Fire Down Below
When an EPA representative is discovered dead in a small Midwestern town, government agent Jack Taggart (Steven Seagal) goes undercover to check things out. He finds that local coal mogul Orin Hanner Sr. (Kris Kristofferson) is cutting financial corners by disposing of hazardous waste wherever he pleases and that local kids are falling ill because of this recklessness. Taggart then works to stop the shady activity and save the town, but Hanner and his thugs soon grow suspicious of him.
- " …a mostly watchable thriller that's elevated considerably by Seagal's engaging and surprisingly charismatic turn… " – David Nusair
- " A real pleasant surprise with a less brash, more likable Seagal. Manages to show a genuine affection for the kind of rural folks elitist Hollywood usually ridicules. " – Chuck O'Leary
- " There are movies that you know can't be any good, so they'd better be great. Fire Down Below … achieves that grand level of absurdity. " – Mick LaSalle
