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

That being said, surprisingly, for one of HIS movies that is directed and/or produced by HIM, this plot seems to actually make sense and flow correctly. And the characters seem to actually have proper reactions to what is going on around them (you know, being TRAUMATIZED about the fact that I was just kidnapped and help for ransom, not acting so blaze like this is so normal I'm just used to it), so kudos to the writers and actors for that. So, I would definitely say this is one of his better movies, and would recommend it to Seagal fans, and anyone who wants to see what the fuss is about with him. Still, keep in mind, it's a Seagal film, not a Hollywood blockbuster, so expect the same formatted and easy to predict plot that comes with it, bland dialogue, one dimensional characters, and of course, the beautiful martial arts, seamlessly choreographed fights, and for the men out there, the naked women in the club, nice cars, and big guns.
Too plodding and stilted dialogue these days. But I saw the reviews
and took a chance. It was fun to be taken back to the way
it used to be. Action, and an actual plot.
So I had fun watching him teach permanent lessons
to bullies and felons that they sorely need.
