Plot: Archeology Professor Robert Burns is on location leading an important dig in the ancient ruins on the Far Eastern Chinese border. He accidentally discovers that the Chinese Mafia, the Tong, is using his newly discovered ancient Chinese artifacts to hide and smuggle narcotics across the border. Robert immediately tries to flee with his assistant and narrowly manages to escape the pursuing Tong but not without a heavy price. His loyal assistant is killed and he is framed with the evidence at the Chinese border by the Chinese military and U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency. He is locked up in a Chinese prison where he is guilty until proven innocent. His loving wife Maya vows to help get him out of jail. The DEA finally convinces the Chinese military that Robert may be of more help to them outside jail by leading them to the real smugglers. Once he leaves his Chinese prison cell Robert would rather enjoy his freedom back in the U.S. and keep his past behind him, but The Tong catches up to him and threatens not only his life but that of his wife. They threatened the wrong man. Secrets of Robert's past start to emerge as he unleashes his awesome martial arts fighting abilities to defend himself and his wife. Now that The Tong and their drug cartel know who he is they will stop at nothing to kill Robert to protect their own corrupt interests. To avenge the lives of loved ones he has lost, Robert must hunt down, pursue and find each of the Tong members. In a classic homage to Chinese martial arts films, he is involved in intense hand to hand combat including sword fighting, guns, car chases, and other ingenious forms of fighting to mame and kill these Tong members. He deciphers their ancient coded Tong tattoos which leads him to their don, Wong Dai- The Emperor; the man who controls an empire of crime and corruption across many borders. As an added twist Robert discovers upon meeting Wong Dai, that the evil man himself has been manipulating our protagonist in order to have him kill Wong Dai's own Tong members and thus, secure the ill gotten gains of Wong Dai's empire of crime for himself.

This film has such corny dialog; I was convinced it was written by Segal, himself. Mix this in with Segal's desperation to be perceived as a master of all things the all-knowing, fortune cookie reciting Professor Burns who also happened to be the greatest art thief in the world before he decided he just wanted to be an acclaimed professor and the Kung Fu Fantasy fight in the barber's shop and you have a film that'll live in infamy alongside Battlefield Earth and No Escape as must-haves for all Trash Movie collectors.Steven is well beyond his prime, and no amount of tanning or <more>
polo-necks-acting-as-neck-disguiser/supporter can hide it. A visit to the hairdresser also seems in order. However, there is something irrepressible about Steven Segal.I challenge anyone to watch this movie without laughing! Brilliant!
I'm not sure if you've ever seen a train wreck. I haven't, but I'm sure it is totally awesome, just like Out For A Kill. If you were expecting a bad review for this movie look elsewhere because this movie rocks so hard that there is no movie screen on earth big enough to capture it's power.The easiest way to measure a Seagal movie is to apply the "Seagal Movie Checklist" so here it goes:|Arm breaking - Yes | Seagal never gets hit - Yes | Boobs - Yes | Bullet Cam - Yes | SlowMo shots of seagal "powering up" - Yes | Seagal in prison - Yes | Seagal <more>
befriending a black inmate and being a true "homeboy" - Yes | His inexplicably hot wife gets whacked sending him on a one man rampage - Yes | Psychedelic prayer scene - No | Decapitations - Yes | Seagal preemptively attacks everyone - Yes |Aside from no psychedelic prayer scene this movie has it all. I have seen almost every Seagal movie but this is one for the ages. All the plot holes get filled with ass kicking served up by Seagal himself or hot chicks getting naked. Which is much better than a logical plot line. This is one of the rare movies that I will never turn down the offer to watch. There is nothing bad one can possibly say about this movie, period.
Steven's best kick ass flick since Under Siege 2 (by RCF23)
Don't get me wrong, Steven Seagal has made some pretty good movies since Under Siege 2 came out in 1995, but Out For A Kill completely takes the Aikido battling ass kicker to the next level. Steven methodically and completely destroys each of the Chinese Tong assassins with awesome skill and coolness, akin to his early 90's days. But I must admit that I found even more joy in these battle scenes because the general public and Hollywood has written Steven off as a serious action film star; can they be more wrong. Steven totally dominates every scene he is in, even those scenes when he <more>
is not engaged in deadly sword battles against two samurais, or snapping assholes necks with the greatest of pleasure. Check out Steven when he goes to get a haircut and some Chinese assassin attacks him mimicking the moves and styles of Ray Park playing the Toad in X-Men. Steven has no problem dispensing with the mothereffer. For anyone reading this, you must be at least a mild fan- please buy this flick. Don't rent it, because you'll want to watch it again and again. Nice flick. The demise of the bad guy boss is absolutely priceless, unexpected and very funny. At least I think so. Thanks for reading this. Rick Ford, # 1 Seagal fan, over and out.
Full of dramatic and tense action and awesome and very powerful fight scenes (by nims-1975)
Out For A Kill is a very good Martial Arts Thriller starring Steven Seagal as Professor Robert Burns, Michelle Goh as Tommie Ling and Corey Johnson as Ed Grey. Professor Robert Burns played by Steven Seagal is a well known Professor and Archaeologist and is an unwitting accomplice in a foild Chinese Cocaine deal. He is provoked and wrongly imprisoned by some malicious Chinese criminals who try to attack him and threaten him wherever he goes and also have blown up his house and killed his wife. He manages to escape to take his revenge and prove his innocence. This film has tense action and <more>
excellent and very powerful fight scenes. Out For A Kill maybe different to some of Seagals earlier films such as Above The Law,, Hard To Kill, Marked For Death, Out For Justice, Under Siege, On Deadly Ground, Under Siege 2, The Glimmer Man, Fire Down Below and Exit Wounds which were awesome and a lot better, but this film is definitely not a crap film. It's a film which has some excellent and very powerful Martial Art fight scenes. The film also has some excellent acting by Steven Seagal, Michelle Goh and Corey Johnson and I really enjoyed watching the film. I don't why this film has been underrated and given a low score of 3.4/10 and negative reviews by other users. It definitely deserves a higher score not a low score. This film wasn't excellent but it definitely was an in between very good and excellent one.
This Steven Seagal movie is good! (by Movie Nuttball)
I really liked Out for a Kill! Its one of the most different Steven Seagal films! Like The Foreigner, it is directed by Michael Oblowitz! I am starting to like his direction and his approach to movies! Out for a Kill is very action packed. Some of the scenes are just simply incredible like for example when the camera shows a very close up look the machine gun and the bullets that go thru the jeep! Seagal's fighting was awesome! He looked really neat in the back jacket and blue jeans. Honestly I thought the dialog was good and especially from Seagal and I found Myself smiling about it <more>
because he said it good! I think he is fine actor. The sword fight scene was really the highlight fight but there are some other interesting fights as well! For those of you who like it there was bit of nudity in strip joints but nothing major because it shows it very fast and one little part with Seagal's character's wife but it is long at all. I could give a rat's behind about all of that! Anyway, Another thing that was very different was the intros of the characters of some of the villains. It showed bios and the camera freezed for a few seconds so you can read it! It also showed the title of the location just about every time the film went to a new place. Overall I think it is a good movie, a little like The Foreigner but a different film! If you are a hard core Steven Seagal fan give Out for a Kill a try because in My opinion its a good Seagal movie!
Delve into the Chinese Underworld with Steven Seagal by your side and Michelle Goh's soft voice narrating the story. Provocative and Compelling!Steven Seagal is archaeologist Robert Burns; renowned in his field and wanted by the Chinese Mafia, the Tong. It seems he's uncovered some very valuable artifacts in the ancient eastern ruins of China and they would like to see them used for more lucrative endeavors.When Burns is framed for the murder of his assistant, he ends up being used by the American government as the carrot before the nose of the Tong.His fight to the Emperor of the <more>
Tong is quite literally some of the most explosive martial arts assaults on film this year!With Direction by Michael "Hounddog" Oblowitz, it surely wasn't what I expected. Although his direction of Seagal in "The Foreigner," 2003 and did a very fine job of it, I have otherwise been unimpressed with his talents, until now.Very Well Done! The storyline is plausible, the backdrop is beautiful and exigent, the sets were very well furnished and added immensely to the atmosphere of the movie, and the casting choices were outstanding.Seagal just gets better and better. His acting is exemplary; not at all like some of the other so-called martial artist/actors out there. He never misses a beat. Every strike is dead on, every step is in place, and his action sequences are never slow, fake or "hokey."Sorry people, but I'm NOT a fan of the '70's "Flying Through The Air, Doing Impossible Leaps and Throwing Magick Out Of Our Hands" martial arts flicks. Movies like THAT are "flicks," not movies. Michelle Goh really shines in her performance. I hope to see more of her talents on the big screen.It gets an 8/10 from...the Fiend :.
quirky, crafty martial arts hallmark (by Cristi_Ciopron)
The director is a No Wave artist, arguably the heir of Waters and Jarmusch; his movie is a jewel, it has cool and often lyrical cityscapes, a carefully made work, also a hallmark of action tropes: awesome swordplay, enjoyable choreography. Seagal plays a streetwise professor of archeology and the movie begins as if this was Seagal's 'Indiana J.' . The plot takes place on the Sino-Kazakh border, in Connecticut, in Chinatown and in Sofia, and at the general headquarter of the Chinese mob, where the families have shaken hands; the story is remembered by the Chinese policewoman. <more>
Smuggling leads to vendetta: very generic tropes, but always intriguingly treated, with a lyrical freshness. The movie was nicely crafted by a No Wave director.In the previous decade, Seagal enriched the B cinema hallmark with very good outings; the DTV market worked as a quieter place where goodish things have been made.The ending credits claim that the director made this movie for his son; and if his work of stylish B cinema is undeniably lovingly crafted, the very generic plot of revenge, with its over the top idea a professor, albeit one with a peculiar past, beheads the Chinese smuggling cartel shows he wished a fairy tale; otherwise, Burns leaves the cemetery, where his murdered wife has just been laid to rest, hand in hand with his new girlfriend. This refreshing movie is very good, often intriguing, suspenseful.
