Above The Law

Formulaic action dross, below the norm. The fact that CIA drug dealers are the villains this time theoretically adds a certain tang to the proceedings, but in practice this slugfest of Dirty Harry tactics is very much the mixture as before. Real-life martial arts master and international security specialist Steven Seagal plays the lead, coproduced, and collaborated on the story with director Andrew Davis; Pam Grier is on hand as his loyal sidekick, Sharon Stone is his wife, and Daniel Faraldo and Henry Silva are among the villains. Filmed on location in Chicago, with the usual amount of property damage. (JR)
