Seeking Justice (2012)



Critic Consensus: Seeking Justice is nothing more than a typical potboiler with another phoned-in performance by Nicolas Cage.

Critic Reviews for Seeking Justice

All Critics (71) | Top Critics (20)

A dumb-dumb variant on the Death Wish vigilante justice genre.

Christian Science Monitor
Top Critic

[Cage] acquits himself well enough in this otherwise rudimentary thriller from deliriously unsubtle director Roger Donaldson.

Top Critic

It's a perfectly palatable and even engaging thriller, albeit one requiring several leaps of faith and/or disengagement with reality.

Donaldson ... seems to have lost all talent for pacing.

[Cage] shouldn't do any more movies in which his character signals his acceptance of a Faustian bargain by buying two candy bars.

Top Critic

Seeking Justice is like mediocre pizza; It won't change the world but it should satisfy those hungry for a well-made, generic meal.

Audience Reviews for Seeking Justice

"Nicolas Cage is kinda back were I like him to be. In good movies doing good acting. Some of his work lately has been questionable. But I am glad that in this film he has restored my faith in him. The movie is not amazing, but it's a good action thriller about revenge. But the revenge that was suppose to be about "Seeking Justice" soon turns into this community of viscous killers out doing their own form of justice. I thought the story was interesting and I really liked Cage and Jones together. I thought he seemed too old to be playing her love interest, but I think it worked. Overall, the film delivered and I enjoyed it."


Super Reviewer

A slick, hard-edged, surprisingly smart and riveting action-thriller thats visceral and filled with unexpected twist and turns. A strong film with solid performances from its great cast and two wicked twist that you wont see coming. An excting edge of your seat film that will keep your heart-pounding. It has a seductive rythem all its own. Nicolas Cage is explosive, one of his better performances and films in the last few years. Guy Pearce is at his best, giving an elctrifying performance. Cage and Pearce work well together and square off with explosive intensity. The film works profoundly well and has you screaming at the end wanting more. A wildly entertaining and mind-blowing thrill-ride from the start to its shocking finish.

Vengeance always has a price

Not bad at all, it's worth watching! Seeking Justice has some great action scenes and some interesting plot twists and i enjoyed it for what it was,a good action thriller.

After his wife is assaulted, a husband enlists the services of a vigilante group to help him settle the score. Then he discovers they want a 'favor' from him in return.
