There's a sense, in most cop-vs.-psycho movies, of the antagonists as opposite sides of a bloody coin. That's what happens in the new Steven Seagal action-thriller "Out for Justice" (citywide). In most ways, it's the usual rough-and-ugly, slam-bang, blood-soaked cop-vs.-psycho vendetta saga, begining with a pimp hurled through a car window and ending with a dog relieving himself on a knocked-out bully.

Jason Patric and Ray Liotta do a whole lot of shouting in the new film "Narc," but I wonder if the two actors ever sat down together and quietly went over the script.

Nasso, buried the hatchet Sunday, ending a bitter court battle that had spawned allegations of contract breach and Mafia extortion. As a result of the confidential, out-of-court settlement, Nasso is expected to drop his $60-million lawsuit against Seagal, which alleged that the actor reneged on an agreement to produce four films with him.

The origin of the title code name for Steven Seagal's Jack Cole in "The Glimmer Man" refers to his stealth as a CIA agent in the jungles of Who Knows Where. His victims, we're told, were lucky to get a glimmer of him before he was on top of them, doing Who Knows What. Actually, glimmer, which means to emit a dim or intermittent light, is a more appropriate word for describing Seagal's performance than his character's cunning.

With "On Deadly Ground" (general release), Steven Seagal not only makes his directorial debut but also risks combining action with a message, a deadly serious, intelligent protest against the threat to the environment posed by the oil industry. He also does some consciousness-raising in regard to the rights of Native Americans and the spiritual values their Inuit culture has to offer all of us. Although you could certainly wish that Seagal and his writers, Ed Horowitz and Robin U.
