StevenSeagal, who also directed and co-produced (it was his first film after ''Film/UnderSiege''), is Forrest Taft. In the beginning of the film, he is working as a contractor for Aegis Energy, putting out an oil rig fire in Alaska. With large explosives. Hugh Palmer who is in charge of running the rig is blaming the oil company (Aegis), saying they supplied faulty protectors. Forrest scoffs at this at the time as he blows up the burning rig, but notes that they ''were'' faulty protectors--only, of course, he blew up that evidence.

** Also, it portrays the oil company as exploiting the natives. But it also says they have a contract... generally, those contracts include paying out dividends to the original owners of the mineral rights. It should however, be pointed out that the rig was in fact constructed wholly of faulty parts. letting the rig come online would've resulted in a catastrophic oil spill of a greater magnitude than the one the film starts with. In this instance, destroying the rig WAS the lesser of two evils.

%%* GreenAesop* GreenAesop: Seagal's message is that oil is bad, oil companies are bad, and anybody who makes a living in the production of oil deserves to die by his hands. Now bend over and take that message for 90 minutes.

Mind you, her only crime was being a totally harmless employee of the villain, but Steven Seagal had a point to make, so of course she deserves to die along with all the other people simply doing their jobs on the rig.
