ON DEADLY GROUND (1994) Steven Seagal stars as a concerned musclehead
with a heart of gold who fights an evil oil corporation on behalf of a
community of northern natives. This oil company is led by none other
than Michael Caine, in one of his less prestigious roles. We’ve also got
John C. McGinley as an oil company henchman, adding to his endless
resume. Several other familiar faces from the stable of 90s character
actors show up as well, including an early appearance from Billy Bob
Thornton, complete with some of the stranger lines in the film. This
movie features a bizarrely sincere environmental message that is
delivered without any particular sense of subtlety. The evil oil
corporation is bad and mean to the natives, and it’s gonna take some
serious kickboxing and several explosions to make things right. Seagal’s
allegiance with the natives is pretty emphasized, too. He even goes on a
spirit journey. And all the tassels on his beaded leather jackets make
it pretty clear as well.
