All Critics (2)

Steven Segal--still chopping (it's a struggle), still kicking (it's exhausting), still in a career slump (it's over, cookie).

February 3, 2006 | Rating: D

Make no mistake, Black Dawn isn't good by any stretch of the imagination - but it's certainly a substantial improvement over some of Seagal's more recent efforts.

Audience Reviews for Black Dawn

The movie is very much in the style of the Jason Bourne movies with the formula agency spooks and espionage stuff. The first and last 20 minutes are pretty good and even though the middle section drags quite a bit the movie still never had that feeling of being terrible like Today You Die. The bad guys aren't too clich├ęd while John Pyper-Ferguson is a welcome casting, even though he seems to be putting on a bizarre accent. The fight sequences, which are extremely few and brief, are poor. The poorness of the fights however are due to the fact that Steven Seagal isn't present in any of them, even though his character is involved. However there is a great car chase and the movie also includes some impressive stunts.
