Half Past Dead is a thrilling action movie released in 2002, starring Morris Chestnut, Steven Seagal, and Matt Battaglia. The plot revolves around the famous Alcatraz prison and a group of criminals that want to break out a death row inmate. After an undercover FBI agent, Sasha Petrosevitch (played by Steven Seagal), is shot and killed by a group of criminals, he is taken to a nearby hospital to be resuscitated. Soon after, he is taken to Alcatraz prison, where he will find himself in a dangerous situation.

Once in the prison, he is placed in a cell next to a death row inmate who somehow knows Petrosevitch's true identity. He tells him that he has important information that could help the FBI, but he won't reveal it unless his daughter is present. However, the inmate is scheduled to be executed later that day, so there's not much time.

It turns out that the group of criminals that ambushed Petrosevitch is led by a man named Donny Johnson (played by Morris Chestnut), who also happens to be the younger brother of the death row inmate next to Petrosevitch. Johnson wants to break his brother out of prison and escape with the $200 million worth of gold that's hidden somewhere in the prison.

Johnson and his team have already infiltrated the prison and are posing as guards, but their motives are soon revealed when the death row inmate is rescued by Johnson's team. They also take hostages, including the prison warden and his assistant.

Petrosevitch teams up with other inmates, (including the muscular Matt Battaglia) to stop Johnson and his team from escaping with the gold and to save the hostages. There are numerous action-packed fight scenes, gun battles, and explosions as the two groups fight for control of the prison.

Along the way, the truth about Petrosevitch's past is revealed, including his failed marriage and the death of his young son. He also uncovers the truth about Johnson's motives for the prison break.

The climax of the movie takes place on the rooftop of the prison, where Johnson and Petrosevitch engage in a final, intense showdown. Will Johnson and his team escape with the gold and the death row inmate, or will they be brought to justice? The movie keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very end.

In conclusion, Half Past Dead is a thrilling action movie full of intense fight scenes, gun battles, and explosive action. Steven Seagal and Morris Chestnut deliver star performances, and the rest of the cast supports them well. The story is engaging, and the pacing is just right, leaving the audience satisfied by the end. Overall, Half Past Dead is a must-watch for action movie fans.
