Overview
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.

Steven 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). Seagal is "a one-man lethal weapon" (Pat Collins, WWOR-TV).
