Wonderfilm’s CEO, Kirk Shaw: “Beyond the Law is the fourth North American Wonderfilm theatrical release of 2019. It's a big milestone for us, but next year we expect to double the number of movies released in theaters. Professionally, Beyond the Law was exciting since we were finally able to reunite Steven Seagal with DMX in a great action thriller. Fans have long been waiting for the return of the Exit Wounds on-screen action and chemistry. With a nod to the earlier movie’s success, DMX, Messner and Seagal aimed to give fans absolute action. The Director James Cullen Bressack deserves a lot credit, working tirelessly with the actors to create a vision for a dark world, offering a new take on the fighting style Seagal fans enjoy.”
