Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Steven Seagal has always been an awkward action hero. Initially, he had a certain amount of credibility thanks to his nebulous association with secret government agencies and mastery of aikido, which helped to excuse his bad acting. But as a self-righteous action hero in the vein of Schwarzenegger and Stallone (which helps to explain his bad acting), Seagal fell into unintentional self-parody faster and more dramatically than either of his two predecessors. In Out for Justice, Seagal plays Gino Felino, a Brooklyn-born cop known and respected by everyone--both good and bad--in his neighborhood. The worst of the neighborhood baddies is Richie Madano (William Forsythe), a crack-smoking killer who murders his partner and terrorizes the neighborhood. Technically, Felino is a terrible cop--touching evidence at murder scenes, stealing evidence, intimidating witnesses--but only by breaking those rules can he bring in this horrible criminal. As his soon-to-be-ex-wife discovers, he does everything because he cares too much. Julianna Margulies (ER) has a small but thankless role as Richie's hooker girlfriend, and Gina Gershon (Face/Off, Bound) has an equally thankless role as Richie's foul-mouthed, bar-owning sister. The movie plays like a vanity piece for Seagal, and in that vein, it is fascinating to watch. --Andy Spletzer

Product Description

4.0 out of 5 stars "Anybody seen Richie? Anyone know why he did Bobby Lupo?" September 18, 2004
By B-MAN
Format:DVD
Director John Flynn followed up Stallone's "Lock Up" with "Out for Justice", Steven Seagal's 4th film. This is another in a succession of guilty pleasure ass kicking films that Seagal started with his debut, '88's Above the Law. You either appreciate this kind of movie or you don't. Anyone expecting Eastwood acting out of Seagal at this point, hasn't been watching his movies. Now, if you know what you're in for: A real psycho is on the loose and Seagal goes after him, kicking the crap out of anyone in his way, then you won't be disappointed. I consider this to be one of Seagal's most entertaining. Plenty of wonderful violence abound, not to mention plenty of outrageously articulated fight scenes (in butcher shops & pool halls!)where Seagal gains little more than a scratch, if that. The plot! - Seagal is cop (surprise!) Gino Felino who "investigates" (aka violently kicks the butts of) all the slime balls who may know the where abouts of Richie Madano (William Forsythe looking fat and sloppy), the fat crack head who killed his childhood friend. Bottom line: Richie is out of control and on that stuff, going around shooting people willy nilly so Seagal sets out to stop him. Does he? What do you think, cool breeze? You'll love that classic intro where Seagal throws a violent pimp through a windshield. What a way to display the film title huh? Besides, any movie where Seagal confronts an animal abuser, kicks him between the legs, then lets his dog pee on him, can't be that bad right?!

*Look for Jerry Orbach, Gina Gershon, Julianna Margulies, Shannon Whirry, & John Leguizamo in small roles.

Also recommended with Seagal:

Above the Law

Under Siege

and for some real fun...

On Deadly Ground

Fire Down Below

Ticker

(these three are priceless in humor alone!)

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the perfect Steven Seagal movie....... March 3, 2005
By Ollie
Format:DVD
With this entry Steven Seagal and director John Flynn delivered one of the most enjoyable action thrillers from the past 15 years. Out For Justice also show cases one of the best martial arts bar room brawl fight scenes ever put to film. Seagal in his day was hugely popular simply because his movies were violent and he was enjoyable to watch as he snapped arms, legs and anything else that came his way. Under Siege, one year later was Seagals biggest box office success however Out For Justice beats it hands down for extreme Seagal action. Seagal really seems to enjoy himself in these earlier movies like this one, Above The Law, Hard To Kill and Marked For Death but after Under Siege his new found world popularity seemed to go to his head and he was never again able to deliver a movie as solid as anything he made prior to Under Siege. In this one he is the hard as nails Steven Seagal that made him an action star in the first place. His martial arts capabilities are on full display in this movie with excellent and numerous aikido scenes against multiple opponents. William Forsythe plays Seagals adversary Richie Madano as a crazy, annoying wannabe gangster and you get right behind Seagal as he anilities Richie and his gang at the end. This is a full on over the top violent adult thriller that does not hold back any punches in its depiction of violent scenes. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys violent action thrillers and a must own for any Steven Seagal fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Justice in 90 minutes or your Pizza's free July 28, 2007
Format:HD DVD|Verified Purchase
Gino Felino, like Nico Toscani, Mason Storm and John Hatcher before him, is a good cop in a bad mood. His partner Bobby Lupo has been gunned down in the streets in front of his wife and kids by crazed wannabe gangster Richie Madano. Richie was always into something bad, even when he was a kid and now seems to be going psycho, snorting coke and smoking crack. He's got a one-way ticket to oblivion and he's going to have fun getting there along with his evil henchmen Joey Dogs, Bobby Arms and Bochi. Luckily for the good citizens of Brooklyn, Gino is on the case and on the mission to find Richie by means of broken bones, severed limbs and agonizing pain.

As Steven Seagal movies go (the pre-1997 Golden Years) Out For Justice is definitely one of the strongest. Tight fast-paced direction, well balanced widescreen framing, a great score by David Michael Frank and an impressive cast of familiar faces give it a lasting impression. Also, Seagal has mentioned that this is his favorite film of his own and you can really see it in his acting. He's often been criticised for not giving any effort and I wholeheartedly agree in regard to his later films. But there was a time when he did try and in Out For Justice you can see that a little effort goes a long way. I know his Brooklyn accent isn't THAT convincing and his acting in general isn't exactly on par with Olivier, but if he we're to be just as enthusiastic about his other characters then maybe his film career wouldn't be in the toilet.

Out For Justice never loses its appeal. William Forsythe is just so evil as Richie that I've never been convinced by the nice guy characters he's played in other movies.

Format:DVD
This is a hard movie to describe, but an easy one to either love or hate.

WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?:

This is a sort of continuation of the "Death Wish" and "Dirty Harry" movie franchises with a touch of Bruce Lee-esque action/values/motives making Steven Seagal as "Gino Felino" a new icon from the same mold as earlier star-driven franchises.

Felino plays an honorable, though troubled, man living in a corrupt and decadent world. When his partner and best friend is gunned down in the street in front of his family, Gino simply takes over the investigation and sets out to mete out justice, hence the title.

ITS ALL IN THE EXECUTION!:

Put aside logic before you tune into "Out For Justice". This is strictly a Steven Seagal fun-fest vehicle for his fans and for fans of the genre in general. This is supremely-captivating entertainment that will make you either cheer or wrench, but you'll have to see it to know for sure.

Richie Madano (played by William Forsythe} is a perfectly-contemptible nemesis for Seagal. He proves all too well the old adage that a hero is nothing without a worthy and despicable adversary. After the continuation of Madano's crack-crazed "my last night, my big night" blather, we grow to yearn for Gino to catch up to him and his crew and make his wish come true.

In between, we have Madano killing random by-standers and Gino chasing after him and his crew, donning his beret and toting his 12-gauge pump as they tear up Brooklyn [near the Battery Tunnel, from what I can see]. Seagal shows a lot of imagination as he expertly uses anything from a cue ball to a wedge of cheese in self-defense as he marches on his quest, "Out For Justice".
