Editorial Reviews

Detective Jacob Stillwell (Steven Seagal) is one of the most celebrated homicide detectives in the country. His brutal delivery of street justice is legendary among the men and women of law enforcement. But on this latest case, he may have finally met his match Lazerus, a cunning and perversely violent killer who is on the loose and terrorizing the inner city. Stillwell s desperate pursuit of Lazerus takes him into the dark, depraved Memphis underworld of street sex and senseless violence.

The career of action film star Steven Seagal has had enough ups and downs to appear like a rollercoaster ride in one of any hundred theme parks across the country. Beginning in 1988 with ABOVE THE LAW, Seagal burst upon the scene as a martial arts master in a film that featured plot, good acting and enough action that involved non-hand to hand combat to keep audiences screaming for more.

With each new film, Seagal developed more mystery about his personal life, played roles that were a little deeper and eventually was able to parlay his clout to make films that followed items dear to his heart. Unfortunately the more he did so, the smaller the crowds to his films.

In recent years Seagal's films have taken on that dreaded identity of direct to DVD features, movies that play in either no theater or limited run. This doesn't mean that the quality is lacking all the time, just that the studio behind it has less faith in the films than Seagal does. So he has kept making them knowing fans would show.

Fans support him enough that a book has recently been released, SEAGALOGY: A STUDY OF THE A** KICKING FILMS OF STEVEN SEAGAL by Vern, a contributing writer for the ain't it cool news web site. The book covers Seagal's films from beginning to end. But I'm not sure that it included the newest release, KILL SWITCH.

Seagal plays Jacob King, a detective working in Memphis, TN, and hot on the trail of a serial killer. The film opens on a case where a psycho has implanted C4 explosives in a young woman's chest with a timer set to go off in minutes. Confronting the killer, King beats a confession out of him in time to save the girl while inflicting enough damage to require medical support for said killer.

Kill Switch (2008) is a gritty and edgy thriller set in Memphis, featuring Steven Seagal as Jacob King, a police detective on the trail of a pair of psychotic killers. Bille Joe Hill (Mark Collie) is a sadistic nutcase who enjoys using a knife. Lazereus (Michael Filipowich), is deeply into astrology, the occult, and heavy metal. Hidden in the shadows, driven to kill by inner demons, he is the serial killer known as 'the Grifter'. With FBI agent Frankie Miller (Holly Dignard) poking around, King has his hands full. In one of his last film appearances, the late Isaac Hayes adds some class and humor, as an overtaxed coroner.

Seagal's films are often the subject of harsh criticism, and while Jeff King directs, Seagal can be held to account more than usual, as he did write the screenplay. The film moves along pretty well, but there are some problems with the fight scenes. Some of the action sequences may produce dizziness or eye strain, due to the frequent use of a technique where the same event is shown several times. This repeat view technique, combined with the usual quick cutting, use of doubles, insertion of Seagal's face, and changing of speeds, leads to some disjointed looking scenes. One fight in a bar seems to go on forever. This is followed by an extended, poorly executed gunfight in the street. Things like this, detracts from the general enjoyment of the film.

Besides agent Miller, Seagal has written in a number of females for his character to interact with. Karyn Michelle Baltzer is Celine, a police officer whose role in King's life is not spelled out, though she is often in King's home wearing a robe. Daniella Evangelista is a lovely barmaid, who somehow winds up pinned to a door.

The stunt double sucked, but it is NOT as BAD as the stunt double from Black Dawn!!! The only part where the stunt double is painfully obvious is the fight sequence at Mojo Blues. This problem can be solved by pressing FFWD. The rest of the film is decent. The trailer from SPIKE TV makes this movie look awesome, but it is only mediocre. The dubbing is annoying at times, but die hard Seagal fans should be used to it by now. The final fight against Billy Jo appears to be all Seagal. True Seagal fans should recognize Billy Jo from Fire Down Below (Mark Collie). It was just as COOL to see Seagal vs. Collie again just like Seagal vs. Trejo.

Overall this movie is like a 2.75 out of 5. Seagal does kick a lot of @ss in this movie. Issac Hayes made a nice cameo in this film. Two things are guaranteed in any Seagal movie: 1) Seagal kicks @SS and he is omnipotent and 2) Really really HOT women!!

The two hot chicks in this movie made it worth a look. Holly Dignard (Frankie Miller), and Karyn Michelle Baltzer (Celine) are both smokin HOT babes!!! I also love Anna Mae Routledge (Librarian) and Ali Liebert (Bartender @ All About Eve). Awww man! She is so sexy!!! I love Ali Liebert!!!

So, if you are a fan of Steven Seagal and you enjoy the eye candy of hot chicks, you will like Kill Switch. If you didn't like Kill Switch, then ... I'ma stick my size 14 up yo @SS!!!

P.S. The Blu-ray picture quality for Kill Switch is 10 times better than Driven To Kill.

Kill Switch is another DTV starring Steven Seagal (who also wrote) as a Detective investigating a series of grisly murders.It's got a good plot kinda Seven-like but with alot more action.I only have a few complaints being the Seagal fan i am.His double is too noticeable and the quick cuts.These and the ending are the only downfall.All in all this is a good movie it has it's high points but i liked Driven to Kill much better.

Topic From this Discussion
What's with the jumpy/skippiness of Seagal's recent movies?
This was the director's fault or the editing. Yeah, they did that on purpose. Billy Joe falling out the window was annoying. I guess they attempted to intensify the crash through the glass. Kill Switch is comin to BD soon and I almost bought it, but then I watched the DVD again and decided not... Read More
