While Michael Caine's working-class British charm has earned him two Academy Awards and featured roles in everything from Austin Powers to Inception, the actor's considerable talents were unable to elevate the ridiculous Steven Seagal action film, On Deadly Ground.
The film, which Seagal also directed, was the worst kind of vanity project. Centered on a renegade employee's efforts to protect a group of native Eskimos from the greedy oil company, the movie was excoriated by critics and did little to establish Seagal as a legitimate actor. The only way On Deadly Ground works is if you watch it as part of a Steven Seagal drinking game.
In addition to On Deadly Ground, Caine also earned terrible reviews for his work in Jaws 4: The Revenge. On the plus side, at least Caine knew his performance was awful. As he later remarked, ""I have never seen it, but by all accounts it is terrible. However, I have seen the house that it built, and it is terrific!"
