His smash-'n'-bash screen debut! Steven Seagal shows he's an action hero to reckon with in Above the Law. He plays Nico Toscani, a tough-as-nails Chicago cop who, bounced from the force, dares to fight drug-runners and other lowlifes on their own lethal terms. Andrew Davis (The Fugitive) directs. Hard to Kill, the second film of Seagal's career, is hard to beat, a volatile tale of a gunned-down L.A. detective Mason Storm, who awakens from a coma determined to find his would-be killers. As Storm, Seagal unleashes a fury of revenge - and combines cutting down bad guys with cuttingly funny one-liners!

ABOVE THE LAW and HARD TO KILL were Seagal's first FILMS. Seagal wrote ABOVE THE LAW, in which he is a former C.I.A. operative, now a Chicago police officer, He plays Nico Toscani. (He is part Italian American) who is beset by old enemies from his CIA days and the action is brisk, violent and decisive. His wife in this movie, in a walk-on, off, pretty face here now, gone for the most part, role is Sharon Stone. Toscani battles with thugs, corrupt cops, CIA agents gone bad and protecting his wife and child. One of his best.
In HARD TO KILL, Seagal's second film he-Mason Storm, is a detective who has been shot several times and left to die, falling into a seven year coma. When he is revived there is hell to pay for those who set up the ambush to knock-off the man who is HARD TO KILL. Mason Storm (Seagal) awakens from a coma determined to find his would-be killers. Throughout the action, Seagal wisecracks with ironic, bitingly funny one-liners. Once his assailants know he is alive and well at a city hospital, they send a hit man to finish the job they botched years earlier. Kelly Lebrock, his nurse, helps rescue him from said hit man. Now free to get back into shape, Seagal sets his goals on outing the politician who set him up for assassination.
Steven Seagal's movies and DTV/DVD's have grossed over $850 million dollars worldwide. He has also created a few albums of his own music and is a hero of environmental and animal protectionists. As an action hero he has been the best draw over his so far 25 year career era. I gave the films a 4.5 star rating for this genre.
Segal has five homes scattered around the nation and a ranch in the Northwest, he cooks, writes songs serves many charitable organizations, mostly Progressive/Liberal causes, and turns out many DTV's/DVD's each year. The above were among his eight best films. In all he made about 37 movies. He is now making a cable reality show where he is, in fact, a deputy sheriff.
