Above the Law

This was Steven Seagals first film and it made him a big name in Hollywood action films. Seagal plays an ex CIA operative who split scene to become a good old fashion regular cop and do his best to make the world a better place. During his time, a guy in the CIA named Zagon was responsible for some pretty inhumane treatment toward his prisoners. Well, naturally, hes back stirring up shit and and of course, Nico, Stevens character, is mixed up in it as a good guy trying to stop crime. This film is like many of Seagals and is more of generalized 80s Hollywood action films-quick fights, chases and gunfights are the way it all goes down, with the only difference being the use of Aikido in Seagals ' hand to-hand fight scenes. We get a nice little intro to Nicos Aikido's background early on with him watching Morihei Ueshiba, founder of Aikido, and being inspired to start practising-story which mirrors Seagals quite closely. Youll see some really nice Aikido in this film with a finale that shows Seagal ending his enemies ' lives quite sharply and brutally-its pretty nice action for a Seagal movie! Overall, one of few and very best of his films, check it out!

10 HALF PAST DEAD (2002)

In Half Past Dead, Steven Seagal plays a man who was arrested and imprisoned because guy he was with started shooting at FBI agents. He is then sent to super jail on Alcatraz and then ends up fighting for his life when the jail is attacked by some guys looking for their gold. This was actually a theatrical release and stood up there with movie like Rock, but fell bit short of that film's brilliance. With that say, there are a lot of Seagal fight scenes. Albeit in the storyline that is cheesy and a bit silly. For theatrical movie, it also isn't that slick-looking, which is probably why Seagal go exclusively to DTV after this.

9 EXIT WOUNDS (2001)

In Exit Wounds, Steven Seagal is a cop who doesn't just bend rules to stop bad guys, he shatters them and then finds new ones to break just for fun. He doesn't just go around busting up bad guys, but he also has reason not to trust his fellow police officers. When he learns there is a giant conspiracy behind the assassination attempt, he partners up with gangster to solve the mystery, take out bad guys, and save the day. The rest of the cast is pretty good too, with Anthony Anderson, Michael Jai White, Bill Duke, Tom Arnold, Bruce McGill, and Eva Mendes.

8 ON DEADLY GROUND (1994)

On Deadly Ground was a strange movie for Steven Seagal at the time. A man is normally a former or current cop who sets out to kick anyone's butt who gets in his way-and that is when he isn't killing every bad guy who looks at him wrong. In this movie, he is more concerned with the environment and protecting the Earth. When he speaks up about the damage the corporation he works for has done to Earth, they frame him for a crime he didn't commit. This also happens to be one of the movies that Seagal directed himself. The message is heavy-hand, but there is a great cast as well as some solid fight scenes.

7 URBAN JUSTICE (2007)

When it comes to Steven Seagal movies, Urban JUSTICE might be the best looking and most impressive of his direct-to-video releases. In the movie, he plays a father who is investigating the murder of his son, who was a police officer. He then set OUT and started to tear through LA gangs in the neighborhood where it happen. However, once he learned that gang members were not responsible, he set his eyes on police officers who might be covering up the truth. Eddie Griffin co-starred and was good, but the action in this movie is all worthy of his big-screen efforts, with car chases, shootouts and Seagal's trademark fight scenes.
