After an illustrious special ops career ends in disaster, Alexander (Seagal) goes off the grid and attempts to lead a quiet life as a handyman at an apartment complex. But when one of his tenants and her family fall under the thumb of a Russian gangster, Alexander is dragged into an all-out war between rival Chinese and Russian gangs; forcing him to not only defend the family, but bringing him face to face with an old foe, and giving him one more chance to reconcile his past.


“A Good Man” plays out like if Steven Seagal was a Mr. Miyagi type who was a second away from making a Cannon Films movie come to life. The supporting cast is pretty serviceable, but this is Seagal’s chance to shine. That being said, I don’t know how many times Seagal has done this before. Everything feels familiar and Seagal shows no trouble getting around the material. It’s just that I feel like I’ve already seen this movie.

Steven Seagal and his body of work often leads to feelings of Deja Vu. I like it when he’s breaking arms, but everything after “Exit Wounds” just blurs into one giant movie for me. Did you see that Seagal was going to do a show in Crimea? Seems like a questionable move given what’s going on, but people used to play Sun City too. I’d like to see Seagal come back to America and do bigger movies here with him as the lead. While I liked Seagal in “Machete”, he deserves to be a hero much like he is in “A Good Man”.

The DVD comes with a Digital HD copy, featurette and a trailer gallery as the special features. The A/V Quality works for this kind of movie. The standard definition transfer is strong enough. The Dolby 5.1 track pops in for gunfire and other effects. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase to Seagal fans.
