Marked For Death Blu-Ray Review

Marked For Death Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: He’s a good cop. In a bad mood. Furiously paced and visually striking, Marked for Death puts action star Steven Seagal (Driven To Kill, Under Siege) up against a deadly Jamaican drug posse. Just retired from the Drug Enforcement Agency, John Hatcher (Seagal) returns to his hometown and quickly discovers that drugs have infiltrated his old neighborhood. Determined to drive the dealers out, Hatcher crosses paths with a ferocious Jamaican druglord who vows that Hatcher and his family are now “marked for death.” Widely considered by fans and critics alike to be one of Seagal’s very best films Marked for Death is pure action, loaded with fight scenes integrating heavy elements of aikido.

Review: There are only a few notable action stars that delved into the martial arts genre back in the day.  Steven Seagal is back in the public eye with his hilarious and a little bit sad show Steven Seagal: Lawman.  Now, Fox is releasing the classic Seagal film 'Marked for Death' on Blu-Ray!  

I won't lie, a lot of martial arts film that I watched was bad.  I mean baaad.  Seagal's films actually tend to hold up well.  Marked For Death is a good movie.  His action quality is good and his low-tone acting is unique enough to be interesting.

The Blu-Ray transfer is overall pretty good.  Some of the darks are fuzzy and there is some underlying grain, but its a nice release.
