate thing about this is that it glaringly shows up Seagal's inability as an actor.

When Seagal has confrontational dialogue or is in a scene with another actor that could lead to a physical confrontation, Seagal lights up the screen with the confidence he exudes as a martial arts expert which made him a star in his early films, he is truly believable as someone who could snap your neck in 2 seconds. When he has normal character dialogue to deliver in Pistol Whipped, it is flat, unemotional and boring to listen to. Seagal makes no choices as an actor as to how to convey any emotion in his lines, there is no life in his performance during these scenes. No one watches Seagal films for the acting but it is disappointing to have to watch someone do a job and see the look of complete disinterest in their face.

Seagal again beds a very young woman in Pistol Whipped and there is also some of the ego massaging dialogue that appears in many of these DTV's spoken to Seagal. I'm surprised the actress delivering the lines could keep a straight face, this occurs at a breakfast table after a night of supposedly hot passion with Seagal's character.

Overall, one positive thing that director Roel Reine has done is to pull the camera back during the choreographed fight scenes.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Let Me Ask You Something..." April 27, 2008
Format:DVD
Another great movie recommended by Sid the Elf!

Have been a fan of Steven Segal since he's been kicking but in the late 80's as slick Italian cop with attitude. This more recent movie takes a different direction with Segal's trademark attitude, and it surprisingly works.

First thing I noticed about this movie is that Segal looks awful! Looks like he's been in a real bad accident and had tons of reconstructive surgery on his face. But alas, this imitation of Elvis' famous I-Just-Died-On-The-Toilet bloated look is just time catching up with the actor. That and the frizzy hairpiece he's now wearing.

The movie itself is classic Segal: snapping arms, blurring punches, and a scowl that still scares. His most famous--if not most used line--of `Let me ask you something," is used more than 20 times in this movie. Count for yourself and see. We are also blessed with the guy most unlikely to bed a girl, as Segal snatches a girl from a bar. Putting on more than 50 pounds since his slimmer days, this gives us "average Joe's" hope for an unlikely future. And we also see Segal's tender side--a great change from the wife-beater we all know--as he tries to be a good father to his daughter, despite being a degenerate gambler who owes too many people too much money.

I was highly impressed with this movie, learning once again to trust Sid the Elf and their many reviews. Always a skeptic, I like to see for myself. Glad I did. Segal still has it, bloated-with-hairpiece or not!

5.0 out of 5 stars Back On The Right Track February 10, 2008
Format:DVD
Pistol Whipped (aka Marker) is a good continued effort by Steven Seagal to making good direct to DVD action releases. Most of his direct releases have not been as good as his earlier films. The problem mostly being that Seagal was not doing his own fight scenes (obvious body doubles) and not doing all his voice work. Urban Justice was a return to form for Seagal by delivering on the action front and doing his fight scenes and vocal dubbing. Pistol Whipped is, in my opinion, more of what we want from Seagal. While not having a high budget to work with, this movie still contains the action you will want from a Seagal film. Here's a brief breakdown of the plot. Matt (Steven Seagal) is an ex-cop who is a compulsive gambler and battles with alcoholism. Matt is divorced and has a daughter whom, though he loves her very much, isn't always there for her. He reaches the million dollar mark with his debts and accepts jobs from the "old man" (Lance Henriksen) who bought Matt's debts in exchange for some assassination work. Needless to say some things get complicated and lines are crossed. The fight scenes are well staged and it is all Seagal during the fights. No stunt doubles. There are occasionaly stand-ins for certain scenes such as long shots of Seagal's charactor walking down the street or a rooftop shot, but nothing that detracts from the story or action. You have to be looking for it to notice it as it's not very distracting. There is also no dubbing of Seagal's voice in this movie as there was in past releases. Overall, this is a good acion flick harking back towards the days of Marked For Death and Hard To Kill. I give this movie 5 stars by way of what it is. It is a Seagal action flick, and as such, it is enjoyable. This is not a 5 star film in the way Departed or Wizard Of Oz is. If you like Seagal films or liked Urban Justice, I suggest giving it a try.

Rated ( R ) (strong violence, profanity, sexual content, nudity)

4.0 out of 5 stars "If I want any lip, I'll rip it off your [...] face" August 7, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Unlike his fellow action heroes Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren, Steven Seagal never got to work with John Woo, but his opportune teaming with director Roel Reine (Death Race 2) brought the Buddhist Bonecrusher about as close to "heroic bloodshed" subgenre as he's going to get in one of the best DTV titles he'd ever release... Okay, the comparison to Woo is a matter of opinion, but the mere fact that a Steven Seagal movie can still feel inspired is noteworthy. "Pistol Whipped" is a stellar follow-up to his previous Urban Justice and simply one of the most unique Seagal flicks you're ever going to see. Sure, it's still just a Steven Seagal movie, but at long last, it's one that can actually be used to attract new fans.

The story: ex-policeman Matt Conlin (Seagal) lost his job and family to the vices of gambling and alcohol when he's approached by the agent of a mysterious, gentlemanly "Old Man" looking to put his lethal talents to use (Lance Henriksen, Aliens). Matt finds new purpose in life as a hitman attacking the city's criminal underbelly, but finds himself at odds with honor and duty when his family is dragged into the mix.

"Pistol Whipped" was written by J.D. Zeik, the pen behind Ronin, and when interpreted by director Reine's able hand, the script makes for the most complex and dramatically intense outing that the usually one-note Seagal has ever been on.
