I have decided to take their original five and add five from my own expertise and observation:
1. You can't kill him (As far as I know he only died on screen once in Executive Decision where he had a minor role)
2. He never reloads ... ever
3. Innocent people will get hurt
4. A baby may get hurt during the film!
5. He never makes love until the credits roll!
OK my five are:
6. He has to have a secret ex military / intelligence / martial arts background
7. He has to partner up with either a hot chick or a street talkin black dude
8. Not only can't you kill him, you cannot hurt him either (can you remember any injury?)
9. There has to be an implausible anti globalisation / environmental message in the film
10. At some point the bad guys have to discover his secret background and look a little stunned typically with the master bad dude saying 'Goddamn it you fools he is the best of the best, I know we send ten guys up there to get him... they will be dead already...'

McCourt is a Texas ranger used to all sorts of trouble but even he is surprised when an African witch doctor turns up in Holten (pop 2,500) and tells him that the world is doomed unless he saes it - It turns out McCourt is the last in a line of global protectors and only he can save the entire world from plague.
McCourt must complete a number of unusual tests before he can succeed:
1. Calm a live Tiger until it eats chicken from his palm
2. Swim to the Titanic and retrieve a mystical gemstone
3. Win a kung fu competition blindfolded
Thankfully, McCourt is not alone - McCourts sidekicks, Penny Heart (Martine McCutcheon) and MastaBlast (Ian Wright) are along for the ride.
Quotes from the film
Penny Heart: 'Goddamn it McCourt you can't tame a tiger with that Kung Fu eye to eye nonsense, I care too much to see you hurt'
McCourt: 'Yeah but someones gotta save humanity.... but hey Ill be thinkin of you, you look good in that Bikini'
Mastablast 'Mo fo to the max big bro its whack mack to think you swimmin down to that wreck bro'
McCourt: 'Yo yo big man but my mind over matter approach makes the impossible possible'
Washington Post 'Simply astounding.. fresh, innovative and moving. This could do a Slumdog!'
Peterhead Chronicle 'If a dead person was offered two hours more life to watch this, I am sure they would regret it'
London Evening Standard 'I can safely say this is the only film that made me want to burn my face off and repetitively stab my testes with a biro'

When gas exploration multi-national CORRUPX decides to explore the area for minerals, Striker and the locals start a petition.
CORRUPX are not the kind of company to delay for due process however and after having cash offers for land turned down by the environmentally concious inuits, they commence a campaign of harrasment that ultimately leads to murder.
Soon they send an army of renegades led by Frixel, played by Neutrino from So Solid Crew to take out Striker and his harmless villagers. Frixel is an ex loan shark who enjoys killing people for small change.
What they all do not know is that Striker is not just some local logger. After his parents were killed for defaulting on a $400 side by side, he fled and spent his formative years with a reclusive sect of kung fu inuits, deep inside Artic Caves. His prowess soon had the master name him 'Grizzly: Kaui Ininuui Tuiiinth' or 'Grizzly: Shepherd of determination and leader who shall save us from evil spirit'.
Now it seems that the loan sharks have sought out to ruin Strikers life once again but this time his fear is defrosted.....
In a film that bares some resemblance to 'On Deadly Ground', you will laugh and cry and nod your head as the expected stereotypical inuit hot totty turns up, implausibly scantily clad in -20 degree temparatures.

John Telliman, a rich lawyer who rides bikes on the weekends, falls into some trouble with a gang of outlaw bikers and gets a case in his possession that will only bring him misery. So...what's in the case, and why do they want it.
In the updated version, Seagal opens the case in the final scene to reveal the holy grail. Incredible stuff...
Looking at the original I genuinely think Seagal would add quality to this film!

The project, which is under the working title of 'Titans of Justice' will be directed by Steven Seagal himself, who will also conduct an ochestral sequence ina dramatic opening scene which has swallowed much of the $275,000 budget.
Loosely based on Watership Down, Seagal plays Rabbit McPunch a theme park security guard who has a colourful and mysterious past having spent time with monks in mysterious snowy mountain surroundings. The theme park is under threat from two local rival youth gangs led by Biscuit (Connery) and Shotgun (Van Damme).
Rabbit must essentially save the park from the warring gangs who are intend on wreaking havoc around the candy floss stall.
To complicate the plot further, former page three model Joss Huntley plays Treacle, the daughter of the theme park owner and she is interested in all three men.
Will Seagal win the day?
In an interview on the red carpet for the Carte D'or Ice Cream in Film awards, he said
'My fans want realism and thats what this project is about. Yes the final scenes are essentially Kung Fu on a rollercoaster and I don't want to give the game away but it shows off my superb martial arts balance and poise, even if it was CGI. Of course I cannot say who comes out on top but if I told you I get the line 'This is the last loop the loop you boys get....' then it points you the right way. Like I say my fans want realism in my films and they would not accept a beating from a Scottish pensioner or a guy whose initials are VD, it just wouldn't happen ..... pass me a pie'

Colonel Jack McTwist - He could star in Stick or McTwist a film where some nuclear warheads have been stolen by a renegade team of ex Ukranian special services punks (similar to Under Siege) - The thing is the Ukranian main bad dude (who has had a run in with Seagals Character before, possibly over a women, who may also turn up) likes to gamble and is offering the US authorities the warheads back if they hand him McTwist....
It sounds straight to DVD..
It sounds like it needs a caption such as: They had the world at their feet should they stick or McTwist (god thats awful)
HEAVER: 'Christ McSurefire you'll never make that shot its 450 yards with 30 click gusts and a target bobbing and weaving through a childs playground'
MCSUREFIRE: 'You focus on the paperwork, Heaver, leave the dirty stuff to me...'
HEAVER: 'You do not have clearance to take the shot, repeat, you do not..'
MCSUREFIRE: '(Shoots) Tell it to the president (arab man drops in distance)
HEAVER: 'Damn you McSurefire you are an alcholic renegade but you're good, damn good, you blend in to these Middle East countries like a local, christ in a crowd you just seemlessly mingle in. Let's get the hell out of here before Muqtada's men arrive'

Lt Colonel Buck McCross

Steven Seagal directs and stars as Hawk ‘Chips’ Strikedown in this romantic action comedy due for release in the fall of 09.
Strikedown is a cop on the verge of retirement whose life has fallen apart. His wife was killed in a tragic tram accident and for the last two years Hawk has spent time at the bottom of the bottle.
Hawks new boss Dino Fluerie, played by Jay Leno, is piling on the pressure because of Strikedowns unconventional no nonsense approach, even though he gets results.
Seeing an opportunity, his ex partner from ‘Nam Phillip McBlack, played by Michael Barrymore in his Hollywood debut, kidnaps Strikedowns daughter, Honey. McBlack is demanding Strikedown steal the LAPDs 2.3 tonne pile of cocaine implausibly kept in a top security hold at LAX.
McBlacks problem is that Hawk is the best of the best of the best of the best of the very damn best. When Special Forces have a super secret covert mission, Hawk is the only man they trust to frown severely enough. Hawk calls on his old special forces buddies .. expert disguise and misinformation agent Buxom Green, played by Carmen Electra and fast street talkin, jivin’, XXC Blast, played by Khanye West.
Will Hawk save Honey and put McBlack down. Who is the mysterious ‘man in white’ behind it all who smokes the same brand of cigar as Fluerie, Hawks boss? Plus, how did the punks know when Hawk was on duty, how did they get his shift patterns?
Get the answers, if you need them, to these questions and laugh, cry and probably do a little wee during this high octane rollercoaster of a film this Autumn.
