    I tried to weasel out by saying that I was taking a nap at the time. But would you let me slide? Nooooo, besides I couldn't find a donkey taking a dump on Showtime!

    He either beats up or kills everyone by the end of the movie, and mutters eastern sayings about stuff. You can't understand what he's saying but it doesn't matter it doesn't make any sense even if you read it off the screen with subtitles. I don't think it's supposed to.

    I had to tune him out after the movie with the Jamaican gang, he’s only gotten worse since then.
    Too much ego for me.

    Pulled from another website...
    " "I came up in Detroit and there was a lot of blues. I didn’t learn blues from a ***** record; I learned it from the front porch. There were all these people from Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas and I learned from them.”

    "Now, Seagal and his family moved from Lansing, Michigan to Fullerton in California when he was 5 years old. So according to the fatman, all these old black blues players taught a 5 year old boy everything they knew, as if he was some spooky infant prodigy with the soul of a struggling black man (note: Seagal is half Irish and half Jew). Quote the Seagull: "

    “Little Milton hadn’t heard me play before. I was doing this Lightnin’ Hopkins thing. Milton looked at me and nodded, like he was trying to say, “This mutha ain’t white.” "

    The Russians can keep this turd.

    Has anyone ever seen Elvis and Steven in the same place, at the same time?

    You needn't be so abrupt about it!

    I’ve never liked his movies. His “acting” reveals that he knows darn well he isn’t in any danger of getting a butt whippin’ and not because he’s a superior warrior to his foe. He was in that one movie about some ecological thing in Alaska, I think, and the baddies were dumping and he goes and destroys their stuff and in reality, makes a much worse ecological disaster. I’d link the movie title but I just don’t care about him or his movies and I’ve never listened to him play guitar. Also, (there’s more) isn’t he some kind of dooshy sheriff wannabe in some reality cops-type show? Wadda tool.

    I liked Tom McLaughlin much better. At least he got his behind kicked before he eventually came back and messed up the baddies.

    That made me look up 'Fire Down Below'
    And I found this:

    The film was nominated for four Razzie Awards:[7]

    Why limit the desire for him to quit to just movies? Asking for a friend.

    The title of this thread made me laugh.

    I have never seen a Seagal movie. However, the 5 minutes I have seen of him on, whatever it was, was enough.

    Ain't Seagal thought of to be the poor man's Sylvester Stalone?

    My guess is that Steven ate Elvis.

    On the positive side, his first few films had some boss moves, where a guy comes at Seagal, who somehow whips him over and back in the air using only the guy's thumb. By the time I had finally tired of that, he had started looking pretty bad.

    I am thinking, I probably have seen a couple of his movies.

    They simply left no impression of any moment on me.

    Normally I have a number of individuals whose movies I am aggressively avoiding. But he never made a significant impression on me one way or the other. He was essentially irrelevant as a movie actor.

    He only appeared on my radar when he, after having been granted an Honorary Deputy Commission from Sheriff Harry Lee (in the Parish where my old office building stands), offended Lee and 'em so greatly they revoked the commission. Which took great evidence of sleaze to happen, I promise you. Sheriff Lee could be irascible and could get on your nerves but in the end he dealt fairly with me - with everyone. Seagal really did real wrong, to fall out with Harry Lee.

    Completely disagree. I want him to make more movies. It’s makes spotting subpar movies that can be skipped so much easier.

    I have a friend that used to run like Seagal with the air cutting hand movement and girly legs.:)

    Last I heard he was part Indian, part Japanese, part Italian, part Russian and part Black.
    He's a complex guy.

    I used to detail his car when I was a starving artist back in the late 80’s. Never met him, but his production office was filled with all the self-mythologizing, narcissistic, con-man claptrap you’d imagine. I can’t imagine how suffocating it must have been working in that office.
