Special Agent Derrick Vann is a man out to get the man who killed his partner but a case of mistaken identity leads him to Andy Fidler, a salesman with too many questions and a knack of getting in Vanns way.
Samuel L. Jackson,
A message movie wrapped around unlikable characters ......
No question Eugene Levy is the best thing in this film, playing a Jewish mobster. Believe it or not he is the most interesting character in "Silver Man", although his screen time is minimal. Who ever thought of using Audrey Lupke as the girl that men are fighting over? She is so self centered and unlikable, that all the audience could pray for is that someone, anyone, would kick her to the curb and let her go. But no, the entire plot revolves around her biker boyfriend and Silver Man fighting over her. Throw in a totally unnecessary sympathy angle regarding Silver Man's circus childhood, and an ending that comes out of nowhere. This movie tries to do way too much with characters that no one gives a damn about, and that is it's fatal flaw. - MERK
