Leaving “Exit Wounds” I was happy of one thing – Steven Seagal was back to playing Steven Seagal, kicking ass and taking names. That’s all I wanted to see.

The story, well, do you really care about the story? Alright, I’ll give you the brief run-down. Seagal plays Orin Boyd. He’s a cop with a temper problem and gets relocated to the worse side of town. Along with his reassignment, well, Orin is made to go to anger-management courses where he runs into talk show host Henry (played hysterically by Tom Arnold). As the story goes Orin is doing some investigating and comes across Latrell (DMX). Orin thinks Latrell is bad news and is hell-bent on finding the real story. Kicking ass here, investigating there, and Latrell being a pretty good bad-ass, well, that’s about all you need to know because the story is kinda silly when you think about it.

So I will keep this review short because who really needs to analyze a Steven Seagal movie. “Exit Wounds” gives you what you want, even some really cool gadgetry, and the laughs provided by Tom Arnold and Latrell’s sidekick, T.K., played by Anthony Anderson are more than enough to get you to see a matinee or at least wait till the video hits the store.

As a great movie, “Exit Wounds” probably only warrants one star, but as a Steven Seagal film, it’s
3 ½ stars out of 5.

That’s it for this one! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
