Connor's daughter Nikkita (a good Liezl Carstens - but that maybe my libido talking, I'm not sure) is the usual rich kid socialite kind who is dating up and coming boxer Mason Silver (played by Arron Shiver) and at first treats Seagal with the usual cinematic contempt that these movies always display and doesn't want her life handled by the pony tailed avenger, but after a few star struck looks between them, she soon begins to warm to Seagal's porky charms. Unknown to our pony tailed hero however, Connor is caught up in some bad business with a bunch of very bad men (yes, its that level of writing) and when Nikita's not so loveable boyfriend organises a kidnap attempt on Nikita's life - Seagal goes all Denzel Washington and unleashes his inner 'Man on Fire' on all and sundry culminating in a final kick off gun battle at Connor's home!
To be fair to Seagal, this time out - efforts do seem to have been made. He looks better than he has been in recent movies and he seems to be making a point to be more active in the 'thespian' department. He actually seems to be taking part in the film this time around, and not just a badly dubbed, awfully body doubled shadow of his former self.Read more ›
F-bombs, silicon nudity
Anyway back to "The Keeper", the good news is that he does all the fights himself, and some are quite brutal, with the usual array of kicks, snaping arms and flying through random coffee tables are in full count.
The next good piece of news is the terrible dubbing which has pluaged his films of late is not here, there is some at the beggining and that is only a couple of lines and it is harly noticable.
a very good film with enough action to keep you amused for the duration.
Lets hope that the next film he does will be even better.
The last ones like Against the Dark, Kill Switch and Driven to kill were all pretty good movies.
This latest one might have even made it into theaters if Seagal Movies didn't retain a certain distrust from the audience.
As for the Plot:
Seagal plays a Cop who is betrayed and shot by his partner, but survives. Soon after he is discharged from the force due to medical complications. Moments after getting the dismissal notice he receives a Call from an old friend of his who is now a rich property owner in Texas begging him to help him out with a big security problem. His daughter was recently the victim of a kidnapping attempt and he begs Seagal to look after her. Of course the noble knight can't refuse a plea from an old friend.
Well long story short he travels there fights a lot of bad guys, kills a bunch of them and the whole process of doing so looks really great.
Of course this Movie can't keep up with $100 Million Productions but it can easily keep up with such movies as "War" or the "Transporter"-Movies.
I can only speak for the Blu Ray but the PQ is excellent and the DTS HD Master Sound is also pretty great.
For Seagal Fans this should be a no brainer and for fans of decent action flicks you might wanna try it.
Seagal plays Sallinger or Ballinger depending on where you join the film, an ex cop who gets betrayed by his partner at the beginning, nearly killed, and has to nurse himself back to help, all the while complaining about taking pills and not having long enough jackets.
He gets a call from a mate in Texas, who offers him a job and a hat to look after his daughter after there was a kidnappimg attempt on her. The rest is pure filler, there is something to do with uranium, and the girls boyfriend being a bit of a idiot, but it's all down to the action.
Part Hard to kill (the first act), part The Hard Corps, and mostly Man On Fire, this has to be Seagals best film in over five years.
The story is good, Seagal looks like he is putting some effort into his role finally, and their is no evidence of a stunt double or voice double this time.
It still looks cheaply made, but at least it wasn't filmed in Romania. There are a few plot holes, especially at the beginning, why is his Niece actually in the film? there is no point, and we never really get to know how well Sallinger knew his partner.
The action scenes are okay, a lot more exciting than Seagal previous efforts, and the bad guys really know how to fall after being shot.
So it's not the greatest film in the world, but for Seagal, it's a triumph, it's a shame to know he never put in this much effort with Sony, then he would be more respected.
