Movie Info

Steven Seagal plays a good if troubled man living in a corrupt world (sound familiar yet?) in this action drama. Gino Felino (Seagal) is a cop who grew up in a tough Brooklyn neighborhood, and while many of his old friends now live on the other side of the law, he retains a fierce loyalty to the community.

Out for Justice harbors an incredibly simple vengeance plot loaded with enough macho sadism to satiate the action genre's bloodthirsty fans.

As a courtesy to his many fans, the ponytailed action hero Steven Seagal not only attacks sleaze but also goes out of his way to examine it.

This is Old Jack City, a place where better actors and directors have taken us frequently in the last year. This particular trip seems unnecessary.

Out for Justice only real weakness is Seagal himself.

If you're into this kind of thing, it works. If you're looking for a good crime flick, Scorsese it's not.

One of Seagal's few decent bonecrunchers thanks to good direction by the underrated John Flynn (The Outfit, Rolling Thunder, Best Seller).

It's so stupid that it's boring.

Seagal may be a success, but I'm just grateful he only makes one movie a year.

Seagal is a fascinating hero: he's not slick, he's not real handsome, he's a real strange dresser, and he doesn't seem all that nice a guy. Nevertheless, he's interesting and he's unpredictable. He gives me the creeps.

Audience Reviews for Out for Justice

Seagal's accent will give you nightmares, but the violence was a thing of beauty. The bar scene deserves a monument.

I remember Forsythe being very entertaining but Seagal needs to go away.
