  1. In its low grade way, this blithely brutal cops and drugs thriller is an efficient hot wire entertainment.

    Silver, manages the deft balance of making Seagal seem both genuinely courageous and charmingly blockheaded.

    Its pile-driving succession of set pieces comes at you with numbingly relentless efficiency, presumably in the hope that you won't notice or care how dumb it all is.
  4. It's a pastiche of pulpy elements culled from all the "Dirty Harry" movies you can think of.
  5. This movie, cynically and patronizingly aimed at Seagal's predominantly "urban" audience, is sad, tedious proof that even violent exploitation isn't what it used to be.

    The movie is more or less competent for being what it is. Of course, I could say the same of most brick walls -- but I'd hardly recommend that you pay eight bucks to sit in front of one for two hours.

    Viewers who sit through Exit Wounds should at least do themselves the favor of staying for the end credits, which feature some truly funny off-color banter between Anderson and Arnold on the latter's ostensible talkshow.

    Rocked, pimpin music. If someone knows the name of the song that they're playing in the club when the strippers are dancing, please let me know!!! Expand

    EW is pretty much a run-of-the-mill Steven Seagal flick. It does have al little heart that it glosses over for the most part during the traffic cop sequences. Aside from that Steve delivers his usual aikido fueled butt-kickings, shoot-outs and car chases. Oh yeah and it has DMX just in case aikido fueled butt-kickings, shoot-outs and car chases aren't your cup of tea. Because DMX sells tickets I guess. Anyways Jill Hennessy was great but her role was miniscule. Expand
