It's hard not to feel elated and highly anticipatory when one sees the
DVD cover for Maximum Conviction, but how does the movie itself hold
up? The Plot: Two ex-special forces commandos (Austin and Seagal)are
hired to decommission a military prison only to find themselves under
siege by a squadron of baddies trying to abduct a certain female
The Pros: After the first half hour, the action is frequent and plentiful. Both stars perform admirably, especially Austin who is slowly but surely earning his acting chops. Minimal to no doubling for Seagal and a complete lack of dubbing! Michael Pare is a decent villain, as well.
The Cons: The Stars have very little screen time together, oddly enough. Steven Seagal truly does need to try and shed some weight (and this is coming from a jaded fan). The two stars didn't quite need their younger teammates as all they did was provide cover and hog up screen time.
I would say, definitely worth a watch if you're a fan of either or both but I might hesitate on a purchase as this entertaining film is fun but flawed.
When former black ops operative Cross (Seagal) and his partner Manning (Austin) are assigned to decommission an old prison, they must oversee the arrival of two mysterious female prisoners. Before long, an elite force of mercenaries assault the prison in search of the new arrivals. As the true identities of the women are revealed, Cross realizes he's caught in the middle of something far bigger than he had imagined.
