Okay, not bad for an old man I guess.
18 April 2010 | by Samiam3See all my reviews

As Steven Seagal is no longer in his prime, so is the character he portrays in The Keeper. Some things haven't changed of course, No matter what name he goes by, he is still the same butt kicking rogue he has always portrayed, with the facial expression of a Maori Head.

The plot seems kind of pointless, but then again that is the least of worries in a Seagal film. He is recruited from California to help a wealthy ex-cop and an old friend who lives in Texas, and is in need of a body guard for his daughter. She has been kidnapped by some business rivals. The first question we ask is why, turn to Seagal. Strangely enough, the character asks that very question in one scene. The answer he gets makes little sense.

So this is the first of a few things that needs to be fixed in The Keeper. There is also the matter of Seagal's acting, which was never very good to begin with, but now, at his present age of fifty something, is sounds like he is struggling to even get words out, let alone deliver lines. Unless you have a good speaker system, you may have to turn the volume way up to hear. the climax was okay, but the ending is terrible, almost non existent, another couple minutes would have been nice.

Quite frankly though, I don't care that much. The fact that Seagal can still hold my attention despite the fact that he's losing it, must count for something. I still have many to see, but from those I have, I'd say this is about average, maybe a little less.
