Nightly Looking Glass
Methinks 'dm' is a bit retarded.

All those with IQs under 70: watch it. All the rest of you: go to sleep.

The Law
Apparently Steven Seagal was once above Jude Law.

Sex on legs
Steven Seagal is one sexy piece of A-S-S. XXX

There is a reason Steven Seagal was the defining actor of his generation and this is it. This epic is as good now as it was when it came out. This big budget action thriller will have you on the edge of your seat, if not on the floor, dripping with anticipation of what 'nico' will do next. It also stars sharon stone who is sweltering hot from the moment she graces the screen to the moment 'nico' gives her a peeko. what a movie.

A cult classic that has changed cinema forever.
What Steven Seagal's debut has done for the entire high-octane action film genre is like what the Geneva Convention has done for human rights. Steven Seagal has single-handedly brought undiscriminating ass-kicking to the masses. If you gave this film a bad review, sleep with one eye open, because Steven Seagal is already on his way to your house...

better than "half past dead?"
Although half past dead has more explosions, I would argue that Seagals masterpiece is undoubtedly "above the law". Muchos action, and a soundtrack that carries you through the dizzying highs and terrible lows does not disappoint. xxx

just brilliant
if you appreciate a complex plot and enjoyed half past dead as i did, you will love this. It is not the greatest film, but it is definitely up there with shawshank redemption and gladiator, hence my score of 9.8. A groundbreaking step in modern film.

I have this film on my ipod so I can watch the bit where he caves his sisters drug dealing boyfriends face in with his Italian stallion pimping shoes on over and over. I agree with Bruce Lee...see review below...why no academy awards?

Why did it not win any Oscars?
Best script, best dialogue, best screenplay, best acting, best special effects of all time. My one criticism is that I felt Steven Seagal didn't kill enough people for my liking.
