The Glimmer Man – 1996

IMDB: The Glimmer Man – 1996

IMDB Rating: 5.3/10

Rotten Tomatoes: 12%

Two cops are drawn together to solve the serial killings that have been terrorising L.A. One is a life long cop not getting any traction on the case, the other is a rather unusual, semi-mystical “new age” cop whose intelligence background in the CIA and armed forces leads him to be a blatant butt kicking force to be reckoned with. (Guess which one Seagal plays?)

After saving a kid from blowing some air conditioning into his skull, he comes up against the step father and his “right hand henchman” who tries to instil an element of subservient qualities into him. But when he turns them down, they make it personal by taking out his ex wife and her new husband.

I first saw this movie on TV and taped it to watch it again (did you know that doing so is actually illegal in a lot of places?!?) and it is nice to actually see Seagal punching and kicking people rather than shooting them as his has in his later larger years.
