The storyline seemed very familiar, and the movie was a bit predictable.

"I represent an organization that deals with people like the man who raped your wife and we would very much like to take care of him for you." On her way home one night Laura (Jones) is violently attacked and raped. While visiting her in the hospital her husband Will (Cage) is approached by a stranger who has an offer for him. Will agrees but soon regrets his decision as it begins to take a serious toll on his and Laura's life. I don't think it comes as a surprise to anyone anymore that I am not a Nicholas Cage fan at all. I have liked a handful of the movies he has been in but not because of him. This is a movie I can add to that list. Cage is a little over the top in a few scenes, but overall this is a very entertaining movie that I really liked. I tend to like the vigilante type movies and this has that aspect to it. The cast is really good in this (Cage was...Cage) and it kept you guessing and entertained the whole time. Overall, for a non-Cage fan this is one that I would recommend. I liked it. I give it a B+.

Shot in New Orleans, SEEKING JUSTICE is an entertaining action-thriller that evokes memories of THREE DAYS OF THE CONDOR and other classic films of that conspiracy genre.

Nicolas Cage, in an unusually well moderated, low-key performance, plays a happily married high school teacher whose wife (January Jones) becomes the victim of a brutal rape. While waiting in the hospital, he is approached by a concerned stranger (Guy Pearce) who offers to get justice for his wife in exchange for a favor, sometime in the future. Distraught, Cage agrees to the vigilante course of action and, within hours, word comes that the rapist has "committed suicide".

Six months later, Jones has recovered from her physical injuries, yet is still on edge from her horrific experience, when Cage is summoned by Pearce to return the "favor" by killing an alleged child pornographer. And, if he doesn't do it, there will be dire consequences.

There are a few surprising plot twists in this fast-moving film, which is actually a lot better than I expected. True, there are moments where your believability quotient may be slightly strained, but with these kinds of movies, you either go along with them or you don't, and in the case of this Roger Donaldson-directed thriller, the tendency is to just enjoy the ride.

The DVD from Anchor Bay Entertainment contains a "Behind the Scenes" featurette.

You gotta hand it to Nick Cage...he constantly gets himself into movies that knock him down that he has to redeem himself for (or should I say Seek Justice for?). However, he actually does a fine job of finding a role every now and then that picks him right back up. The last really redeeming movie that Nick was in was certainly Kick-Ass. While Seeking Justice is no Kick-Ass, in my opinion Seeking Justice was a severely underrated movie that entertained me from start to finish.

And Nick has an excellent supporting cast of recognizable actors that help make Seeking Justice an above average hour and 45 minutes of well spent time. Nick plays a dude whose wife (played by Mad Men's January Jones) is assaulted by a thug. Guy Pierce runs an underground (is there another kind?) vigilante service and offers Nick some "free help" to settle the score. But of course nothing is really free, and Nick finds himself in hot water with the vigilante when the vigilante comes knocking for a return favor that Nick isn't very favorable to.

The storyline seemed very familiar, and the movie was a bit predictable. And in the last half hour of the movie, Nick's mild mannered character seems to develop a lot skills that someone like the character he plays would never have. But still, I found myself enjoying the movie enough to suggest that any fan of a good action thriller should put this in their queue for a viewing.

3 ½ stars. Check it out.

I'm a Nick Cage fan and have been disappointedly watching his films slide into "B" status for years. I sighed with relief while I watched Seeking Justice, as I found it quite a bit above a "B" movie. While it is unmemorable when measured against Con Air, Matchstick Men, Adaptation, City of Angels, The Family Man, and, of course, Moonstruck, it is highly watchable and has just enough thriller to justify its signified genre. Guy Pearce is a very nice bad guy and January Jones is adorable as the action heroine/damsel in distress. Seeking Justice has a decent script with a few twists, chase sequences, plot variations, and, for us Nicholas Cage fans, this one gets 4 stars just because it doesn't suck.

Will Gerard (Nicholas Cage) is a naïve English teacher at Rampart High in inner-city New Orleans. His beautiful wife Laura (January Jones), a musician at Mahalia Jackson Theatre, is brutally raped. At the hospital, Simon Adams (Guy Pearce) tells Will that he represents a vigilante justice group that promises to kill the rapist provided that he does them a favor. A stressed Will agrees and the rapist is shot dead. However, six months later, Will's life becomes a living nightmare when Simon demands that he push a child pornographer, Alan Marsh, from a bridge.

"Seeking Justice" asks the question: How far will you go to obtain justice when a loved one is violated?" There have been numerous films depicting the actions of a lone vigilante; they range from the classic "Death Wish" (Death Wish) to the more current release "The Brave One" (The Brave One [Blu-ray]). I enjoy vigilante films because our judicial system is designed to protect the criminal. Ask Sondra Lock's character, Jennifer Spencer, in "Sudden Impact" (Dirty Harry: Ultimate Collector's Edition (Dirty Harry / Magnum Force / The Enforcer / Sudden Impact / The Dead Pool) [Blu-ray]). However, Will Gerard becomes entangled in a vigilante group that tries to turn him into a murderer, which he is not. This theme was also explored in "Point of No Return" (
