"Something's not right." Signature Entertainment has debuted a new UK trailer for the Belgian crime film Above the Law, originally titled Tueurs in French (which translates to Killers).

This lean, slick, fast-paced action film is based on a true story from 1982. The twisted crime thriller involves a gangster pulling one last job, who witnesses an investigator get killed by a group of masked commandos. He works to free himself and figure out what's really going on, which leads to them discovery a conspiracy that goes all the way up to the top politicians in Belgium. Starring Olivier Gourmet as Frank, with Lubna Azabal, Kevin Janssens, Bouli Lanners, Natacha Régnier, Johan Leysen, Gilles De Schryver, and Stéphanie Crayencour. There is still no US release planned for this yet, but hopefully soon enough.
Full UK trailer (+ poster) for Jean-François Hensgens & François Troukens' Above the Law, on YouTube:
Gangsters clash with police corruption in this lean crime caper based on the shocking true story of the unsolved mass murders of Brabant, which occurred in Belgium in 1982. When Frank Valken (Olivier Gourmet) carries out a final, daring robbery, a commando force step in and kills an examining magistrate investigating an important political case. Thanks to rigged evidence, he is arrested and wrongly charged for the murder. In the face of intense media pressure, Frank has no choice but to escape and attempt to prove his innocence. Above the Law, originally titled Tueurs in French, is directed by filmmakers Jean-François Hensgens (an experienced cinematographer) & François Troukens, both making their feature directorial debut. The screenplay is written by Giordano Gederlini & François Troukens, from a story by François Troukens. This initially premiered at the Venice Film Festival in 2017. The film already opened in France and Belgium in late 2017. Signature will open Above the Law in UK cinemas this spring. Interested?
Pretty good. The action looks ok-good.

Good old European crime mystery combined with political intrigue. I miss it sometimes so this is on my list ...

This looks really good to me, but they blew it with the new title. Killers would have been much, much better than Above the Law which sounds like some stupid Steven Segal movie...which this does not look like that horrible stuff in the least. Is that his name...Steve..? Steven Segal? Whatever. Horrible fraud of an actor and a very strange guy. This looks top notch and intelligent and very well done. Hope it comes around to be seen.
