Movies I Don't Need To See To Know They're Bad: The Asian Connection (AKA Another Steven Seagal Crapfest)

Wednesday, September 14, 2016

Perusing Redbox I stumbled upon the DVD cover and couldn't resist finding out a little more - and with an "endorsement" like this (among other things) the film speaks for itself:

If you're reading this review of the Steven Seagal vehicle "The Asian Connection," it is probably too late to dissuade you from seeing almost any other movie. I get it: you want to see a movie with a vaguely racist-sounding title starring the has-been star of cheesy action films like "Hard to Kill," "Marked for Death," and "Above the Law." These films are bad, but in an endearingly disastrous way. The same is basically true of "The Asian Connection," a lousy bank heist flick and one of Seagal's most engagingly tacky recent efforts. I want to defend this movie, but it's so bad that I must warn you: if you watch this film knowing that it is Steven-Seagal-wearing-a-du-rag-and-glowering-impassively-at-attractive-young-women bad, you will get what you pay for. That's both an endorsement and a warning.
Err...bloated, old, racist, pervy Seagal for 100 please?
