Flawed but Still Entertaining
16 June 2021
When the FBI agent Jack Taggert (Steven Seagal) learns that his best friend Frank Elkins (John Diehl) was murdered while investigating the dumping of toxic waste in the Appalachia mountains, he decides to assume the case undercover to proceed the investigation. His point of contact is the local Rev. Goodall (Levon Helm) and soon he befriends the outcast Sarah Kellogg (Marg Helgenberger) and Cotton (Harry Dean Stanton) posing of Mr. Fixit working for the church. Jack Taggert finds that the locals have a secret about a huge corporation that is dumping toxic waste hidden in old mines and he decides to confront the king pin of the operation.

"Fire Down Below" is a flawed but still entertaining film with Steven Seagal in the lead role. The plot has many shallow scenes, but Warner Bros. Edited many sequences and maybe this procedure lost various explanations. Anyway, it is worthwhile watching this action movie. The soundtrack is top-notch. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Ameaça Subterrânea" ("Underground Menace")
