Directed by John Grey (When He's Not a Stranger (1989), A Place for Annie (1994) and Born to Be Wild (1995)), this is a very silly action film which gives Seagal, who also produced the film, another chance to take on baddies in his own unique way. This does have some well staged action sequences, but it's all been done before elsewhere. But, it's the sort of action film you'd expect from the 1990's, brainless and cheesy. Jack Cole (Steven Seagal) used to work as an intelligence agent, known as The Glimmer Man, because he moves so fast, the bad guys only catch a glimpse of him before they're dead. Cole now works for the LAPD, and he's partnered with Jim Campbell (Keenen Ivory Wayans), who is no-nonsense and does his work by the book. They team up to find a serial killer known as The Family Man, who has just murdered Cole's ex-wife While Cole's fingerprints are found at the scene, he's cleared of it as he can prove he wasn't there, Cole suspects that someone from his intelligence days has set him up, which leads him to his old friend Smith (Brian Cox) and crime boss Frank Deverell (Bob Gunton). It's a very silly action film, Seagal gets to show off his martial arts abilities again, even if his acting abilities are questionable at best. But that's not his fault, he has a certain likeable quality that make his films watchable. This might not be one of his best, but it has good brainless action.
