On Deadly Ground (1994)


By Scott Goldfine

Steven Seagal stars and makes his directing debut in this action yarn about an army of one undermining an evil oil company in Alaska. Basically an update of “Billy Jack,” the film presents Seagal as the karate-chopping gun-wielding and bomb-detonating savior of the Eskimos and their land.

It’s all very politically correct, and also all very preposterous and unintentionally hilarious. Somehow Michael Caine, Joan ChenJohn C. McGinley and Billy Bob Thornton got roped into this loser. Rated R.
