HALF PAST DEAD (2003)

MPAA Rating: PG-13
EW's GRADE
C

Details Release Date: Mar 04, 2003; Movie Rated: PG-13; Genre: Action/Adventure; With: Steven Seagal; Distributor: Screen Gems Inc.

As is usually the case, Seagal's latest nondescript butt-kicker is amusing enough to merit the ''not nearly as bad as you'd expect'' rave. With the help of goofily charismatic rapper Ja Rule, the aging aikido sensei thwarts cuddly Morris Chestnut's convoluted scheme to break into Alcatraz (retrofitted to again hold America's most dangerous prisoners, but looking more like an uninspired movie set) and find some hidden treasure. Call it ''Under Siege on the Rock.''
