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.

Steven Seagal fans will still enjoy it. This was one of his last Hollywood movies before he went to Europe to crank out movies over there. If you have seen his other movies, add this one to the list. Keenan Ivory Wayans has the job of being his partner, but we know Seagal is a Lone Wolf. The plot is weak, but there is the usual Seagal action. This isn't his best, but it is not his worst. If you are not a fan of his, do not make this the first movie of his you watch. He has made better movies. The final touch, would I buy it? Yes, if you can get a copy used or on sale, but not at full price!

I thought that Steven Seagal was at his best in this movie. He was a lot funnier than he was in his previous movies and his fight scenes were more realistic than in some of his other movies. Wayans was also a great actor. I thought the cast was excellent and the plot was interesting. This movie was a lot of action and fun, and I'd recommend this movie to those who liked Seagal in other movies.

The TV rating of this film was one star. But if the viewer is in the mood for an action film with a hero that is unbeatable, with double cross and revenge, then this is the film for him. Seagal is given a title like Superman and Batman. He is the Glimmer man. All is quiet, nothing seen anywhere, then a glimmer, Seagal is there and people are dead.
In this film, Seagal once worked for a part of the CIA that handled the hardest assignments. Then he got religion and quite. After a while, he joined the police. He does not want to fight unless he has to. To the delight of viewers, this happens often.
There are lots of fights in the film and lots of people are killed.

Glimmer man is Steven Seagal's best movie in my opinion. It combines the Seagal action with a twist of sly humor and a great chemistry with Keenan Ivory Wayans. The scene in the restaurant when Seagal comes in to talk to Mr. Smith is one of the best scenes in the movie for me. Wayans acting is top notch. I can watch Glimmer Man over and over.

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 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.

This movie has lots of action and humor. Seagal and Wayans are a great team. Seagal is his usual "monkish" self, but always shines when it comes to beating up on the bad guys. Wayans offsets Seagal well to throw in the humor.
