As big as Steven Seagal has gotten, it takes a mighty big man to look even bigger than the former Hollywood action star onscreen. But whoever they got to play the black con in this clip from Seagal’s latest, “Maximum Conviction”, certainly suffices. More importantly, I sincerely hope the over-the-top shakicam that’s present in this brief scene isn’t indicative of the movie as a whole, because if it is, then I’m going to be incredibly annoying. It’s bad enough when Hollywood directors do it, I don’t need this crap in my B-movie entertainment as well.
When former black ops operative Tom Steele (Steven Seagal) and his partner Manning (Steve Austin) are assigned to decommission an old prison, they must oversee the arrival of two mysterious female prisoners. Before long, an elite force of mercenaries assault the prison in search of the new arrivals. As the true identities of the women are revealed, Steele realizes he’s caught in the middle of something far bigger than he had imagined. Fists will fly and bones will shatter as the situation escalates with every passing minute.
Also starring Steve Austin, Michael Paré, Aliyah O’Brien, and Bren Foster.
Arriving on DVD and Blu-ray November 6th.
