We gave it a B-

Whoever coordinated Steven Seagal’s ”new look” should have paid more attention to his hairline: That wedge is starting to resemble brown velour that’s been put through the washing machine. Seagal shows his age in Exit Wounds, but he also exhibits the surly charisma that made him a sort-of star. This blithely brutal cops-and-drugs thriller is an efficient hot-wire entertainment. As a drug kingpin who is not what he seems, the rapper DMX understates his lines with an authority as cruelly elegant as his cheekbones.
