    Above the Law

    ★★★★

    Seagal is thin, angry, brutal and at the top of his game. Seagal’s Nico was a Sicilian born mafia hood, a teen aged side burned Aikido master living in Japan, a Tokyo embassy party goer, a medical doctor proficient in modern and traditional medicine, a CIA agent, an incorruptable super soldier, a Catholic father and husband, probably an Olympic sprinter and one hell of a chivalrous cop.

Fans of the Polonia brothers will really dig it.

Fun flick.
