AT THE HEADQUARTERS OF THE SIU (Special Investigative Unit) in Seattle, Washington, an elite undercover squad of cops led by Elijah Kane (the wonderful Steven Seagal) plans to bring an influx of violent and ruthless heroin dealers and suppliers to justice.

They arrest and question Thomas (Ben Cotton), who is known to Kane and who appears to have some connections with the narcotics gang, which is believed to have been responsible for the slaughter of a Chinese storekeeper and his wife.

But their young daughter has escaped the killers by hiding and she can identify one of them as a police officer. Kane follows the trail and from a gang living at the former immigrant Camp Harmony on the outskirts of the city he is led to Crystal (Sarah Jane Redmond), the manager of a lap-dancing club, and on to the wealthy, cold-blooded Russian drugs baron Nikoli (Gil Bellows).

Kane, supported by his equally-determined crack team of law enforcers, will use any means necessary to clean up the streets of Seattle — even if it means putting his own neck on the line.

The team is pitted against drug dealers and suppliers who are even more ruthless than the tough Kane and a massacre of the dealers proves the extremes that the suppliers will go to in order to keep their lucrative business operating. If Kane is to root out the drug barons, it can only end in one way; with a no-holds-barred shootout that will result in a bloodbath as the body count rises.

Another perfect vehicle for the likeable Steven Seagal, Deadly Crossing keeps violence to a minimum and benefits from a hard-working, effective and talented cast.
