All-in-all, what we have here is 'classic' Seagal. And that means, for anyone who isn't an admitted fan, an uninspired outing.

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.

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

Just as foolish and formulaic as it sounds.

A truly disgraceful outing that amounts to little more than an unbelievable Steven Seagal self-love fest.

It's ugly and unpleasant but you may find it intensely compelling, much like a visit to the oral surgeon.

A brutish action movie that is as improbable as it is annoying.

Your average five-year-old could have constructed a plot with fewer holes in it.

Yet another action-thriller that just isn't very thrilling.

Subtract the gruesomeness, the language and some nekkid stuff, and the film is indistinguishable from an episode of a TV cop show.

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.
