Belly of the Beast



BELLY OF THE BEAST

I found this dvd in the pawn shop the one day for 2 dollars and decided to get it since I enjoy pointless action films. As another one of the straight to dvd movies from Segal I figured this would be like most straight to video action films, not that great. But I was pleasantly surprised with this film, it had the action of course, with fight scenes and things going BOOM. But it was the story line and some of the performances that made this movie good.

The story is as follows, Jake Hopper is a former C.I.A. agent who just happens to have a daughter that is friends with a senator's daughter. The two girls head off on vacation to Thailand with their boyfriends and get kidnapped by a terrorist group. Well as you can guess Segal [even in old age] heads into battle with the group, the local police force, and even his own old friends.

Director Ching Siu Tung did a pretty good job with this film, and along with Cinematographer Danny Novak made this film look good. Along with six producers, one of which being Avi Lerner, and writer James Townsend they all put together a really enjoyable movie. Is it a great film on the classic level, no, but it is good enough to just chill one day and watch. I recommend owning it, it is a pretty good flick.

Belly of the Beast is a action packed film starring Steven Seagal and directed by Ching Siu-tung.  This movie defines the word "action".  The director throws in violent gun play, wu xia sword play, kung-fu, black magic mysticism and a lot of bone crunching and blood spurting ultra violence.  Don't look for any realism in this film because it's all about action and mayhem.  Seagal's is heavily doubled in this film (making the violence all the more free flowing and kinetic. …
