Driven to Kill is a 2009 American hard boiled exploitation action crime film starring Steven Seagal and Robert Wisden. The film was written by Mark James and directed by Jeff F. King. The plot of the film revolves around ex-Russian mafioso Ruslan Druchev, played by Steven Seagal, who is now working as a writer of hard boiled crime fiction. He goes to see his daughter who is getting married and while visiting his ex-wife and daughter are attacked. His wife dies and his daughter is severely wounded; thus, together with the help of his daughter's fiance, a dubious man with past and family ties to the Russian mafia, Druchev goes out seeking revenge against the men who hurt his family.
The film was released as a direct to DVD and Blu Ray and garnered overwhelming negative reviews. Most critics cited the film's action star, Seagal, as being too old for the actual stunt work and fight choreography.
