Seeking Justice Reviews

  • 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.

    Owen Gleiberman — Entertainment Weekly

  • Donaldson ... seems to have lost all talent for pacing.

    Jeannette Catsoulis — New York Times

  • 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.

    Nick Pinkerton — Village Voice

  • 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.

    Elizabeth Weitzman — New York Daily News

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

    Roger Ebert — Chicago Sun-Times

  • There's plenty to enjoy in this old-fashioned exploitation movie.

    Ben Sachs — Chicago Reader

  • It's a crime thriller starring Nicolas Cage, but it's not as bad as that phrase implies.

    Bill Goodykoontz — Arizona Republic

  • Seeking Justice is an intense thriller so full of shocks it keeps you wired from start to finish.

    Rex Reed — New York Observer

  • [Cage] shouldn't do any more movies in which his character signals his acceptance of a Faustian bargain by buying two candy bars.

    Lou Lumenick — New York Post

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

    James Berardinelli — ReelViews

  • Neither the script's conspiracies nor Nicolas Cage's performance is weird enough to trump the film's generic feel...

    John DeFore — Hollywood Reporter

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

    Robert Abele — Los Angeles Times

  • 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.

    Kevin Carr — 7M Pictures

  • 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.

    Simon Foster — Screen-Space

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

    David Nusair — Reel Film Reviews

  • 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.

    Philip Martin — Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

  • (Seeking Justice movie review at Dark Horizons)

    Dark Horizons

  • 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.

    Adam Lippe —

  • 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.
