Steven Seagal makes me want to throw up. His acting is disgusting and every time he says "I'm a Buddhist monk and I hate violence." You know he's going to beat every single person up and then go home beat his girlfriend or wife up. Then of course there's the sneaky way he got his dans and that's the end of it.
I can agree with basically all of this. but again, not a fan of Li. Dacascos I've seen in so few films, but is a real life legend, his dad was a major player in the growth of Kajukenbo, the very art I study. Seagal is a punk, and fat. Van Damme is excellent, but he let his movies be too cheesy and the fighting sequences too.... goofy. And Norris isn't a martial artist. He's the ultimate end of human evolution.
