The Glimmer Man (1996) – Steven Seagal

A fun concept with some good action and good humour although it does get slow at times. It’s a decent movie if you haven’t seen it in a while. Steven Seagal is in his element here as a wildcard former agent of undisclosed calibre, turned Buddhist monk, now working as Lieutenant Jack Cole, helping the police track down a killer who has made things personal. Seagal’s real life personality and fantasies come out in this movie. Supporting cast are decent, including Seagal’s sidekick Detective Jim Campbell played by Keenan Ivory Wayans, and Seagal’s hotshot adversary Donald Cunningham played by John Murice Jackson.

The movie lacks a significant female role and could do with a bit more of a busy script, but overall it’s a fairly enjoyable movie if you’ve not seen it in many years.
