Re: Steven Seagal seems like a jerk teacher. A bit at least...

Well, this is Steven Seagal you are talking about....

I'm a fan of his earlier movies (I ordered one with some gaming merchandise from a local online gaming site yesterday in fact) but as actors go, he's no Al Pacino, and as martial-arts-"actors" go he's no Bruce Lee or Tony Jaa.

I don't know if you can use his approach to movie making as a reflection of the man himself or not... but consider this.. in all the Seagal movies I have watched, and I have watched all his pre-direct-to-video era (when he actually did his own stunts and choreographed more than just himself slapping people and shooting them) many, many times... I can only think of one movie where even the lead antagonist got one or two shots in...

There is definately an ego there... in one aspect of his life at least..
