Editorial Reviews

Steven Seagal (Attack Force, Flight of Fury) and Eddie Griffin (Deuce Bigalow, Norbit) star this no holds barred action, crime-thriller about a man with a dark and violent past who is out for revenge against the murderer of his son. Max Ballester is a street cop working in the heart of the poverty stricken city who made the mistake of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Gunned down in the street in a senseless act of violence his murder goes unsolved and the killer unidentified. When Simon Ballester (Seagal), a former government specials ops agent, learns of his son's murder, he soon moves into the very neighborhood where Max was killed in order to spend his days asking questions and cracking heads as he searches for the killer of his son. He quickly makes enemies with the local gang members and soon finds himself a target of their hostility. Simon's ability with weapons and his flawless fighting skills prove useful as he uncovers a tangled web of deceit and murder.

While Urban Justice is not without it's problems, the most obvious being the embarrassing DVD cover art, this is the first Steven Seagal film since Exit Wounds to actually remind me that at one point in the action movie world, Seagal was one of the action kings. It's a low budget DTV and as such it suffers. Most notably the script with some dreadful dialogue scenes also interior locations looking like the cheaply dressed sets they are and second rate actors filling out the cast. Concentrating on Seagal, he delivers in the action department. His fight scenes are all Seagal, no body doubles in this one. Arm's and necks are broken, opponents are thrown across rooms and into objects, Seagal is fast without speeded up camera tricks making him all the more believable. I can't remember the last time I saw Seagal lift his leg above knee height, in Urban Justice he kicks several opponents and actually kicks one opponent in the face. I also did not see the large gut so prominent in past DTV's. As for Seagal's acting, as anyone will know, he will never win Oscar but he can deliver a believable performance as much as is expected in a martial arts action movie when he feels like it. In Urban Justice, I did not get anything except Seagal playing Steven Seagal for the first 50 minutes or so but in the last half hour he seemed to make an attempt at giving some kind of dramatic performance and I did begin to believe that his character had lost a son and he was hell bent on revenge.Read more ›

Like most of you reading this review, I am a dedicated Seagal fan who has watched every one of those heinously awful direct-to-DVD things he's been making for the last five years, desperately hoping the newest movie would finally be THE ONE to usher in an entirely new Seagal era. I have loyally watched each film, disappointed to new lows every single time, sighing with disbelief yet also wanting to believe: "One day he'll finally make a great movie again."

Granted, Urban Justice in not a great movie, and I hesitate to call it even a good movie, but compared with those bewildering grade Z letdowns of the last five years where the entire movie should have been left on the cutting room floor, Urban Justice is practically Oscar material.

For one thing, Seagal is actually acting in this one. You can see he's actually TRYING, for a change, to make a movie, instead of standing around like a cardboard cutout. You can actually discern some of his personality instead of those flatline performances he's been giving, especially in the first fight scene where he starts to back away from his attackers while saying, "I'm getting scared...I'm getting scarrrred..." It's actually funny, and THEN - we finally see the first real Seagal fight in five years. It's brief, but it's good - and whoever thought we'd see him kick his foot higher than his head again? That's right, and it's no stunt double or trick of the camera. I was so shocked at this simple return to athleticism I had to put the movie in my DVD ROM and study it, frame by frame, just to make sure I wasn't being fooled. Steven Seagal is back in action.

Seagal's recent direct-to-DVD movies have all been more or less bad. At best they have been watchable. When Mercenary for Justice came out, I thought it couldn't get any worse and then he proved me wrong by doing Attack Force. Many of the movies have suffered from incoherent scripts, bad dubbing (Seagal's character changing voices from one scene to the next) and lack of fighting scenes. I'm glad to say "Urban Justice" (aka "Renegade Justice") departs from this trend. The story is pretty straightforward and there are several scenes where Seagal gives the bad guys what they deserve. The movie is not without flaws (such as a couple of annoying supporting characters and cheesy flashback sequences, and the script could have used some tweaking) but it is definitely a step in the right direction for Seagal. I think most of his remaining fans will enjoy "Urban Justice" and those who gave up on him after "Attack Force" may want to consider giving this movie a chance.

Yes, Seagal fans, it's true: our hero has finally released a DTV movie to silence his critics and re-affirm his reputation as a genuine butt-kicker. Gone are the convoluted storylines, the lackluster action, the production snafus, and the overall dreariness of most of his previous DTV ventures. By some miracle, "Urban Justice" is not only well-produced technically but also packs a tight storyline and probably the best supporting cast that Seagal has worked with in years. In a word, the film is compact, with no loose ends, no un-needed characters, and no useless subplots to slow down a straight-forward, action-based storyline.

The story: when his son is gunned down by an unknown assassin, Simon Ballister (Seagal) doesn't settle for the police explanation of a random gang shooting. Packing heat and his martial arts skills, he submerges himself in the 'hood to track down his son's shooter - unaware that he's about to inject himself into a gang war, a state of police corruption, and one of the biggest drug-trafficking rings on the West Coast.

What you see above is realy what you get, this time: Seagal pursues the killer without a care to who ordered the hit or the motive behind it. While this seemed a bit simplistic to me at first, considering the usual knack of Seagal's characters to end up eradicating a drug cartel or something similarly heroic in the end, this simplicity keeps the story from going off on tangents that have become commonplace in his low-budget features. His relationship with a pretty motel owner (Carmen Serano), the young man caught in the middle (Jade Yorker,
