Above the Law Reviews

October 9, 2016
Above the Law has enough off-beat updates on the cops-and-robbers theme to at least make the film visually interesting most of the time.

...the overstuffed narrative contributes heavily to the movie's eventual downfall...
April 9, 2015
A jejune actioner that has pretensions of making a political statement about such things as drugs, smuggling and illegals.
April 29, 2009
...old-fashioned, nonstop violence from beginning to end, with subtlety out the window.

An artifact from way back when Steven Seagal was novel and therefore sort of cool.

above-average, and much better than Seagal's later efforts

Woefully short on originality, intelligibility and anything resembling taste.

It might be arguable whether it is the best Seagal film or not, but Nico still has all important Seagal trademarks.
January 1, 2000
It contains 50 percent more plot than it needs, but that allows it room to grow in areas not ordinarily covered in action thrillers.
