Steven Seagal is the "Poor Man's" Chuck Norris


have any of you guys ever heard this or heard at least heard the poor man's comparison?

if so, where the hell did it come from?

do poor people ahve bad taste so they like steven seagal?
does seagal use less $ in production?

im totally baffled by the origin of this saying & am hoping someone knows what it means

for what its worth......

If Steven Seagal is the "Poor Man's" Chuck Norris, is Chuck Norris the "White Man's" Bruce Lee?

well the saying comes from the fact that the richer people have nicer things than the poorer people. for instance, the VCR is the poor man's TiVo. since the poor man cannot afford TiVo, they settle for the less useful VCR which serves a similar purpose.

Surely it should be the other way around. Seagal has had much more mainstream success than Chuck Norris

I don't anyone actually said that here. Honestly, when I say I like some of Seagal's older films it has nothing to do with his acting, yet for some reason his acting seems to be the first thing people comment on, which in turn I find funny because I find many people focus on actors and not acting.

I like the fight choreography in Seagal's films. Nothing more.

Yeah i like the use of stunt legs when there are kicking sequences, and the angles of shots in both Seagal and Norris's film work are done so well that you can't even tell these stunt people are doing all the work. I think Seagal is better cause even though they're crappy (i love em) he is still making movies, Norris is nursing what little hair he has left. Also, the fact that in one movie (Into the Sun i think it was called) Seagal speaks perfect japanese whenever he is talking to a male/yakuza or someone he is trying to get information from. But when Steven tries to talk to his sweet sweet japanese lady, hes all a flutter and speaks broken english to her... It really is the little things that make a movie...... why was there no poll (even though i see a landslide potential for Don King)

Steven Seagal and Chuck Norris should never be used in the same sentence. Chuck would kick you in the face if he knew about this thread.

..and chances are, he DOES know about this thread.

Actually the reason why many of the thugs look so good is because they are students of Seagal. For example, you will probably see this guy in most of Seagal's earlier movies, Haruo Matsuoka (see pic). This guy takes irimi nage like there is no tomorrow.

Seagal doesn't have a bona fide high rank in aikido. I've heard he was rapidly promoted for popularizing aikido in the movies (i.e. politics). However, his aikido is very interesting given his size.

I am less fond of Segal's newer movies. The one's I have watched have little or no aikido in therm, so I am not really interested.

Steven Seagal is great here is some of his work after his early films and before his newer films how can you say he is not a great actor? ? ?
