Flight Of Fury (2006)

hard to believe, but Steven Seagal is still making action films, even if they
are going straight to DVD. What is even
more amazing is that he has put on an amazing amount of weight and he can
somehow still move fast enough for martial arts. It will give you new respect of Obi Wan’s
final moments in Star Wars. Flight
Of Fury (2006) is a lame tale about retrieving a stolen stealth bomber, but
as you watch, you wonder why the auto self-destruct was not set on the plane
and this script.
co-wrote the silly script which opens with some goofiness about mind erasing,
something he and co-writer Joe Halpin expect the audience to experience when
they pour fourth with more clichés than a Bon Jovi hit. This is worse than other recent Seagal DVD
releases, which says something about how bad it is. He should have cut and run instead.
anamorphically enhanced 1.85 X 1 image looks like it was shot in digital
instead of film, with weak color and detail, even more so than usual. Darker scenes have especially problematic
Video Black and editing is not good. The
Dolby Digital 5.1 mix is nothing special, somewhat front heavy and has at least
ambience happening when there is nothing else.
Only several trailers amount to a secondary extra.
