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).

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

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.

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

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

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.
