A decorated homicide detective faces off against a perverse serial killer against the backdrop of the depraved Memphis underworld in this action thriller starring Steven Seagal. Detective Jacob Stillwell (Seagal)'s reputation for exacting street justice has made him something of an icon among his colleagues in law enforcement, but with a cunning psychopath named Lazarus roaming the streets Stillwell can't lie back on his laurels.

    The Dark Side of Dixie

    KILL SWITCH Written by Steven Seagal Directed by Jeff King Soundtrack composed by John Sereda Rated: R Starring: Steven Seagal Chris Thomas King Holly Dignard Karyn Michelle Baltzer Distributed by First Look Studios In childhood, Jacob Stillwell (Steven Seagal) witnesses the murder of his twin brother, Daniel. Traumatized by the event, it never stops haunting him. As a result, he devotes his life to tracking down serial killers. Renowned for having solved more cases than anyone has in U.S. history, he becomes one of the most recognized and respected investigators in his field. He tracks a vicious and sadistic killer named Vasquez to Memphis. Vasquez brutalizes and tortures victims for the thrill of being chased by authorities. Stillwell and his police partner, Storm Anderson (Chris Thomas King) are on the crime scene when Stillwell discovers the killer is watching them from the window of an apartment across the street. He confronts Vasquez, fights with him, knocks him from the high window and eventually arrests him, but Vasquez is released from jail on a technicality. The chase is on again with the killer tormenting Stillwell about his troubling memories. Stillwell battles both the killer and his inner demons in this film. Fans of Steven Seagal expect great fight scenes and they will not be disappointed in Kill Switch. The fights are lengthy and brutal. There are street fights, shootouts and a car explosion. Seagal is back in shape and handles himself well. Kill Switch is listed as an action film but it is psychological horror at its best -- dark, suspenseful, with gothic overtones and brutal violence. Seagal&#8217 s writing skills are clearly apparent in this composition. John Sereda's music is perfectly suited to the mood. Production values are high and the film could have worked well on the big screen. Issac Hayes plays the coroner, and even in this small role, adds much to the film. The cast overall turned in valid performances with those of Steven Seagal and Chris Thomas King nothing short of suburb. They worked well together. In one of the film&#8217 s lighter moments, Chris Thomas King shines through, really stealing the scene, and viewers get a glimpse of his versatile and remarkable talent. This is somewhat of a departure from Seagal&#8217 s past movies, focusing more on plot and acting. Viewers see a different side of this martial artist, more humane and caring, but still capable of swift and deadly justice. Kill Switch is one of Steven&#8217 s Seagal&#8217 s best films to date and firmly established Chris Thomas King as an important dramatic actor.
