Product Description

A hard core Interpol Agent is assigned to an Eastern European task force to target gun trafficking and dope running throughout the Balkans. While investigating a Russian gun dealer, his team is caught in a bloody street war between a Gypsy gang and the Russians, leaving one task force member dead. Fueled with vengeance, he leads us on an action packed thrill ride while avenging his friend's death

Amazon.com

Steven Seagal is back to break bones and take names in this primitive yet effective tale of honor among thieves. This time around, the Big Guy (who also wrote the script) is a member of the International Drug Task Force bent on avenging the death of his partner by an up-and-coming Balkan mobster with a penchant for barely clad female henchmen. As the resulting bodies begin to block the flow of Eastern European traffic, Seagal receives unexpected help in his vendetta from an older gangster repelled by the new wave of crime. Lauro Chartrand, a former stuntman making his directorial debut, relies a little too heavily on swooshing camerawork and stuttering edits, yet still manages to deliver a fair number of inventively staged action sequences, anchored by the strange yet undeniable charisma of his leading man. Seagal may be settling into his autumn years--these days, the husky star doesn't so much move during fight scenes as draw thugs into his gravitational pull--but he still knows how to bring the pain. --Andrew Wright

I wish I could meet Steven Seagal, not only to ask for his autograph but also to sit down with him and discuss what's made his recent string of movies so disappointing for even a devoted fan like me. I would use "Born to Raise Hell" here as an example, being sure to compliment the film's strengths but also making clear to him exactly what about it sucks. I'm not so naïve to believe that Seagal is in total creative and technical control of each of his features, but perhaps I could convince him to take a more hands-on role in their production and perhaps aikido-chop the idiots who are truly responsible for the lackluster nature of some of these movies.

The plot: an international drug task force operating out of Romania, headed by ex-Interpol agent Samuel Axel (Seagal), sets its sights on bringing down the operations of a deadly and sadistic gang of drug traffickers...

People who don't like Steven Seagal by default are going to hate this movie. Seagal occupies most of the scenes (perhaps still making up for his absence throughout most of Against the Dark?) and his character is boisterous, arrogant, and most of the other characters cow to him in one way or another. Surprisingly, I found myself appreciating this: a supercilious Steven is still more fun to watch than the detached, bored-looking dope he played for a while in movies like Flight of Fury. However, whatever effort he seems to have made for this film is marred by extensive dubbing of his voice - something not present in his movies to this degree since the picture I just mentioned.

Somehow, through over a decade of direct-to-video disasters, I remain a Seagal fan, hopeful there may be one last great film coming before he retires for good. Perhaps, as I've watched each of his low budget losers - films such as Out for a Kill or Submerged - some small part of my psyche manages to wax nostalgic over blockbusters of the past, such as Under Siege and The Glimmer Man, in an effort to deflect the pain inflicted by witnessing a great martial artist fade away into a caricature of himself. While Born to Raise Hell does little to dispell this trend, I assure you it is a watchable film which won't disappoint most fans. If Seagal did, indeed, write the screenplay himself, his ideas weren't bad ones but could have been better structured, and the characters needed more rapport with each other. The editing was a little puzzling, with freeze frames coming up at inappropriate times, but did not completely distract from the thrust of the film. The fight scenes were actually decent this time around, especially the fight scene in the restaurant which clearly did not use stupid gimmicks like speeding up the film or cutting so quickly you couldn't tell what happened - it was all Seagal, doing aikido again. His films need more of that. Overall, I'm "OK" with the film, though it wasn't the great come back gem for which I still yearn. Urban Justice remains his best recent release, the film that left my soul ignited anew with hope Seagal is on some sort of come back trail - the path may be skewed, and it may be a very slow burn - so I keep watching.

The DVD and packaging was fine, but the storyline and the acting was not Seagal's best work. Story moved slow. I noticed that you rarely saw Seagal's face doing the action... like there was a double doing most of his martial arts. And there wasn't that many martial arts in this movie compared to his other movies. And the really weird thing about this movie was the constant narration (I assume from Seagal's main character) but it didn't sound like Seagal to me. It was whispery like he whispers, but even more so. Though Seagal seems to get quieter and more whispery with every picture, his narration and even his main character lines were delivered too quietly for me to understand. I don't know if they couldn't get the mic levels up high enough to capture what he was saying or just that he was mumbling. I had to watch the movie with the subtitles on to understand what he was saying in the movie. This is no Exit Wounds, Half Past Dead or Fire Down Below. Those are some good Steven Seagal movies.

Mr. Steven Seagal does (now) in fact have a giant head ,,, and a gargantuan torso to boot ,,, but the movie was awesome ,,, a classic Seagal action flick ,,, which should be expected since he wrote and produced it.

Through the first half I thought it might be low-key, below average and I might be disappointed ,,, but I was wrong!!! The movie "carried well" from start to finish; very well written, acted (by all) and directed.

I found the (international) acting to be top-notch and the screenplay had no extra bovine crap, no melodramatic bs thrown in for the female audience member ,,, except maybe for Seagal taking a few moments to satisfy his woman. It was brief and realistically erotic.

All in all a very good and very entertainiing movie.

Above all I loved the international scenery and the outstanding international actors!!!
