Justice for a Box Office Flop?,
This review is from: Seeking Justice (DVD)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
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.
