A dumb-dumb variant on the Death Wish vigilante justice genre.
| Original Score: C-
[Cage] acquits himself well enough in this otherwise rudimentary thriller from deliriously unsubtle director Roger Donaldson.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
It's a perfectly palatable and even engaging thriller, albeit one requiring several leaps of faith and/or disengagement with reality.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Donaldson ... seems to have lost all talent for pacing.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
[Cage] shouldn't do any more movies in which his character signals his acceptance of a Faustian bargain by buying two candy bars.
| Original Score: 1/4
It's refreshing to see Nicolas Cage, non-histrionic and sort of subtle, in a halfway clever piece of indie pulp about a teacher who enlists a cult of vigilantes to kill the man who raped his wife.
| Original Score: B-
Seeking Justice evokes the post-Watergate paranoia of '70s thrillers like The Parallax View and Three Days of the Condor without having a worthy conspiracy at the bottom.
It's one of those productions that is neither good enough nor bad enough to be enjoyable.
| Original Score: 2/4
There's a good idea here, in the story of helpless victims who get caught up in citizen vigilantism. But it's buried under a cheap, straight-to-DVD esthetic.
| Original Score: 2/5
It's a crime thriller starring Nicolas Cage, but it's not as bad as that phrase implies.
| Original Score: 3/5
There's plenty to enjoy in this old-fashioned exploitation movie.
I continue to consider Cage a gifted (if uneven) actor, but a movie like "Seeking Justice" challenges my faith.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Seeking Justice is memorable only because it contains what may be my favorite new Cage line reading of all time.
Nicolas Cage has spent so long turning himself into a living cartoon that he's lost the ability to play human beings.
Seeking Justice is an intense thriller so full of shocks it keeps you wired from start to finish.
| Original Score: 3/4
Working with a pip of a premise, Seeking Justice is the kind of effective middle-range pulp thriller that has lately become an endangered species.
Neither the script's conspiracies nor Nicolas Cage's performance is weird enough to trump the film's generic feel...
What is it, Nic? What happened? What do they do, send you the angry-guy action movies that Liam Neeson turns down?
It's not that 'Justice' doesn't achieve its goals - but the goals are so modest that disappointment is inevitable.
