Finally watched the Steven Seagal movie Against the Dark, hoping it would be as good as his old movies.
I used to love watching Hard to Kill and the like and thought it was going to be great mixing it up with Horror.
I was sadly mistaken!
Seagal is barely in it, maybe 15 min. out of the 90 min. runtime, then you don't really see much of the action you have in his other movies. Surely proving he was just a selling point for the film.
It's said to be a vampire flick but seems more like a fast-moving zombie let down.
I have seen worse, maybe I was expecting more from this film than I should have.
This was a straight to DVD release, now I know why.
