Having taken on more villains in his legendary career than Stallone, Statham and Schwarzenegger combined, martial arts master Seagal is back for his most action-packed mission yet that boasts maximum hand-to-hand combat, maximum body count and maximum on-screen bad-ass!
Stars Steven Seagal (Under Siege; Hard To Kill; Machete), Steve Austin (The Expendables; WWF; The Longest Yard), Michael Paré (The Virgin Suicides; The Lincoln Lawyer; Gone) and Zak Santiago (Shooter; Smallville; Stargate SG-1).
As one final mission before their retirement, former Black Ops soldier Cross (Steven Seagal) and his partner Manning (Steve Austin) are assigned the task of decommissioning an old military prison and safely transport all the detainees to a different site. Before doing so, they must firstly oversee the mysterious arrival of two high-security female prisoners that pose a potential risk to the safe-running of the operation.
Before long an elite force of mercenaries’ descend into the prison in search of the new arrivals and Cross suddenly finds himself thrown into a frenzied fight for survival. A man of strong values who adheres to the completion of all missions he is assigned, Cross assembles a hard-knock team of experts to take down the mercenaries before they get to the female arrivals.
Plagued with the additional threat of the extremely dangerous prisoners that roam the corridors, Cross must utilise the skills he gained during the Special Forces and take down the guerrilla soldiers before it costs him his life. As the true identities of the women are revealed though, Cross realizes he's caught in the middle of something far bigger than he had imagined.
We like it because:
Maximum Conviction proves that Steven Seagal is still a serious contender for the crown of the King of Action. He still brings the kind of unadulterated, high-octane thrills and spills to the screen that make your grin like a giddy girl! A real-life Aikido genius, Seagal is a true American action hero and it's our maximum conviction that no one delivers a moody chopdown better than ‘The Great One’!
