- 1 hr 30 min
Out for a Kill is a 2003 action movie starring Steven Seagal. Seagal plays Professor Robert Burns as he tries to stop several Chinese drug "kingpins" from using him to smuggle their product. The film also stars Corey Johnson as Ed Grey, Michelle Goh as Tommie Ling, and Tom Wu as Li Bo. As expected of Steven Seagal films, this one features many action scenes consisting of gunfights and martial arts. In the beginning of the story Burns is framed for murder and smuggling drugs at the Chinese border. He is then thrown into a Chinese prison and released by the DEA. Burns vows for vengeance, and the rest of the film is spent with him getting it. The movie went straight to video. Critics did not view it very favorably. They commented mostly on Seagal's use of a stunt double and unexciting fight scenes. Production costs for the film were $14 million.
