A quick programming note: Today is “Oh my gosh I can’t believe these guys are still kicking ass” Exclusive Clip Day. Moments ago I shared with you an exclusive first look at Dolph Lundgren in his upcoming actioner Direct Contact, and now I’m back again with some Steven Seagal action in the high-powered mafia revenge flick Driven to Kill.
As you will see in the clip below, Seagal plays a highly respected former-enforcer for the New York Russian mob who is gearing up to take on a deadly criminal syndicate. The film promises plenty of violence, but what this clip delivers is something different — I would urge you to try and assess which is more awesomely bad: Seagal’s fake tan or his fake Russian accent?
Driven to Kill hits DVD and Blu-ray on May 19, 2009. Check out the exclusive clip below followed by the film’s official synopsis.
Official Synopsis: Get ready for bullets, blood, and bodies hitting the ground, because international action superstar Steven Seagal is back… with a vengeance!
Enter the lethal world of Driven To Kill – a take-no-prisoners crime saga that pits Seagal against a deadly criminal syndicate! Seagal stars as Ruslan Drachev, a highly-respected former enforcer in the New York-based Russian Mob, who long ago abandoned the gangland lifestyle to pursue a more peaceful career as a crime novelist. But his world is turned upside down when he learns that his daughter is engaged to marry a Russian gangster who also happens to be Ruslan’s cold-hearted nemesis from the bad old days. When a shocking act of brutality forces Ruslan to return to the sinister underbelly of his past, he must mete out his own merciless, murderous brand of justice, until no enemy is left standing!
