    Here is a story hammered together from discards at the Lunacy Factory. Attempting to find something to praise, I am reduced to this: Cage's performance is not boring.

    January Jones shoulders the thankless part of Cage's often imperiled wife.

    Completed four years ago, Seeking Justice is dutifully directed, with an absolute minimum of thrills, by Roger Donaldson, whose credits include the terrific "No Way Out" (1987)...That film's title is a pretty good description of where Cage's career seems to be headed.

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

    To paraphrase a famous Mae West wisecrack, when Cage is good, he's very good, and when he's bad, he's better. Here, however, he's just plain lousy, and like the film he so passively carries, that's no fun at all.

Both of us were extremely happy with it and went away feeling like we'd seen a high quality piece of filmmaking. The shots, locations, edits and casting were invigorating and yet realistic and lifelike. The dialogue was mainly restrained and nicely understated. The acting was good all around and Nic Cage was especially strong, playing a vulnerable "regular guy". Sure the plot is a little fantastical but within that sort of genre it was smart and well written and the plot was truly suspenseful and thrilling, consistently through. Despite the action/intrigue plot it had a low-key indie feel a lot of the time. Also, the New Orleans locales were excellent. Full Review »

Still packing unnecessary convolution and plot holes, ample action, and a low suspension of disbelief, this thriller is only saved from camp delight due to Pearce's sufficient-enough foil. Though, once the plot takes off, as with almost every Cage movie, mostly of late, things become familiarly complicated, nonsensical, and, oh yes, embarrassing and intermittently funny. Cage fans not to be disappointed; he may even exceed your expectations (not that the bar has been set very high). Full Review »
