Plot

The movie tells the story of a tough urban detective who is banished to the worst precinct for acting with excessive violence. There, he finds signs of a huge drug ring, and the only person who can help him uncover it is a suspected drug dealer outside the department. The drug dealer turns out to be a billionaire whose goal is to free his brother from a Federal Correctional Facility. DMX and Seagal join forces to take on a drug operation. The movie is an action movie, however plot holes and poor acting inadvertently turn many sequences into farcical comedy, including DMX's character's role as a computer genius.


Commercial

Exit Wounds was considered a surprise hit movie as it grossed over $50 million in America and at the same time was hailed as Seagal's big "comeback". Nevertheless many long time fans of Seagal protested the use of special effects, lack of focus on their idol and the "fakeness" of the stunts (that used wires).
