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

As far as a Cage film goes, Seeking Justice is better than the last couple major theatrical releases that have hit the screens.

Despite growing increasingly preposterous as the minutes tick by, Roger Donaldson's Seeking Justice is still at the high-end of star Nicholas Cage's recent output.

...a hopelessly uneven thriller that just isn't able to live up to its seemingly can't-miss premise...

There is a strange and sometimes wondrous intensity in Cage's performances in these films; sometimes his madness is enough to elevate a film - like Werner Herzog's The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans - to a kind of trashy sublimity.

The movie opens with an embarrassingly obvious scene of exposition and ends in an abandoned mall with a laborious explanation by a talking killer and further villainous actions cleared up by a trusting local detective who can sweep things under the rug.

Not much better than the dreck Nic Cage has been shoveling at us in recent years - a tad smarter, perhaps. But as in life, he keeps getting up off the mat and coming back for more, even if much of his audience isn't returning the favor.

As it stands, veteran director Roger Donaldson and writers Todd Hickey and Robert Tannen instead turn Seeking Justice into a lengthy chase movie that grows ever more ludicrous.

Ah, Nicolas Cage, you donkey- faced old ham. When did you finally give up on acting and abandon yourself totally to self-parody?

There needs to be a shot of [Cage] raising his fists looking up to the sky screaming 'JUSTIIIIIIICE!' as the camera pulls up, but the movie doesn't go there.

'Death Wish' goes the corporate route in this silly action-thriller that's nonetheless leagues beyond Nicolas Cage's usual fare.

A bland revenge thriller with the Cage's blandest star turn since he sleepwalked through Bangkok Dangerous.
Robert Levin

Nicolas Cage plays the regular man protagonist with surprising ease, dialing down the nutty affectations and keeping you engaged.

The only thing you'll be wondering during this inert alleged thriller is where it all went wrong.

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

March 16, 2012
This vigilante potboiler jettisons any sense of realistic goodwill with viewers by detouring into a series of silly plot twists and half-cocked conspiracy theories.

An enjoyably loopy genre exercise. Connoisseurs of the Nic will need no further recommendation.
Peter Sobczynski
March 16, 2012
An agonizingly banal exercise in generic filmmaking makes even the most run-of-the-mill made-for-TV potboiler seem like a Charlie Kaufman head-spinner by comparison.

If you are a hard core Nic Cage fan this won't kill ya, but avoiding it may make you stronger.

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