Justin Lee Collins, a (former) UK celebrity, is possibly the most advanced student of Sensei Seagal ever. Collins nagged or simply pushed and persevered into getting a one-on-one documentary with Chief Seagal. I watched this masterpiece years ago. It was only shown once, then never again.
Now, it has appeared on YouTube.
Collins’ first encounter with Chief Seagal is on the set of True Justice. Collins spots the man himself and cannot contain himself and walks straight into a take, where Seagal is about to deliver a line. “You fucked up my take”. “Oh my God, sorry, sir, sir I…”. “What the fuck, you’re fucking up my take”. It’s about as tense as it is funny as the real Seagal loses his temper. Collins is afraid he’s screwed up his documentary, his fears are doubled when later, Seagal stonewalls Collins and drives past him, giving him a stare of death. Seagal knows who he is, Collins gives chase on foot. When Seagal’s convoy stops, a disgruntled Seagal becomes more conscious of the cameras and takes Collins to his trailer.
Later, Collins is invited to Seagal’s private residence and this is where this show develops as the greatest Steven Seagal documentary ever. A captivated Collins is shown Seagal’s private collection of guitars and how the Sensei keeps an assault rifle with 100 rounds of ammunition ready to go at his bedside, unlike the other assault rifles with only 20 rounds laying around randomly downstairs. The house is also furnished with bullet proof glass in every room.
Seagal also regales his student with a most manly of fight stories…
He says one day on the set of a movie, a deadly fighter showed up and that he knew this was “the guy”. Steven says he knew to look in the man’s eye that he wanted to fight to the death. Then, pre-empting his mortal foe, Seagal says he performed a running flying kick. Whilst in the air, says the Sensei, he realised the man was only joking. But it was too late. The kick connected, sending the man flying 20 feet through the establishment’s doors, down a flight of stairs, knocking him unconscious.
Act now. Watch this documented one-on-one lesson, who knows when they’ll remove it.
