Chicago DEA agent John Hatcher has just returned from Colombia, where his partner was killed in the line of duty by a drug dealer who has since been taken down. As a result of his partner's death, John has decided to retire, but his retirement may not be permanent. On the next day, after reuniting with his sister Melissa and Melissa's daughter Tracy, John gets into a shootout against a Jamaican drug kingpin known as Screwface, taking down some of Screwface's men. John brings himself out of retirement when Screwface retaliates by attempting to kill Melissa and Tracy. After the shooting, John is reunited with two old friends - a local high school football coach named Max, and a Jamaican Chicago cop named Charles. John and Max set out to hunt Screwface down, only to discover that Screwface has gone back to Jamaica. John and Max take Charles with them to Jamaica for an all out war against Screwface and his drug empire. Written by

When the Jamaican, "Monkey," leaps out the hotel window, he lands on the roof of a blue, four door '60 Pontiac Bonneville, crushing the roof. Two scenes later (when Seagal and David are chasing the Jamaicans in a BMW through the streets in their Ramcharger), the very same Pontiac (with roof intact), skids through an intersection between the two vehicles in this chase.

This is one tough movie that shows star Steven Seagal at his arrogant,strutting,confident and brutal best.The movie itself follows the example set by its leading man.The story of Seagal's battle against the patois spouting Jamaican bad guys led by the sinister Screwface is compellingly told with many "in your face" action sequences littered throughout,not the least of which are several bone crunchingly covincing Aikido fights which are tougher and more prolonged than is usual with Seagal.When I first saw Seagal onscreen in "ABOVE THE LAW" I remember commenting that I thought he was the most charismatic individual to hit the screen in many years.His piling on of the pounds in recent years plus his somewhat inflated and frankly ludicrous self image have diminished his presence and box office impact recently but he remains compelling to watch and one hopes that he still has one or two more action-filled surprises up his sleeve in the future before he(perhaps inevitably)goes the route of Chuck Norris...."WALKER,BUDDHIST DEITY" anyone?
