Those who enjoy Seagal's stuff will probably dig this one a little more than, say, OUT OF REACH FOR A SUBMERGED SUNBEAST'S BLACK BELLY FOREIGN DAWN KILL.

Audience Reviews for Mercenary for Justice


"That's it for you, poophole!"

Please note that the line above is really in this film.

These days picking on a direct-to-video Steven Seagal movie in a review is kind of like shooting fish in a barrel, but sometimes it has to be done. Mercenary for Justice isn't the worst of his movies but it's definitely not a good film. Seagal doesn't really show up until about 12 minutes into the film, and his first line really sounds like it was dubbed in by somebody else. After that he seems like he's at least present although it's hard to tell if he's interested.

And the script. Seagal is a mercenary (for justice?) robbing banks, breaking into prisons, killing guards and bank security guys and whoever shows up, in order to get another mercenary a military burial. There's a lot more to it, but none of it really makes any sense.

That's probably not going to stop some people from watching Mercenary for Justice, or even enjoying it if they're the right kind of viewer. No one is watching Seagal movies made in 2006 looking for sense. Or even good fights. I think we're mostly just looking for a bad movie. The biggest problem with Mercenary for Justice may be that it isn't bad enough.

Lurple J.

One of Seagal's best (not a lot of those). Something Seagal makes that doesnt have the wife-killed, daughter-kidnapped plot.
