Exit Wounds (DVD)
Fifty kilos of heroin have disappeared from the property vaults of the toughest precinct in Detroit, and no one knows how. When irreverent urban detective Orin Boyd (Steven Seagal) is reassigned to the citys worst police division, he stumbles on an inside drug operation ... and the one person who can help uncover the truth is not a cop. But the gangster who holds the key to the truth isnt what he seems. Now, with enemies everywhere and only one chance to survive, cop and gangster join forces to reveal the deadly police corruption.]]>
One can always count on Steven Seagal to act as the repository of yesterday's action-film clichés, and Exit Wounds is yet another case in point. Seagal plays Detroit cop Orin Boyd, a lone wolf lawman who gets in the middle of his precinct's losing battle against police corruption. Taking on a powerful but crooked cop named Montini (David Vadim)--who is busy making deals with a rich gangster (DMX)--Boyd soon sends fists and feet flying while Tom Arnold provides the comic relief. Director Andrzej Bartkowiak surely had less fun guiding Seagal through slow-motion fight sequences than he did Jet Li in Romeo Must Die, but as compensation he gets to work with the mesmerizing DMX, who looks as though he has leading-man possibilities. Plenty of gratuitous gore, awful cop banter, and miles of cleavage courtesy of Jill Hennessy, who plays Boyd's tough-as-nails boss. --Tom Keogh

Segal plays Orin Boyd, A good cop, one of the few that is not corrupt. After breaking the rules to save a vice president he is sent to a lower class precinct to learn some manners and earn his badge again. After proving his valor he is re assigned to work with a partner (Isaiah Washington) they are on the look for Drug rings around the neighborhood, they suspect something funny about a man named Latrell Walker (DMX) he is seeing doing dealings with cops and other people. Segal later finds out that Walker is with the good guys, and indeed wants to bring down the corruption...but who do you trust?
The movie is a bit unoriginal in some areas, but Seagal, DMX and the cast do a decent job with what they have. a thing I disliked was that there was to much wire work on the fight scenes. They at least managed to keep the Seagal's doubles minimal. Definitely worth owning even if you're not a Segal fans.
MY PERSONAL RATING: 3 ½ OUT OF 5
The 15th turns out to be a very seedy shop, with more corrupt cops than straight ones looks like our boy Boyd has arrived not a moment too soon. Isaiah Washington plays his awestruck partner, Jill Hennessy is his flinty boss, and hip-hop hero DMX is a mystery man who defeats Seagal in hand-to-hand combat. There is a lot of action, and Seagal fans will love it. The only extra on the DVD worth anything is the Music video; DMX's "Ain't No Sunshine"
As I said, a pretty typical Seagal movie with direct fights where the bad guys get hurt badly. It is a good action movie and fun to watch. Perhaps not Seagal's best movie though.
