An average movie

“To be honest, I have never been a huge fan of Steven Seagal but I was still intrigued by this movie since it was Seagal’s acting debut and since it was directed by Andrew Davis who had delivered some solid action flicks during his career. Well, it turned out to be seriously weak after all, in fact, even though it was barely 21:00 when I watched the damned thing, I still struggled to not fall asleep. Back then, following the release of this movie, Seagal was hailed as the next big action movie star but, to be honest, the guy was and still is such a weak actor. At least, he was a real Aikido master so the fight scenes were pretty good and Pam Grier was actually not bad at all as she was a different and interesting partner but that was pretty much the only positive things I could find regar” read more

I'm probably not watching much this time. (70 movies items)

"09/02/18 Directed by: Andrew Davis On one hand, its amazing how sudden and visceral Seagal's fight scenes are but on the other hand they're also over extremely fast. "

"30.7. (Netflix) Steven Seagal vetää jengiä turpaan. Henry Silva piikittää ihmisiä neuloilla ja hänen roikkuvat poskensa ovat ainoita asioita, jotka tästä jäivät pidemmäksi aikaa mieleen."

"12.2.2018, rewatch, Netflix Seagal näyttelee ensimmäisessä elokuvassaan oikeamielistä, mutta kovaotteista poliisia joka jahtaa korruptoineita CIA-agentteja ja kyttiä. Above the Law ei ole ihan Seagalin uran alkupään parhaimpia elokuvia, mutta elokuva tarjoaa ihan hyvää toimintaviihdettä. "

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- April 2017 (33 movies items)

" HBO Now- 1hr. 39min. First Viewing It's a Steven Seagal movie; that's really the plot. This is his first one, though you really couldn't tell; there's not much range in the man's acting (though at least he was awake, something that couldn't be said about his straight-to-DVD classics). But who cares about the action, amiright? It's the action, that's what we're here for. To that point, the action is fine, though not great. This is a movie best viewed as a cheesy niche flick; your enjoyment will "

"16.4. Steven Seagal huomaa epäkohtia paikallisessa huumekaupassa, joten hänen on aivan pakko päästä tappamaan Henry Silvaa ihan pikkaisen. Pam Grier hokee koko elokuvan ajan, että tämä on hänen viimeinen viikkonsa poliisihommissa. Hän saa elokuvassa yllättäen haulikosta. Kaavasta poiketen hän kuitenkin jää loppujen lopuksi henkiin."
