Revenge is a dish best served cold, or in a buffet line,
This review is from: Attack Force (DVD)
After watching Into the Sun earlier we had the opportunity to make it a double feature Saturday when Attack force also came on tv hours later. Being the Seagal fans we are this was an opportunity we simply couldn't pass up. It kind of felt like an old school Saturday when we used to spend our evening watching some hilarious flicks, except 2 key members were missing. None the less it brought Sid's mind back to the good old days which is always a welcomed occasion.
In Attack force Seagal plays Marshall Lawson and has unleashed his finest mullet to date. This thing is good, we want to be friends with it. It pretty much looks like his ponytail also gained weight forcing to stretch wide for a full mullet/Myers effect that cannot be contained. Aside from his mullet Marshall lost his strike force/competitive eating team by a group of government tested freaks. Marshall discovers the military secret and has to take on the US army along with the super warriors in a battle royal of hilarious proportions. Throughout the film there is a very strange dubbed effect going on. Sometimes Seagal's mouth will be moving but a different voice is heard not matching up with his lips. The voice sounds nothing like Seagals, much like the Pesci voice in the edited tv version of Casino. Awesome! 1 star right there for it's b dubbed goodness. You can tell a lot of effort went into this one.
Attack force earned itself 3 stars in our eyes despite mostly terrible reviews from the masses. Both this and Into the Sun got bashed but actually turned out to be pretty entertaining. You just have to love what Steven has become. He has pretty much become the obese version of Johnny Cash because he wears black everything in every movie he's done since the early 2000's. At least he was somewhat understandable despite the dubbed issue. Try to watch anything he does now and you'll need to hire a translator to understand anything he say. This one would have been enjoyed back in the old days filled with laughs, especially from Santa.
