When I saw that Steven Seagal and Steve Austin were starring together in “Maximum Conviction”, I could request this faster to review. I don’t care what people say but I think that Seagal can still kick some major ass. Austin is also such a bad-ass. The duo is also also behind-the-scenes producing on the film. Steve Austin is executive producing, while Steve Seagal is producing. You can tell that they are behind this film 100% and it is not just some cheesy action/thriller. If you are a fan of kick-ass action films, this is a no-brainer. Sit back, relax and get ready to have the Steve’s kick some ass!
Official Premise: When former black ops operative Tom Steele (Steven Seagal) and his partner Manning (Steve Austin) are assigned to decommission an old prison, they must oversee the arrival of two mysterious female prisoners. Before long, an elite force of mercenaries assault the prison in search of the new arrivals. As the true identities of the women are revealed, Steele realizes he’s caught in the middle of something far bigger than he had imagined. Fists will fly and bones will shatter as the situation escalates with every passing minute.
Anchor Bay is delivering “Maximum Conviction” as a DVD + Blu-ray combo pack. The Blu-ray looks sharp, especially with the action in the film. The Dolby TrueHD 5.1 track also sounds great on the Blu-ray. The special features are quite decent for this action/thriller. There is an audio commentary with Executive Producer/Director Keoni Waxman and Co-Executive Producer Binh Dang. There is a short but effective behind the scenes featurette. “Icons: Working with Legendary Action Stars” is a feature on these two get action stars Seagal and Austin working together. Lastly there is an interview with Steve Austin and Bren Foster.
