What I miss most- the laughter
13 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So me and my friends have routinely laughed our heads off at the badly awesome collection of Seagal "not quite" classics. The Keeper still has some of those same laugh out loud scenes. But this movie's biggest problem is that it is marginally better than his other straight-to-home movies, but is still a lot worse than movies I enjoyed for their actual appeal. I prefer my Seagal movies to be either better than okay (Under Siege) or laughably terrible, yet entertaining (Killswitch). This movie falls in between to simply bad. One note that has been confirmed by IMDb.com and other reviewers: it was exceptionally odd that his last name suddenly gets switched from Sallinger to Ballinger. I did get a great amount of laughter from that. Also, how he stealthily manages to steal a compact handgun from a woman's purse in the hospital, even though the nurse in the room declared him to be very unconscious to take out someone coming to kill him. Made me have to pause the movie to laugh.
