Editorial Reviews

Detective Jacob King (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. King'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.

Oh Steven, how the kind of mighty have not really fallen that far.

I happen to be a huge Steven Seagal fan. Sad, I know, but this movie was actually relatively good considering what he's been putting out lately. Don't expect a lot and you'll be pleasantly surprised. If you watch this expecting "Under Siege" or "Above the Law" then you'll be disappointed. I've seen most of his movies and this is far superior to a few others he's done in the past. If you're considering it, my advice is to give it a chance.

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.

Steven Seagal is going after two completely unrelated serial killers. That is the story of this movie. That is the ENTIRE story of this movie. One guy he just takes a ball peen hammer and smashes the dude's arm over and over again. And after he does that? He goes, "I think your arm's broken!" So stupidly great. That said, a lot of the action is godawfully shot to the point of hilarity, you can tell someone else is doing the fights for Seagal, and then right in the middle for a split second they'll cut to Seagal just standing there as nothing happens, like he'd only shoot a couple seconds of him looking like he was about to fight, and then went "okay just cut that in between my stunt man doing all the work." Seriously, you never seen Seagal's face during any actual fight scene, except for those really quick cutaways when nothing is happening.

Wow this was bad. This is the first time I've felt compelled to post a review for a movie, that's how bad it was. A porcine Seagal, complete with some kind of odd southern accent. Obvious stunt double. Gratuitous fight scenes that go on forever with Seagals innumerable punches and kicks seeming to have no affect on the bad guys. Cut and jerk stop motion photography. Inexplicable ending that seems to have been inserted as an after-thought. Just a bad movie from start to finish. Kind of like the "Plan 9 from Outer Space" of the action movies.
