Into the Sun
In Into the Sun, Seagal is a U.S. agent who investigates the assassination of a governor and Tokyo and soon uncovers the fact that the assassination was all a ploy to distract from the heroin smuggling operation of the Yakuza. Steven Seagal IS Travis Hunter, an American operative tasked with investigating the public assassination of a governor in Tokyo. Into the Sun is pure ludicrous. Its Japanese gangsters are increidbly trigger-happy, shooting anyone who gets in their way, and Seagal gets to do some crazy stuff in the last half an hour of the film, throwing a guy through an eight floor window and going after the main villains with a samurai sword. Yes, that’s right – Steven Seagal Hulking out with a samurai sword, and it’s even better than it sounds.
