The Glimmer Man
release year:1996 genre:action/drama viewing setting:home laserdisc, 11/9/97 what I expected:no expectations (not a criticism, just a fact) what I got:Pretty tight action/murder mystery with sinister overtones.
synopsis:A serial killer is murdering whole families, but it may just be a cover-up for something else. Two cops with little in common are partnered with each other to solve the case.
impressions:As I said, this was pretty tight in terms of plot. It had some good action moments, too. The bad guys could have been developed a wee bit more, but since Seagal tends to kill them upon first contact, they mostly remained characterless.
acting:Seagal did okay, Keenan Ivory Wayans did well. No one else registered.
final word:Fairly entertaining, as a crime drama with bits of good fighting.
