Not great, not horrible. A different kind of film for Steven Segal. Bad news is he wasn't in too many scenes. There are creatures which are a combination of vampire/zombie. He and his team have a sole purpose of ridding the city of these virus-created creatures. They encounter survivors in a dark, spooky hospital who are working their way through by a former intern whose never really sure where they are. As usual, they start separating at which point a few of them get killed. Some guy from the State Dept. is supporting and communicating with Segal and his team and wants to make sure they are not in the area before it gets sterilized, which is what the military wants to do. They don't seem to care if any survivors or the hunters are free of the area. A few good fighting scenes, average acting, ok special effects. It had Steven Segal in it and that was good enough for me.

Lol it's a movie that you have to expect to not be that good but if you look at like this should be pretty funny then you will enjoy it there were some but not many good part Segal doesn't really fight much at all but uses a sword I gave it 3 stars because I read review"s so I was ready for it but I have almost all of his movies I still think MARKED FOR DEATH and the older ones are the best but if you watch it thinking is going to have a lot of action well you will fall asleep so if you buy it remember that it's not anything like his other movies for the price it was good

QUESTION: What is more unstoppable that Steven Seagal? ANSWER: Steven Seagal with a sword..

The main reason I have not watched any Steven Seagal movies in many years is because his character is always untouchable. How many times can we watch Seagal slice through the biggest and baddest villians like a hot knife through butter and never even get a single scratch? It's a boring formula, and drains all suspense from the movie.. because you know our hero will never even get touched by anyone of anything.

I bought Against The Dark hoping it would be a little bit different. After all, it was a total change up for Steven Seagal as far as movie type. He wouldn't be that dumb as to bring the same old untouchableness into a horror movie would he???? But he did... and right before I put the movie in I said laughingly, "I'll bet Seagal has the same look he always has in every movie.. He will be invincible and never even break a sweat. He will always be in total control and never have a finger laid on him." And I was so right...

Even in a world where an unknown virus has turned most of the population into vampire like creatures, Stevie wears his same old hide kicking grimace and obliterates everything in his path with ease. He never gets scared, never flinches and has the whole situation by the short hairs.

The acting is bad in this movie as well.. When Stevie delivers his lines he sounds like he is trying to be a gangsta.. other times he sounds like Fog Horn Leg Horn doing a Steven Seagal impression. And yet sometimes, he reminds me of my Uncle Louie when he was a bit younger and had teeth. Stevies moves were bad, was he injured or something????? All he did was the same few swish, swish, swishes with his sword and slash the vampires necks..

The only reason I can that this stinker of a movie was ever made was to capitalize on the zombie/vampire monster craze. The movie stinks of being a quick production just to cash in. The plot, production, cinematography, soundtrack, acting, pretty much every aspect of this film shows obvious signs of being a rush job. I have seen bad videos before, but none that have such a lack of commitment to story and concept I saw from Against the Dark.

Where to begin? The first and foremost is the story. Even most bad movies have a coherent plot. Against the Dark's plot is essentially this: Run into abandoned hospital, get attacked by vampires in various scenes, get out of hospital. That's it. The only motivation in this movie is to try and not die. The only conflicts in this movie are the surprise attacks by vampires and a completely useless plot device about the military wanting to blow up the building by the designated time. There is an attempt at a plot twist regarding the vampires, but it is so woefully utilized you may as well ignore it. Add to that some ridiculous plot holes and various inconsistencies and you have one dull mess of a story.

So what's the story? It's a mix between I am Legend and Blade (or The Last of Us for you video gamers out there). Most of Earth's population have been infected with something that turns them into flesh eating vampires. Yes I said flesh eating vampires... they don't drink much blood, but they love eating humans. Don't ask me why they are called vampires. Maybe because they supposedly only come out at night. Anyway there are just a few people left and some of them go into a hospital to get medical supplies. Turns out the hospital is overrun with vampires and the only way out is some door that can only open if the power is still on.

I love Seagal films. I am a Seagal fan. I collect his movies . . . BUT, this is the worst I've ever seen. If I didn't collect his film and hadn't already paid for it, I would throw this in the trash!
