Top 5 Steven Seagal Movies
5 you may ask, why this is just a Top 5 list of Steven Seagal movies, why not a Top 10 Steven Seagal movie list? Truth is whilst Steven Seagal has made over 50 movies I am hard pushed to find 5 stand out movies from that bunch let alone the standard 10. But for fans of the 7th-dan black belt in Aikido will know full well that whilst Steven Seagal's career started with some decent action movies as the 90s progressed the quality of those movies dropped off in all areas from storylines to the acting and especially the editing which often hacked action scenes to bits to try and masquerade various issues.
As such here is The Movie Scene's Top 5 Steven Seagal Movies, well 5 which are entertaining anyway.
