Fire Down Below
(these three are priceless in humor alone!)
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.Read more ›
Steven does his usual role, but I was shocked at myself when he actually laughed, and when he discovers the dog that was thrown from a moving car, it's really sweet. Anyone with a big maternal instinct will go all gooey at this scene. And his son as well, was a good little actor, his face said it all when he wanted to play baseball with his dad, and his dad got a call, and had to leave. Awwwwww!
William Forsythe plays an alright villain, he does come across as a bit OTT at times, and not particularly convincing. The late great Jerry Orbach is sadly underused in this, as is Gina Gershon, who looks completely different to how she normally does. I barely recognised her!
There's some pretty awful scenes in this - not awful, but awful in the way I had to look away from the screen! There's the snooker (pool over the pond!) ball in the material, the meat cleaver, and various other bone crunching violent bits.
The finale of the movie is light hearted, and it seems to take no time at all to get there. Gino comes across the guy who threw the dog who he's now adopted, out of the window, and tells him he's an animal lover. Without revealing too much more, it's really funny, and even the dog gets its own back.
Out For Justice is definitely a film to be picked up, especially in high definition, by any Steven Seagal fan, or action movie lover. You won't get much plot, but it's good.
Now can we get rid of the ponytail?! Not attractive on Steven!
