He's a cop with an attitude.
|Chicago cop Nico Toscani (Steven Seagal) is on to something big. Suspects collared in a drug raid are allowed to walk. And Nico himself is asked to turn in his badge. He may be off the force--but not out of the action. Seagal makes his sensational screen debut as Nico in Above The Law, smashing his way into the top ranks of action stars as he tracks ex-CIA operatives trafficking drugs...and plotting a political assassination. Director Andrew Davis (The Fugitive) unleashes the fury all over the Windy City as Nico and partner Jax (Pam Grier) close in on a psychotic crimelord (Henry Silva). This DVD Giftset features the DVD, Above The Law, and the book Golf: 101 Essential Tips!|
"...a one-man lethal weapon... Pat Collins, WWOR-TV
Editor's NoteProbably the best of Steven Seagal's three-word-titled action films from the 1990s was his debut, ABOVE THE LAW. Seagal plays Nico, a tough cop who pulls off the biggest drug bust of his career, only to have the FBI throw a wrench in it: why are they protecting one of the country's biggest drug lords, and what does it have to do with Nico's covert work in Vietnam? As his temper explodes all over Chicago, Nico's sixth-degree black belt in aikido proves helpful in his search for answers. Blaxploitation icon Pam Grier plays Nico's partner, Jax.
