Added DiffLines:

*** In particular, R. Lee Ermey's mixed metaphor-laden praise of Forrest. Everything out of his mouth in this scene just comes across as CharacterShilling, and none of it makes the slightest bit of sense - particularly the pesos comment.
** Just about all of Seagal's "acting" qualifies, but the scene where he schools a bigoted bar patron has to take the cake. After beating the bigot to the point of bleeding, Forrest somehow makes the man realize the error of his ways in a drawn out attempt at drama while cheesy music swells in the background. This is all supposed to be taken completely seriously, mind you.

* StarDerailingRole: Well, it might be a bit of a stretch to call Steven Seagal a ''star,'' per say, but there's a reason that Seagal's movies started to end up in the "Straight to DVD" bin after this one.

** Also the movie's environmental message, which Creator/RogerEbert disparaged as "sanctimonious".

* AwesomeMusic: If there's one thing Seagal did right during production, it was hiring Creator/BasilPoledouris to score the movie (and the Seagal/Nasso Productions logo at the end). [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L0heez-7wlE Here's a suite.]]



** Meanwhile, they brought in John C. [=McGinley=] pre-Scrubs to play...a psychotic torture expert? Although this last one is probably the most YMMV of the whole lot; to some, he's the best thing in this movie and genuinely creepy.

* {{Jerkass}}: Seagal was reportedly an ''asshole'' during production of this film, going so far as to belittle '''MichaelCaine.''' As if [[SmallNameBigEgo Seagal's acting holds a candle to Caine's.]]
* JumpTheShark: Seagal's career was never the same after this movie flopped.
