Chris Myers (Adam Baldwin "Chuck," "The Patriot," "Full Metal Jacket") was climbing the corporate ladder until an event sent him spiraling down. Karen Myers (Ellen Locy "Dr. T and the Women") wants to forget all about her ex-husband until circumstances bring the two face to face with their horrible secret-- a secret that has devastated their worlds. Together, with the help of Popeye (Tom Wright "Barbershop" "The World Trade Center"), they find the key to unlocking their tragic past.
The Keyman is truly spectacular. The story was moving, the characters fully developed and the acting was brilliant. Adam Baldwin, as the lead will bring you to tears from his very first scene and will take you on a journey of emotion from laughter to raw pain. The script is tight and the dialogue is haunting. This movie takes the cliché of `people make mistakes' and gives it meaning beyond its words. It shows you the ugly consequences of those mistakes and how learning to forgive, not only others, but ourselves has more healing power than years of self-loathing. We may not be able to change the past, but we can learn to move on and start to live again. The Keyman is a story that will stick with you and a movie that will touch your heart. --The Keyman at IMDB
The Keyman is a triumph in independent film-making. It manages to keep your attention from start to finish without losing sight of the bigger picture. The performances are top notch from the three main characters, with my special praise going to Adam Baldwin and Tom Wright, who really stand out. The film never felt overly long because the pacing seems to have been timed in Switzerland! Sure the film, like every other, has it flaws. The character that Ellen Locy plays maybe could have used something more and you feel that Tom Wright's Popeye may at any moment come out with "I ain't getting' on no plane fool!", but these things pale into the background when faced with the films question of what would happen to you if a similar tragedy had happened. And, you know that every has that one scene that you'll remember it for. Well here it simply has to be Adam Baldwin's performance when we finally see what happened to his baby in flashback and his present day "redemption" if you will. Stunning. --The Keyman at IMDB
