Movie Review by Jarrod
September 5th, 2007

'Fire Down Below' is another tedious and preachy environmentalist rant from Seagal, who thankfully chose to sit out as director, though I doubt it would not have mattered overly much. He plays Jack Taggart, who works for the EPA, and comes to rural Kentucky to investigate illegal toxic dumping carried out by the rich and greedy Orin Hanner (Kris Kristofferson), who has his son and a band of cronies rule the town in his stead.

Taggart poses as a simple handyman, doing odd jobs for the locals, as he investigates. He falls for the lonely and lovely Sarah (Marg Helgenberger), who is essentially a pariah, since everyone thinks she killed her father. Harry Dean Stanton offers solid support as a slow-witted man Taggart befriends, Levon Helm is a pastor, and Stephen Lang is Sarah's brother, Earl, who constantly tries to control and intimidate her. The action picks up later on, but is not worth waiting on. Seagal is at his monotonous best, even taking up a guitar and playing with country star Marty Stuart. Kristofferson makes for a bland villain, but seems to be enjoying himself nonetheless.
