This was a cool movie...good cast, good story, action packed....a lot better than some of Seagals previous movies
Maximum Conviction is a 2012 action thriller starring Steven Seagal and "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and directed by Keoni Waxman.
It should be an easy day's work for former black ops operative Cross (Steven Seagal) and his partner Manning (Stone Cold Steve Austin). They and their group have been hired to oversee and orchestrate the decommissioning of a secret military penal facility, and organize the transport of the inmates to their new civilian prison.
Cross shows who's early on by beating up a large inmate who steps out of line, while Manning is given the task of running the prison's garbage facility. The day gets worse when a rolled up note is found that was accidentally dropped by an inmate, detailing times and locations for an attack on the facility.
Cross, on his way back to the prison from running an errand, and Manning, still dealing with that garbage facility, are suddenly involved in a foothold situation as Chris Blake (Michael Pare) and his mercenaries, posing as marshals, take over the complex.
Blake and his men are after the two newest inmates—Samantha Mendez (Steph Song) and Charlotte Walker (Aliyah O'Brien)—for their own purposes—Blake wants the information that's in an implant that's inside of Samantha, who is a CIA courier, because it could lead to a lot of money for Blake, and it turns out that Charlotte is working for Blake. It's up to Cross, Manning, and their team to stop Blake and his men.
Blake and his men arrive and take over the facility. Blake cuts off Warden Samuel's finger to make him do as he says. Manning is in the garbage facility and is attacked by Blake's men. He manages to take them out. Later on Charlotte escapes as she wants to get paid. Eventually both sides meet up. Blake thinks he has Cross and Manning outgunned and then flees the scene. Manning catches up with Collins and kills him by impaling him on a bench. Samantha kills Charlotte and Cross and Blake exchange gunshots till both run out of ammo. Blake attempts to strike Cross physically only to be smashed into a wall and suffer dreadful injuries. Cross talks to him about being a warrior in which Blake replies 'well that's me im the f***ing bad guy'. Cross says hes the good guy then throws Blake into the laser trip wires, killing Blake. He reunites with Samantha and Manning.wiki
