"Remember the golden days of action movies? From 85 to 96, you could go to a theater and see the likes of Van Damme, Seagal, Stallone, and Schwarzenegger kick butt on screen and deliver some of the worst lines in the history or cinema? Ah. What a great time for movies. While Stallone is trying to relive his past with sequels, one is governing, and the last two are try to regain there glory years with horrible straight to dvd action movies. Ive made fun of Seagal many times in the past but I was quite surprised by these movies. His early films are really enjoyable, even if there are some moments of cheesy dialouge and acting. Both movies feature Seagal breaking a guy's wrist that looks very fake, that its funny. I highly recommend this to fans of action movies of the 80's and 90's. Too think I was going sell this set, im glad I didnt!"

"This was given as a gift but good concept to put two movies on one DVD. I collect movies and I'm running out of room."
Seagal's first 2

"ABOVE THE LAW and HARD TO KILL were Steven Seagal's first two movies. After being discovered by a Hollywood director teaching martial arts in California, Seagal wrote and starred the leading role in ABOVE THE LAW. He plays a cop in Chicago who used to be a C.I.A. operative. While making a routine bust he stumbles upon an elaborate, sinister plot that is driven by some old enemies he made while he was a "company" man.
HARD TO KILL details the story of a cop who is thought to have died after being gunned down by a bunch of hoodlums. In reality, he is in a coma for several years. He is lucky enough to have Kelly Lebrock (sigh) as his nurse.
The cop has a secret that he takes with him to his coma. When he comes out of it, he threatens the career and liberty of the politician who sent the hoodlums after him. He invokes acupuncture on his "get well soon" plan as he doesn't have time to be laid up!
Both of these films are quite good. The 3rd Seagal feature, MARKED FOR DEATH was a good action flick as well. After that, his movies were hit & miss (his most big-budget & best movie being UNDER SIEGE). Sadly, he mostly makes just "B" movies these days. In any case, these two films launched a successful career of one of the bigger action stars of the past 30 years."
