Half past dead
I would say this is one of the better Steven Seagal movies that I have seen. There was not much information given about the character, though that does not mean the character was shallow at all. Sasha (Steven Segal's Character) had some cool lines, cool scenes, and a good stage presence, but Sasha did not get some of the cooler stunts. I think Sasha was a little on the fat side. The one big fight seen Sasha was in, he fought like a girl. Though a girl with really good reflexes. Sasha slapped away the evil dudes punches easily, and then continued to slap him like he was Sasha's bitch. The plot was alright, and the evil villain was a good one. The second in command evil chick was hot, and had a really cool fight sence that Sasha was not in. Overall, this movie could be skipped, in search of better viewing.
Paul Walker played Chris Johnston who is a on again and off again archaeological student. Chris's father is the real archaeologist, who gets thrown back in time unable to come back. It is then up to Chris and his merry band of students to save chris's father. This movie is basically young Indiana Jones on time machine, not very promising. I have read the book and that is one reason why picked up the movie. While the book of this movie was great, the actual movie falls short. It had a large cast of characters, which most of them got killed of at some point in time. I think that was one of the larger problems with the movie. The large cast made it had to get to know the characters. When one of the characters died, instead of screaming, "Noooo." You find yourself either saying, I did not like that guy anyways, or who was that. This movie was well filmed well, with some nice shots. The main chick was not overly hot, the main character was not overly smart or particularly good with weapons, and the main villains were not overly evil. Though the French did win the battle in the movie, but I am too lazy to see if the battle happened in real life or if the French won. A solid flick that would fit a large number of people.
