When Lukich passes Jacks on the stairs during the saving the priest scene and Jacks gets shot with 12-gage, you can see the holes in the shirt before she falls down the stairs. Briefly right after she starts to fall, you can see the shirt no longer has the holes from the gunshot. See more »
Although the UK cinema version was passed uncut, video versions were cut by 15 secs by the BBFC to edit shots of a man's nose being punched from a bar fight, drug use and an arm break during the final fight scene. The DVD features the same cut print. The uncut version was released on Blu-ray in the UK in 2009, but had not been officially classified by the BBFC, and was thus pulled from sale. See more »
back in 1988,a new action hero emerged on the scene.exploded is a more apt description i guess.that action hero was named Steven Seagal.he makes quite an impression in his first film,exposing the masses to a little known fighting style known as Aikido.Seagal shows some acting promise as well,in this film,and even in a few more subsequent films.one thing is certain he captured the public's interest,in a big way,for awhile at least.as for this film,it has all the ingredients that are necessary for a good action film.is it his best film to date?i don't think so,but it does rate fairly high among his films nevertheless.for me,Above the Law is a 7/10
