Info about "Above The Law – 1988 trailer video"
Above the Law (also known as Nico: Above The Law, or simply Nico) is a 1988 action film directed by Andrew Davis, probably best-known for being the film debut of Steven Seagal.
Nico Toscani (Steven Seagal) is a cop in Chicago Police Department’s vice squad. Born in Italy, he and his family immigrated to Chicago when he was seven. Early on, he developed an interest in martial arts, and soon he moved to Japan to study from the masters. In 1969, he was recruited into the CIA, and after a brief tour in Vietnam, he returned to Chicago to assume his current role.
Nico and his partner Jacks (Grier) are now investigating a drug ring, and after busting two of the dealers, he discovers plastic explosives. Shortly afterward, in a twist of events, everyone Nico arrested is suddenly let go, and Nico is asked to stand down, not to mention the fact that the priest of Nico’s parish is killed in an explosion as a Mass is ending.
Then, soon enough, Nico has police searching his house and is asked to turn in his badge. Nico eventually finds out the dealers he busted are linked to a corrupt CIA agent named Kurt Zagon (Silva), who tried to fund an invasion of Nicaragua, and was under heat from Congress to reveal his undercover operations.
When he finds out the priest’s death was of Zagon’s making, and with one particular senator who is trying to bring him down as his next target, Nico seeks to bring down Zagon and all involved with him at any cost. Nico eventually kills Zagon when he breaks his neck.
