“Above the Law”
Netflix also has an impressive collection of older hits for those who may have missed them the first time around or would like the opportunity to enjoy viewing them once more. “Above the Law” a great action flick from the late '80s. It features a young Steven Seagal, less of the tire around the waist and minus the double chin.

“Love and Other Drugs”
