Product Description

Steven Seagal (Driven to Kill) unleashes his wrath – and his fists – in this fast-paced thriller about an ex-cop caught in a web of deceit, racism and murder. Full of high-octane stunts and eye-popping action, The Keeper is a nonstop adrenaline rush!

Double-crossed by his rogue partner and forced to retire, Los Angeles street cop Rolland Sallinger (Seagal) accepts a gig guarding the beautiful daughter of a wealthy businessman. But when mobsters kidnap her, Sallinger’s job turns from protector to hunter as he untangles a dangerous web of lies and murder. Now, in a race against time, Sallinger must use his wits, weapons and brute force to get her back – before it’s too late!

New-minted reality star Steven Seagal is not only top-billed but also cowrote (sans credit) this direct-to-video actioner that delivers his patented combination of martial arts and flinty glares. Seagal is a much-decorated cop whose partner tries to kill him over some ill-gotten drug money. But as any Seagal fan already knows, the man is Hard to Kill, so after a quick recuperation, he's back in action, but now as the bodyguard to the daughter of a wealthy oil magnate. The attempt to forge a thriller along the lines of Man on Fire is commendable, if not entirely achievable, given the film's threadbare budget and frequent gaffes (Seagal's character is Rolland Sallinger in the first half and Ballinger in the second). But the star is still limber enough to provide what his followers desire: a fistful of rock-'em, sock-'em fights and shootouts, with the added advantage that Seagal, instead of his stunt double, appears to participate in all of them. Though his best days (Above the Law, Under Siege) appear to be far behind him, The Keeper shows that Steven Seagal is still capable of tossing out kicks for those willing to follow. --Paul Gaita

The career of Steven Seagal has jumped from high to low to mediocre. When he began his action film set the bar for fight sequences just as it had been set by Bruce Lee years prior. But as he aged and became more popular, his films began to take on a different tone, preaching instead of fighting, made by less skilled directors more focused on his acting ability than his martial arts skills. And it was those skills that drew fans to the seats, not the acting.

This is not to say that Seagal's acting skills aren't up there. While made fun of by impersonators and joked about by night time talk show hosts, he's actually not bad. Unfortunately a number of his movies were. But that involved more plot lines, scripts and directors who didn't quite no how to use him. Such is not the case with THE KEEPER.

Seagal returns to form as tough as nails cop Rolland Salinger whose dirty partner shoots him during the film's opening sequence. Rolland survives and even gets revenge when the cop tries to kill him in the hospital. But even though wronged, the force demands he take an early retirement (a nice plot line that plays to Seagal's age rather than ignore it).

At home recovering, Rolland continues to nurse himself back to speed while relying on pain killers to help him out. Not overly so but to Rolland this is a sign of weakness and as the film progresses, he depends on them less and less.

While deciding what to do about the forced retirement, Rolland gets a call from old friend Conner Wells (Steph Duvall), an ex Texas policeman who struck it rich. It seems that someone has tried to kidnap Conner's daughter Nikita (Liezl Carstens) and taken out her bodyguard in the process.

Lots of his direct-to-DVD flicks are hit and miss (I like 'em all), but this movie was better than most. Maybe he's working out, or losing some weight from his TV show, whatever the reason: Seagal is getting into better shape, and the quality of the D2D movies are better as well (I do not miss the crappy voiceover dubbing of some of his movies).

Recently wrapping up of very enjoyable October month of nothing but horror we decided to get back into another foundation; glorious b action. What better way to start the evening off then with a double feature opening with the transcendent Death Ring? Absolutely nothing is exactly right. Naturally the only way to close it out would have to be with the legendary Steven "Panda Bear" Seagal. Now you may be wondering how we got our hands on The Keeper before it's release date. Well Sid and the old boy Seagal go way back and always get a pre-screen run before the masses get their hands on it's action packed goodness. Coming off some recent "less then desirable" features, The Keeper proved to be somewhat of a throwback to vintage Seagal. Sure he's still quite portly but smart as a whip and really picked up the a** kicking factor that he's famous for.

This round we start with Seagal playing the usual rogue LA cop character named Rolland Sallinger. He along with his partner bust up a drug ring taking 2 of their members out with some sweet gun action. As Rolland gets ready to call it in his partner winds up shooting him since they couldn't come to terms on stealing the cool 2 mil sitting in front of them. Naturally Seagal plays by the books and winds up shot and retired because of it. He was a good man. Being newly retired doesn't keep him down for long when he gets a call from an old pal with a problem. He brings Seagal in as a high payed bodyguard to is daughter, which of course proves to be the best move. The rest is filled with some very entertaining beat downs, great laughs, and an actual audible dialogue from the 99% of the time whispering Seagal.

Really good Steven Seagal movie. I like them all. Maybe It's because I did some research into what the man has been about. His accomplishments as a human being 'blew me away' (ha ha). I like 'good' movies too. But sometimes it's nice to sit back and watch some good old fasioned macho alpha-male kick-ass fake violence. God knows, there's enough real violence in the world to run away from once in a while. And I pretty much know exactly what I'm getting and how it's going to end and who's gonna win! Bottom line - I don't know why I like him and I don't question it. I don't like all action stars or action movies, or action genres - zombie flicks and tons of blood don't do much for me. I don't review those movies 'cause I don't watch them. I don't understand why anyone would take the time to dis a Steven Seagal flick because they don't like him. If you don't like his stuff, why are you watching it? Duh.

I'm a big huge fan of Steven Seagal. I mean I had all his movies (maybe I have some that He does not have in his own collection). The plot in this movie is that some bad guys kidnapped a friend's daughter on his watch and now he needs to get her back. I enjoyed the movie at least is better than a few from the last movies he got out on DVD. This is not an masterpiece as Out for Justice or Above the Law ( "Have you seen Nico?") but is very enjoyable for any Steven Seagal fan. If you saw Man on Fire from Denzel Washington you may like this one. (But The Keeper is not as good as Man on Fire).
