Above the Law

One thing that I don't like about this book:  This book does not contain lesser known movies that are straight to dvd.  Where is Abominable?  Abominable, by the way, is the movie Rear Window with a sasquatch.  So there are some flaws.  Maybe in 2029, when I finish this book, it will be updated with REAL movies.  So anyway, we now have to pass on Above and Beyond and Above Suspicion because Netflix shockingly doesn't have them.

Above the Law-1988, starring Steven Seagal, Pam Grier, and Sharon Stone

He says-  Chicago cop doesn't hesitate to use his martial arts skills as he battles police corruption and drug dealing.  Seagal's film debut reveals the real -life Aikido master to be more of the Chucknorrisian than of the Stanislavskian school of acting.  Seagal also cowrote and coproduced; slick but stupid actioner.  2 stars.

I say- I loathe this movie.  Not for the fact that the movie is bad, which it is, and not for the lack of a plot, which there is none, but because it simply had introduced the world to Steven Seagal.   Steven Seagal is a fantastic actor with all of the range of a piece of wood.  He has won and been nominated for many acting awards, all in the Razzies.  He's not even likable, and I don't understand how in this movie he has a love interest.  The action sucks, and he thinks he's Asian and Native American, which to my knowledge, he is neither.  The only good thing he has done was introduce the Lightning energy drink.  1 star.
