Customer Reviews

Loved the team of seagal and Keenan wayans.
happy girl
With "Under Siege 2" behind him, Steven Seagal could focus on the downward spiral of his Hollywood career, beginning with "The Glimmer Man".
Mike Sehorn
This is not a bad movie to watch (between average and good).

It is admitted that Steven Seagal, as an actor, is not of the "method" school of Brando and De Niro. You don't watch his films to see him act. If you want to see acting, then watch the powerhouses Humphrey Bogart or Jack Nicholson, but not Seagal, the seventh dan black belt aikidoist. His films are primarily made to thrill and entertain. With his erect posture, powerful build and frowning expression, he exerts an intimidating screen presence. Like a tornado sweeping across the torrid zone, he leaves the bad guys annihilated and in brief, hard-trimmed action scenes, he despatches villain after villain with either a bullet to the head, a chop to the throat, a thrust with a knife or a kick to the face. In this film at least, he also manages to be mildly humorous and even self-deprecating in his portrayal of a bead-wearing Buddhist cop. This is the first film in which he actually draws blood during a conflict with a bad guy. The action scenes are supreme. The dialogue is post-Tarantino tart and the film, as a whole, is wonderfully self-mocking.

O.K.-- Steven Seagal was not considered for a Best Actor award for this movie (nor for any of his other flicks). This is, however, an enjoyable little movie -- you just have to get past Seagal's wooden acting, his love beads, and the huge holes in the plot. Keenen Ivory Wayans' character worked well -- he gets credit for all of the intentional humor, including one particularly funny line.

I like to credit this as one of Stevens best movies. Because of its action scenes well written story plot with slight comedy and great actors. This is one of my favorite Steven Seagal movies. I enjoyed this movie very much. If you haven't seen this awesome film yet go see it I recommend it highly.

This is one of Segal's better movies. I would rate it with Under Siege in quality. Good plot, great supporting cast. He does not inject the PC [stuff] that many of his later movies seem to have.

I like this movie, its not Seagals best but it got mucha humour and good fight scenes. Steven Seagal being a buddhist is in itself cool(therefor my name). What else can I say?
A movie for those who like Steven Seagal!!

I am impressed first and foremost by the casting. I would have never guessed that a Wayans and Segal would work well together, but they really do. The compliment each others abilities quite well. With that in mind I should say that this really isn't your average run-of-the-mill police movie. We all know that Segal has been in a bunch of those. There is still plenty of action, and a lot of humerous scenes, so I don't think you will be dissapointed. I wasn't.

Steven Segal fights back in one of his best movies to date (the best being the Under Siege series). Plenty of kung fu fighting (it's nice to see Steve kicking baddies instead of just punching, knifing and shooting them all the time) and plenty of one liners from Wayans (the scene where he is watching Casablanca is hilarious). The only real let down in the movie is that Steve is trying to be a soft spoken Clint Eastwood type character, and you can't understand a word he says. Apart from that, top entertainment.

This movie is one of my personal favorites. It keeps you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. You had comedy, drama, suspense and action all rolled into one fantastic movie. Before this movie, I hadn't been a big fan of Keenan Ivory Wayans but he was actually very good in this film. Steven Seagal's performance was excellent and his martial art moves was over the top! I own this video and I never get tired of seeing it. It's all that and a bag of chips!!
