Plot: Roland Sallinger is an LA cop who after nearly being killed by his greedy partner, and eventually being forced to retire for medical reasons, flees to San Antonio, Texas, after being asked ... Runtime: 94 mins Release Date: 03 Oct 2009
Just watched THE KEEPER and was pleasantly surprised. Sure, it wasn't 'Out For Justice', but it was a lot better movie, than it's distributors give it credit for can't believe they printed an earlier draft of the script on the back cover......don't the people at OPTIMUM have proof-readers for these things? THE PLOT: Anyhow, the story gets straight to the action, with Seagal as Roland Sallinger, a cop with 25 years on the force, teamed up with an over-ambitious and greedy partner. After a drug bust, Sallingers partner is Keen to pocket the drug money. Sallinger a <more>
good cop hates this idea, and is promptly shot by his crooked partner who then phones it in a gang-shooting ....Only thing is, Sallinger is rushed to the hospital, wounded, but not dead. The crooked partner turns up at the hospital looking for Sallinger, who has a visit prior by a female colleague and lifts her gun from her handbag, in order to defend himself As the lady cop leaves the hospital, she realises her gun is gone, and races back to Sallingers ward. The crooked cop tries to suffocate Sallinger with a pillow, and is promptly shot with the gun Roland stole never take a pillow to a gunfight, i say! Much time passes, and we witness Sallinger banished from the police, due to injuries taking medication, lifting weights, throwing knifes we also get to see his many, many awards, medals and trophies, earned during the line of fire We also notice a picture of him and a wealthy Texan millionaire but more on that later..... As he mends his injuries, aided by his female colleague, the scene shifts to the glitzy night-life, of a wealthy young Paris-Hilton- like heiress named Nikita who's saddled with a playboy boxing womaniser NOT a football player, as the cover states who we know from the outset is rather crooked, as he flees the scene of an attempted kidnapping on the heiress. Sallinger is slowly getting better, when a surprise phone call, from his texan millionaire friend, asking him to fly over and help him with a problem. Feeling better, Roland agrees, and is met at the airport by a cop, who warns him from causing trouble, and reminding Sallinger that he's no longer a cop anymore. A mutual respect is brought about, and Sallinger and the cop, part ways. Driven to the Millionaires ranch,Roland also strikes up an off-beat friendship with the chauffeur, andis quick to help out en-route, defend the drivers sister against twogangster types. Sallinger kicks the s**t out of them, and finally meets up with his millionaire friend. He explains that his daughters life is in danger, and would Sallinger be her bodyguard? Roland agrees but senses that his friend is not giving him all the 'intel' required Sallinger has the security updated/modified/changed at the ranch, and puts his 'bone-breaking' skills to good use, on his first nights work as he defends the Heiress, against two heavies at a bar whilst Nikita's boyfriend is smooching with another girl in a back room. Nikita feels safe with her new bodyguard, and she regains her confidence again. But unbeknown to her, her cheating boyfriend has been 'leant-on' by her earlier would-be kidnappers, and plans to assist them in her kidnapping, next time they are out alone. Sallinger almost thwarts this kidnapping, but is arrested, after a crunching car-chase, and brutal shoot-out, leaving the kidnappers to get away with Nikita, and sending a ransom note to her wealthy father. I've gave away enough for you to guess that Sallinger, won't stop until he saves the girl, and kills the bad guys.......THE ACTING:Seagal is fine although some of his dialogue is quiet but i didn't notice any dubbing other than the opening scene....which was an overhead shot of a car He drops a few 'F-Bombs' from time to time, and is basically a soft-hearted bad ass throughout.The supporting cast are capable enough no big names but efficient enough, to keep ones interest. The Chauffeur gives the best secondary performance emoting a lot, just through his looks and gestures ACTION:Once again, i wasn't expecting UNDER SIEGE 2, but thankfully the movie had a fair few shoot-outs about 3 a few fights mostly a few quick moves but brutal enough, and well spaced out about 4 and a half decent car chase.VERDICT THE KEEPER was a good solid DTV movie. A lot better and easier to understand, than say KILLSWITCH or AGAINST THE DARK And coming after DRIVEN TO KILL, it's fine as a companion piece to both URBAN JUSTICE and PISTOL WHIPPED. Fans of non-stop action, might feel a little short-changed but luckily, this has a coherent plot to fall back on, and it's pace rarely sags But fans of Seagal himself, will enjoy this modest thriller especially if they enjoyed MAN ON FIRE?My rating 8 out of 10
I've been a Steven Seagal fan for a while. Actually I really like old style action movies and Steven is one of the best actors in this genre. So I was very happy when I realized that The Keeper is out. I had to get my hands on it asap. Of course now a days you'll have to be afraid of what you'll get when you'll watch a Steven Seagal movie. The quality has dropped from the old days. I think everyone knows that.Well I watched this new and long waited Seagal film. I'll keep this comment short but first let me base my opinion. I think that there are many kind of good movies <more>
and one type is a good action. And by action I mean action. When I want to watch an action film I want action. That's it! Nowadays there are lots of so called "action films" but many times the makers have concentrated too heavily on the blot.... And what is that. A good action movie needs to be very very entertaining and those complicated blots are some times in the way... I think. When I wan't to see a good action film it really doesn't need to have a good blot. All it needs is an actor with charisma and some kick ass action in it!So... The Keeper. To keep it short. Delivers this. Seagal really is like in the old days. A kick ass ex cop with a personal charisma to blow up walls. And that's it. The fighting scenes are made quite nicely and they are nice and brutal enough. There could be more of them tough.The Keeper brings us a movie that suits very well for people like me. People who enjoy watching action movies with bones crunching and people getting beaten up by Steven Seagal! I really enjoyed this movie.. so 9/10
Steven Seagal is back on track. Excellent movie with great action scenes (by sklose32)
From about 2002 to 2005 Seagal was really not very good at picking movies. Or maybe those he made were the only ones offered to him. Lately though, his pictures are getting better and better with each one. 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. <more>
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.For Seagal Fans this should be a no brainer and for fans of decent action flicks you might wanna try it.
Seagals best movie since the glimmer man (by jangchup)
Seagal is going back to basics in this movie sticking to what he knows. Beating up the bad guys. Really didn't know what to expect and was blown away by this latest movie. If he continue to make movies like this he will leave the stinkers behind. gave it 8 : 10 for making an effort to please his fans. Seagal needs to work harder with his movies and using what he knows to sell himself. He will never be a great actor but he could be the greatest action star. Hope he continues this trend. I hope they make an under siege 3, as this would be a suitable direction for seagal and pull in new fans <more>
and incorporate new ideas. His gangster rap movies are hopeless. Hope we don't have to watch those again.Henry
Steven Seagal has made several crappy movies in the past years, but with this movie, he makes his ultimate come back. All the fight scenes are done by himself and the story of the movie is better than a common Seagal movie.The acting work of every actor in this movie is pretty decent and sometimes even great! That's not what you would expect of a common Seagal film.If you liked the movies: Driven to Kill a.k.a. Ruslan , Urban Justice and Pistol Whipped, you should certainly give this movie a try.9 out of 10 stars.
