Exit Wounds (2001)

Routine action thriller which sees heavy duty Steven Seagal playing a reckless inner city street cop teaming up with rapper DMX. They lay down some whoop-ass on a bunch of crooked police dealing heroin through a T-shirt factory. Cinematographer Bartkowiak sticks to his principles and creates another Romeo Must Die-style extended music video with similarly brash editing and slow-motion. Seagal looks a bit out of step, and out of shape for that matter. The movie comes alive during the fist fights, including a wire-enhanced sword fight between Seagal and Michael Jai White which looks so out of context it’s actually quite laughable. The extended banter between Anderson and Arnold during the credits is the film’s funniest moment.
