On Deadly Ground is a 1994 action film starring Steven Seagal as Forrest Taft, a former CIA operative turned oil firefighter who finds himself battling an oil company intent on driving out an Alaskan tribe from their land in order to get the oil rights. The film, whose cast included Michael Caine and R. Lee Ermey, marked the directorial debut of Seagal, who decided to add a little more of an ecological message to the feature in the midst of all the action.
