Although this slick Seagal action pic won't convert die-hard detractors, aficionados will note that he's both gained weight and lightened up.

A lean and mean exploitation thriller, The Glimmer Man might not be original or memorable, but the goods are delivered with reasonable flair and efficiency.

Seagal gives us a fairly good Bruce Lee impression in a film that is more moronic than it should be.

John Gray's The Glimmer Man is strictly for Steven Seagal fans (if there is such a species).

Keenen Ivory Wayans is so much more interesting, lively, and fun than Seagal you wish that he were the star of the film.

The plot of The Glimmer Man involves not only the Family Man but Our Evil Secret Government, the Russian Mafia and Rich Powerful Politicians -- the three stooges of action cinema in the '90s.

Most of the action scenes occur in the dark and are so heavily edited, it's hard to know whose limbs and faces are being splintered by Cole.
January 1, 2000
All-in-all, what we have here is 'classic' Seagal. And that means, for anyone who isn't an admitted fan, an uninspired outing.

January 1, 2000
Just as foolish and formulaic as it sounds.
January 1, 2000
It's ugly and unpleasant but you may find it intensely compelling, much like a visit to the oral surgeon.
January 1, 2000
A brutish action movie that is as improbable as it is annoying.
January 1, 2000
Your average five-year-old could have constructed a plot with fewer holes in it.

Sadly, the surprisingly podgy Seagal spends far too much time contemplating and not enough time kicking Russian butt.
