The Glimmer Man | 1996 | R | - 3.8.7

Steven Seagal and Keenen Ivory Wayans are reluctantly partnered to solve a string of serial killings.

SEX/NUDITY 3 - Bare breasts seen on female corpses in a morgue, sexual innuendo.

VIOLENCE/GORE 8 - Photos of bloody murder scenes and bodies. In a couple of scenes we see bodies nailed to walls as if crucified with blood running down the wall. Corpses are seen in morgue. A few throats are slit open with a razor resulting in bloody gashes. A man is shot through the hand and foot with some blood. Threatening with guns and knives, chases, reckless driving, explosions, falls, many fight scenes where people are beaten up, sometimes with martial arts moves and we see punches, kicks and hear bones breaking; there is blood sometimes (face, nose). Many shootings result in blood. A man's head is beaten against a car, a man is impaled on a bulldozer shovel, a man falls and is impaled through the chin on a fence.

LANGUAGE 7 - About ten F-words, many scatological references, some mild obscenities, many anatomical references.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Law enforcement, serial killings, martial arts, Eastern religions, framing innocent people.

MESSAGE - Appearances can be deceiving.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
