Not Half Past Bad. A Well Done Action Film.

"Those who relish negatively reviewing Seagal's films, an perhaps understandably, had a field day with "Attack Force", are going to be quite dissappointed with "Field of Fury", because it is in fact a pretty decent film. If Seagal had hit a low with "Attack Force", then he has reedeemed himself quite a bit with this new film and restored his credibility and integrity to a respectable degree. Interestingly enough, it is the same director, just an infinitely better film. The story logic is coherent and well paced, Seagal looks fitter and healthier than he has in recent memory, the use of stunt doubles is minimal, if at all, the editing is quite good, the soundtrack is classically themed and effective, the fight scenes are not extensive but well done and fullfilling, with Seagal in better form than we have seen him in a while, the supporting cast is quite capable. Also, although there is some voice dubbing. This time, there is a small amout of voice dubbing, but the dubbing is done well enough so that it sound almost exactly like Seagal, and it is hard to discern the difference. The buzz was that this film was quite superior to his recent films and although I approached it with some trepidation, I can attest to the fact that this film is a welcome surprise, and is a quite entertaining and well made action film. I suppose the truest review would come from someone who I watched this film with, and who is not a particular fan of Seagal to begin with, and yet admitted that compared to Seagal's recent offerings, that this film was "impressive" and "good enough for theatrical release," which I must agree with. Given a more substantial budget, and a more capable director, Seagal could even do better, but this film was not half bad, or not half past bad should I say. I recommend it."

"FLIGHT OF FURY really boils down to a remake of Clint Eastwood's Firefox leavened with a little of Lou Gossett Jr.'s Iron Eagle. In FLIGHT OF FURY, Steven Seagal plays the world's greatest Special Ops soldier who is sent to recover the United States' prototype "active stealth" fighter jet (a jet with a cloaking device that renders it invisible) which has been stolen by a traitorous pilot for sale to a group of Middle Eastern terrorists (led by a British expat).
There are a slue of high pyrotechnic explosions, a little gratuitous lesbianism that adds nothing to the storyline but comes as an unexpected development, much gunfire, Steven's usual muttered monotone, and some martial arts action.
The fairly chaotic screenplay manages to hold together despite its spit-for-glue quality. FLIGHT OF FURY gives us nothing new at all in the action genre, but if you are a fan of this type of film FLIGHT OF FURY is worth the effort of crackin' a cold one and mowing down on a couple of microwaved hot dogs on a slow Sunday. (A hint: use the extra spicy mustard.)"
Much better than expected!

"I have NO idea why there are negative reviews of this show.
As an avid Seagal fan, who has seen ALL his movies, & owns several of them; I have been disappointed in the past by some of his releases.
Foreigner being one of them.
Flight of Fury is an excellent show! I thought the fight scenes were ok, not as good as we have seen before...but good.
I will be buying this one! SEE THIS MOVIE!"
Not as bad as most say here

"Give the man a break! Yes, "Attack Force" was horrible but this one is worth to be watched."
