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

In a career marked with sporadic hits among many misses, and despite initial promise, Seeking Justice falls firmly into the latter category.

Cage looks like a sex partner whose mind is on someone else. It's worse for knowing that someone is his accountant.

The sum of its parts ... don't add up at times and make it feel somewhat disjointed. Cage fans are guaranteed a thrill at seeing him in action ...

Seeking Justice is a mostly fun but ultimately forgettable and generic thriller that makes me yearn for the days where Cage still gave a damn about his career

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.

Nicolas Cage has spent so long turning himself into a living cartoon that he's lost the ability to play human beings.

Without the ambition to ever do anything more, Justice is a lacklustre, low-grade thriller that you'd be disappointed by had it not set its standards so cripplingly low.

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.

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

I continue to consider Cage a gifted (if uneven) actor, but a movie like "Seeking Justice" challenges my faith.

It's one of those productions that is neither good enough nor bad enough to be enjoyable.

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.

Goes from adequate to ludicrous but is only ever compelling enough to serve as audiovisual wallpaper while you're focused on something else.

It's likely Justice will be of interest mainly to those tireless individuals who compile clip reels of Cage's worst moments and upload them to YouTube...

The film's tossed-off look and clunky editorial construction are still secondary to the sheer silliness of its story.

Just as bad as most of what Cage has been doing lately, but doesn't offer any of the campy delight of "The Wicker Man" or "Drive Angry."

Instead of seeking justice, this movie should be looking for some entertainment value.

The film can't even rely on Nicolas Cage to raise its heartbeat, finding the actor looking tired and disinterested. Frankly, with this script, I don't blame him.

[VIDEO] In spite of director Roger Donaldson's respectable pedigree-he directed such winners as "Thirteen Days" and "The World's Fastest Indian"-everything about "Seeking Justice" screams B movie.
