4 Film Favorites: Steven Seagal (Above the Law, Fire Down Below, The Glimmer Man, Under Siege)
ABOVE THE LAW:
Steven Seagal's film debut features him as a Chicago cop battling corruption with martial arts when a dedicated Chicago police detective becomes drawn into an international drug-dealing conspiracy going back to his days as a special agent in Vietnam.
FIRE DOWN BELOW:
An EPA agent goes undercover in rural Kentucky to discover who is behind the dumping of lethal chemicals in an abandoned mine shaft. In the process, he becomes emotionally involved with the townspeople whose way of life is endangered by the toxic waste.
THE GLIMMER MAN:
Steven Seagal stars as a cop on the trail of a serial murderer in this psychological action-thriller.
Seagal is John Cole, a lieutenant specializing in serial murderers, who teams with a homicide detective (Keenen Ivory Wayans) to track an elusive killer named "The Family Man."
He's ex-Navy SEAL and highly decorated combat operative Casey Ryback (Seagal). Relying on his slam-bang martial-arts skills and equipped with enough hardware to single-handedly wage World War III, Ryback turns the Missouri's deck and below deck areas into guerilla combat zones. All hands ready, action fans!
It's not a job. It's an adventure!
Steven Seagal comes aboard and comes on strong, combining humor and heroics in a fireball of a movie. The excitement starts when the USS Missouri welcomes aboard musicians and caterers set to provide entertainment during the famed battleship's last voyage.
The visitors throw a party, all right. A war party.
Led by a rogue CIA operative (JFK's Tommy Lee Jones) and a turncoat officer (Lethal Weapon's Gary Busey), they're really killer-elite commandos out to hijack the ship's nuclear arsenal. They overpower the crew. Except for one man. "I'm just a cook," that man says. But he's a cook with a recipe for action.

Very disappointing and a waste of money
well there is only on the 2007 dvd release which is out of print now and very expensive to buy now
on the 2007 dvd each film has it's own Theatrical trailer plus production notes & chapter/scene selection
and optional English subtitles.
the 2018 dvd reissue which has the front sleeve artwork in white coloured not black
but has zero extras, no trailers, no chapter selection nothing
you just choose which film to watch on main menu and press play that's it, not worth the money at all
warner bros should've just reissued the films as 2 disc blu-ray set, not another dvd reissue as usual
pure Laziness by warner bros or they just didn't want to spend the cash
Above the Law and under siege are already on blu-ray anyway and can buy each for less than $15AUD
so 2.5 stars for the 2007 dvd version cause of the small extras given for each film
but 1 star for the 2018 dvd reissue only worth throwing in the trash
The Glimmer Man is possibly the best of the group, it has some nice action but also good interpersonal dynamics. The adversaries Segal faces in this are possibly the best portrayed of any of his films.
Under Siege is as high action as many Segal movies but doesn't manage to intertwine the personal dynamics as well as some movies however that's more than redeemed in Fire Down Below where community adversity comes to the fore in a movie that finds itself in environmental injustice and corruption in the legal system. The minister is particularly well played in this as is the beekeeper.
Above the Law is another play of government corruption which is a regular undercurrent in Segal movies. This time its focused around the CIA and rouge internal operations - it's a good movie if you want to think about who watches the watchers.
As a group they all are better than average movies from the standpoint of sets, storyline, acting and composition.
If you enjoy action movies or Segal in particular its very unlikely you will be disappointed.
At the price point it's hard to fault this set, delivered quickly and as ordered.
