Belly of the Beast (2003, CDN/HGK/GBR) C-91m. * D: Ching Siu-Tung. Starring Steven Seagal, Byron Mann, Monica Lo, Tom Wu. Almost completely worthless actioner with Seagal an ex-CIA agent going to Thailand to recover kidnapped daughter. Buddhist clichés abound, a fat, old "hero" and a plot that is a throw-back to 80s video store bombs. Photography and direction (by genre-great Ching) is actually quite good, but it can't save this turkey.
