    Marked For Death (1990)

    Synopsis: Chicago DEA agent John Hatcher has just returned from Colombia, where his partner was killed in the line of duty by a drug dealer who has since been taken down. As a result of his partner's death, John has decided to retire, but his retirement may not be permanent. On the next day, after reuniting with his sister Melissa and Melissa's daughter Tracy, John gets into a shootout against a Jamaican drug kingpin known as Screwface, taking down some of Screwface's men. John brings himself out of retirement when Screwface retaliates by attempting to kill Melissa and Tracy. After the shooting, John is reunited with two old friends - a local high school football coach named Max, and a Jamaican Chicago cop named Charles. John and Max set out to hunt Screwface down, only to discover that Screwface has gone back to Jamaica. John and Max take Charles with them to Jamaica for an all out war against Screwface and his drug empire.



    Red Heat (1988)

    Synopsis: Arnold Schwarzenegger plays a Russian policeman sent after a Georgian drug dealer who has escaped to the United States and is awaiting extradition in Chicago. Jim Belushi plays his temporary partner on the Chicago police. When the drug dealer escapes, the two police must overcome their differences in order to recapture him.

    Marked for Death is actually better than a lot of Arnold's films, especially a lower-tier effort like Red Heat.

    Fair warning.

    I'm just speaking the truth. Arnold rules, but I don't think anybody is crazy enough to believe that Red Heat is one of his strongest efforts; Marked for Death, meanwhile, is Seagal's best work behind Above the Law and, IMO, worthy of placement alongside the very best of the genre.

    Red Heat is one of the few Arnold movies I haven't seen so I abstained.

    I love Marked for Death and Seagal in general.

    Dammint! I accidentally voted for the wrong movie in the poll. If Red heat wins by one vote, I'll never forgive myself.

    I'm not super surprised how many people haven't seen Red Heat. I actually hadn't seen it until about 3 years ago.

    After watching it I was pretty pissed off at myself for not having seen it sooner, as I am a huge Arnold fan and pride myself in being Arnold's best friend. I stopped talking to myself for about a week or so.

    Anyways, it's great Arnold action, and easily his most underrated movie IMO.

    People need to stop pretending they don't like Seagal.

    Red Heat is fun, but Marked for Death is a classic.
