Critic Reviews for A Dangerous Man

All Critics (3)

"A Dangerous Man" isn't one of Seagal's best movies, but it's far from his worst.

July 14, 2020 | Rating: C | Full Review…

There is something unarguably beguiling and heartwarming about the refusal of Seagal movies to bow to the sands of time and their adherence to formula, but unfortunately it's not enough to carry 90 long minutes.

...another routine Seagal thriller.

Audience Reviews for A Dangerous Man

A Dangerous Man is probably the best thing Seagal has done in his last decade and a half of direct to video output... and by "best" I mean it's a passable action flick; decently shot, lots of guns and explosions and karate chops and gruesome deaths. And it also keeps the cheese and juvenile plot structure to a bare minimum. Once again Seagal is a super-duper-secret-top-ex-military-commando with nothing to lose (but with a heart of gold) who gets involved in some thing involving a bag of money and some girl's kidnapped uncle. Fortunately, this film functions more or less like an excellent Hong Kong action-thriller that somebody decided to shoehorn Seagal into.

Steven Segal has found new was to make his enemies SUFFER...LMAO! When in the world is he going to accept that he is a grey haired man...and let some in! Regardless...he is in full form with an extremely young cast in this save the hostage and get me my revenge thriller... It forces you to pay attention, while he goes to work to get his life back in order. Same Segal...new ways to show pain. It was okay.
