    ok ok there both horrible actors we all know that but im gonna give heads up to steven seagal as the last 2 movies he made were excellent pistol whipped urban justice i dont normally watch movies more then once i ended up watching urban justice twice i have not watched a jean claude van damme movie for almost 3 years last one was HORRIBLE hes really gone down hil plus i see more seagal movies on Tv i give the edge as a slighty better actor to seagal whos been in movies with tommy lee jones kurt russel gary busy dmx
    there might be an undersiege 3 i hope it plays in the theaters

    Im starting to like Van Damn , as in a 'it's so bad ,it's good' way.
    Nah I admit, I thought Cyborg & Bloodsport were pretty cool.

    His band is awesome!

    Van Damme? No feckin' way. Seagal is the MAN. Watch Out For Justice and see his mighty acting skills at work in his New Joisey accent and heart-wrenching tales of his childhood. Brings a tear to the eye.

    Van Damme. Even his direct to video stuff is better than Segal's direct to video stuff. Case in point. See Flight of Fury. A Segal movie and quite possibly one of the worst movies ever made.

    Ok, so Van Damme might kick your ass. But only Seagal could kick your ass, write a song commemerating your ass-whupping, and sing said song on stage whilst accompanying himself on guitar.

    are you sure about that drake did you should see stevens last 3 movies are excellent van damme has really gone down hill he was never ever in a good movie with a real action hero like tommy lee jones kurt russel dmx gary busey if he counts seagal played in films with them plus by 2000 seagals movies were still in the theaters an van dammes by then were straight to video

    Remember that time in Exit Wounds Seagal shot down a helicopter with a pistol? Unfortunately I do too.

    The last 20 or 30 Segal movies i've seen had him playing a man with one facial expression that wants revenge.

    He probably is sure if he's seen as many cheap, generic and boring DTV Segal movies as I have.

    Dolph Lungdren in Universal Soldier. Plus he's been in movies with solid non-action actors like Lance Henrikson, Mickey Rourke and Raul Julia.

    Segal died in about the first 15 minuites of Executive Decision with Kurt Russell and DMX is hardley anything to brag about. I'll give TLJ and Busey thougth, even it was the same movie for both.

    Van Damme had more theatrically released films then Segal did. Plus Exit Wounds is the only one Segal has had this decade, which was only a couple of years after Van Damme's last and was total shit anyway.

    and on topic, I think Seagal is the better of the 2. Van damme has some ok stuff out there, but I like Seagal's more kill them now, make jokes later attitude in the films I've seen him in. Also I like seeing the way that he incorporates aikido into his fights. Van Damme is just too much of a johnny cage character in his films for me to really take seriously

    Stallone is where its at currently, Rambo 4 was the best action movie in years and The Expendables sounds like its going to be of similar calibur.
