Driven To Kill (2008/Fox Blu-ray)


Picture: B-     Sound: B-     Extras: D     Film: D



Steven Seagal continues to make his quasi-indie action B-features and in some ways, Driven To Kill (2008) is one of the worst yet.  With a bad accent, he is a former enforcer in the Russian Mob in New York and returns to The Big Apple after years of becoming (try not to laugh) a writer.  Of course, the pen will not turn out to be mightier than any sword or his fist when he goes into action, no matter how much weight he has put on.


From the first shot, the 90 minutes just goes on and on and on, dumber and more unbelievable than when it beings and is really flat out terrible.  Jeff E. King cannot direct, Mark James can barely write, Seagal and company can barely act and the fights are as unimpressive as the rest of the would-be action.  This was a big mistake to make and should be totally avoided.


The 1080p 1.85 X 1 digital AVC @ 23 MBPS High Definition image was shot in a High Definition video format that is noisy, weak and Blu-ray shows the non-stop flaws in with ease.  The DTS-HD Master Audio (MA) lossless 5.1 also shows the budget limits, with a poor soundfield and bad recording and mixing overall.  There are no extras.
