An ecologically-minded action flick starring Steven Seagal as a former CIA agent turned ambassador for the Eskimos, killing all and sundry in his mission to stop the greed of a big oil corporation.

This "vision quest" adventure is one of them brainless action films which, even with your brain removed while watching, makes little sense and is simply complete nonsense. The performance from Seagal is notoriously bad, but he can be forgiven since he isn't exactly a graduate from RADA. The real embarrassment involved in this debacle is Michael Caine, who clearly involved himself for the money.

3/10
