In Northern Norway during the 1860s, a little girl named Dina accidentally causes her mother's death. Overcome with grief, her father refuses to raise her, leaving her in the care of the household servants. Dina grows up wild and unmanageable, with her only friend being the stable boy, Tomas. She summons her mother's ghost and develops a strange fascination with death as well as a passion for living. Family friend Jacob encourages Dina's father to hire Lorch, a tutor who introduces her to the cello. When Dina is old enough, she marries Jacob and moves to Reinsnes, a port he runs with his mother, Karen, and his stepsons Niels and Anders . Niels doesn't like Dina's wild ways, or the fact that she has taken over accounting duties at Reinsnes. Dina's eccentric tendencies become even stronger, eventually leading Jacob into an accident of his own and bringing Tomas back into her life.

For me, however, this film proves that Schwarzenegger is better at action films. Not that this is a bad movie. In fact, it's a film that actually shows a lot of potential as a comedy film. The story is a decent change of pace, but at the very first part, it seems not to make sense, not until we transition to the suburban setting. The main premise is rather silly and hard to believe, but the writing is solid, and the film builds up to a somewhat well-executed conclusion. The characters are alright, and their played quite well, although this is one of those films where Arnie steals pretty much all the limelight, which is rightfully so because he outperforms everyone else. Overall, this film was competent at both action and comedy, with a healthy dose of action, plenty of balanced humour (meaning that it isn't just a machine gun comedy film). It's not a bad film, but it's not as good as it could have been, but that doesn't make it irredeemable. In fact, if you've got nothing else, you could at least watch this, and it wouldn't be so bad.
Harry W (jp) wrote: One of Steven Seagal's earliest action vehicles, Marked for Death was worth checking out for me as a fan of Steven Segal.There isn't much to say about a film like Marked for Death aside from the fact that it is essentially a standard Steven Seagal fare.The premise in Marked for Death is a pretty cheap one. It's the basic story about a DEA agent becoming a one man army in a war against Jamaican gangs and their influence on the drug trade. It makes this completely obvious by having the most stereotypical Jamaican characters as the antagonists, especially some obsessed with some form of voodoo. So the story is generic and the film just uses Jamaicans in place of the usual Asians as the drug trade antagonists, although they are strangely psychotic characters with strange cultural traditions as the main source of their antagonising nature. The enemies in Marked for Deathdo not feel like they are that threatening as bad guys because they are essentially some form of religious cult with a connection to a drug trade, and so the writing in the film fills a little more ridiculous than in other Steven Seagal films. The premise makes sense but the characters do not and nor do their motives, and that combined with a generic direction for its protagonist end up ensuring that Marked for Death is really a limited film which delivers some entertaining action film but does not fully capitalise on the potential of Steven Seagal's abilities. It may be one of his better films in contrast to his very low quality films, but it still is rather formulaic and unsurprising. But then again, I'm sure that most people would go into seeing the film with that precise expectation.What you need to look at Marked for Death for is simply its action qualities, and honestly the most die hard fans of Steven Seagal or nuts action junkies will get a thrill out of seeing him kick so many bad guys around and engage in shootouts and car chases. The only problem is that the film does not have a sense that there is a lot of energy in it. It feels slow moving and rather melodramatic which means that it cannot be tense or energetic like a good action film really needs to be, and although it has its moments thanks to some entertaining action scenes, all in all it is dragged down by the thinly sketched melodrama occurring between the scenes and the lack of creativity or originality in the plot which just makes the mood of everything feel more dull than it already is. Everything in Marked for Death feels slow and it isn't explosive or thrilling, and even at a running time of a mere 93 minutes the pace and length of the film feel a lot slower and longer than the project actually is. I guess the problem is that the film is way too busy taking itself seriously to actually have any fun, and so the viewers are not likely to feel the same about it all in the end. There is a fanbase out there for Marked for Death, but I can only say that there was a certain level of entertainment value I felt from the film and it was not consistent or sufficient enough to stand up and prove that the film was good overall because it just wasn't.The important thing about Marked for Death is how much ass Steven Seagal kicks in it. While the character he plays is nothing more than a generic action hero and he acts it out as such, Marked for Death serves as an opportunity for him to show off his diverse abilities as an action hero. He manages to pull the triggers on his guns with powerful energy and use whatever weapons come his way like a pro. But most importantly, Marked for Death allows him to implement in his natural skill for martial arts. He shows off his skills for Aikido in Marked for Death which are some of his most defining elements, and he ensures that the nature of his action scenes are mostly entertaining enough to please fans. He puts up a great fight by throwing all kinds of techniques around and kicking the ass of every Jamaican he comes into contact with, and so his skills as a martial artist do a lot for him in Marked for Death. If Marked for Death was more focused on that than it was on shoddy plotting and cheap writing then the film could have been a lot better, but it is Steven Seagal who really pulls it out in the end and puts up enough of a fight for the film to at least have some sense of entertainment value to it. His acting may not be at an all time high and his general mood seems rather dull as well, but considering that the film is an action vehicle for him and essentially nothing else, he attributes the necessary aspects to the film.Keith David makes a decent supporting presence as he supplies the stereotypical tough African American archetype to the story. He makes a team with Steven Seagal as the two of them progress into the strange underworld of Jamaican drug trade, and although he is only given a handful of screen time, he manages to do his job well enough within the matter of a limited time and makes himself a good presence as well as a decent team with Steven Segal when the action rolls around. He does his part. So Marked for Death is a pretty routine Steven Seagal effort. It is better than his truly bad films and it has some entertaining action as well as Steven Seagal showing off his versatile range of fighting abilities, but it is all shrouded in cheap writing, a weak premise and a story that goes by slowly and free of tension which renders the experience more dull than it is fun.

Corvette Summer is a Teen Angst Popcorn Flick that features some nice cars, Luke Skywalker, and a future Designing Woman. Mark Hamill does his best "golly gee whiz" farm boy impression throughout the film but slowly evolves in the third act. Annie Potts plays a hooker with a heart of gold and garnered a Golden Globe nomination for her zany yet sensitive portrayal of misguided Vanessa. The plot in a nutshell is; Hamill's Kenny restores a Corvette for his advanced High School shop class only to have it stolen the first night he takes it out cruising. Corvette Summer turns into a road movie as Kenny follows the leads and ends up in Las Vegas hunting down his car meeting a bunch of mixed nuts along the way. The finale is a sweet battle between an early 1970's 2nd gen Trans-Am (customized) and Kenny's custom Corvette Stingray (which boasts right-hand drive) in the Nevada desert. If you like car movies, 1970's teen movies, Luke Skywalker, or hookers with hearts of gold then pop this into your player. And no, it does not have a John Williams score . . .
