Well, you already got it. Watch it and let us know. I think I missed it. Oh no, I guess I didn't. A little far fetched in the plot. But good bone crunching fights like you would expect. I liked most of his early movies. But somewhere around "Under Seige" I thought they started to get plots that were declining to "B" movie status. So I pretty well have quite seeing his flicks.

patriot? refresh my memory, i'm a little fuzzy on that one. i just bought "fire down below"for like 3.00 or something, and it was actually good.

Unless I have the wrong movie... He plays a veterarian who quite/washed out of the Army's medical corp at Fort Detrick (sp?). So he and his new Indian girlfriend, with her grandpa's traditional (which is always better anyways [rolleyes]) medicines, stop the Montana Militia from releasing a level 4 biohazard all over the place. But only at the last minute. Like I said, plot is out there a bit. But Segal likes to break bones. edited to add: Not a bad choice on Dollar night, or free on HBO/whoever. But not the best choice if you're going to pay full price.

Good point. LOL Well as long as you're paying for it, might as well watch it. BTW, I haven't had the tv hooked up in 7 or 8 years.

Pretty anti-militia story... Right wing nuts are the terrorists of the future crap. I like alot of Seagals movies, but this one was one of the absolute worst he's done (not taking story/anti militia into it, it sucks. I could overlook that for a movie if it were good. By my standards of liking Seagal movies it sucked...) I think it was a done for HBO movie, part of the reason for it sucking... Under Siege has got to be his best movie.

Yeah, pretty hard on the militia line. But I like his flicks. Worth watching.

It is a crap movie. The story is of the ATF arresting the militia leader after he declares on video that it is within his 2nd amendment rights to own a sawed off shotgun and proceeds to chop off a barrel below 18". He attempts to get even by inoculating himself with a stolen biowar agent with intent to infect the JBT's but it gets out of hand and spreads to the entire town. Then Segal comes to the rescue telling people to make flower tea that can cure the disease. Hahaha!

I dunno, I kind of dug it in a nothing better to do sort of way.

Does Segal whisper through the movie, or can he be understood? I guess talking soooo quiet is a dead give-away of a really tough guy. I wouldn't know, of course; I'm a scared little rabbit.[:E]

Fun to see what the militia could do if it wanted - seize control of a town from the military. Ah dreams.....

Segal is another of those actors, like Stallone, that made one good movie followed by a string of truly crappy films. His first film, "Above the Law" was pretty good. Since then he's grown fat and philosophical, and it's been all downhill. I saw him on Jay Leno one night peddling his own line of aroma therapy oils. Frankly, I think maybe he used too much axle grease in his hair and it soaked into his brain. Jeez, I wonder if Ebert needs a new partner. [:D]

I'd like to get a tape of Seagal and Norris just wasting the bad guys and no other "acting" scenes shown.

"Fire Down Below" was a tree hugging environmentalist BS movie.
