Brooklyn cop Gino Felino is about to go outside and play catch with his son Tony when he receives a phone call alerting him that his best friend Bobby Lupo has been shot dead in broad daylight on 18th Avenue in front of his wife Laurie Lupo and his two kids by drug kingpin Richie Madano, who has been Gino and Bobby's enemy since childhood. As Gino is hunting Madano down, Gino discovers the motive behind Bobby's murder. This is when Gino's hunt for Madano leads to the showdown of a lifetime.

Trivia

John Flynn later recalled:

I really liked working with Bill Forsythe and Jerry Orbach and all those guys in the car who played the killers. But I didn't get along with Steven. He was always about an hour late for work and caused a lot of delays. We shot until October 31, 1990, because an IATSE strike was threatened. (IATSE stands for International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employes, Moving Picture Technicians, Artists and Allied Crafts. - Ed.) Warner Bros. told us we had to be on a plane by November 1. So we shot for about a month in Brooklyn. The rest of Out for Justice was shot in and around south Los Angeles. We filmed those scenes on Lacy Street, in a slummy area of old wooden buildings that could pass for Brooklyn. See more »

" Anybody seen Richie? I'm gonna keep comin' back until someone REMEMBERS seein' Richie."
24 February 2011 | by See all my reviews

Seagal's best. I mean he actually tries to act.

Instead of squinting and mumbling through his usual self righteous blather he actually kicks ass and takes names verbally.....then physically.

He's a cop named Gino in Brooklyn and his partner gets clipped by a guy he knew for years from the neighborhood. He walks a line between loyalty to his job and partner and his feelings for the killer's family, whom he's known all his life.

Said killer, in a role absolutely OWNED by Bill Forsythe, is a drug fried crazoid. No sympathy for him. But you felt for his parents. Old country folks these. That's old country Italy.

Of course the scene of scenes was the bar fight. Great lines and a great Aikido clinic on display. Plus a cameo from martial arts weapons legend Dan Inosanto. He was a student of Bruce Lee. (Maybe you've heard of him?)

Seagal caught heat for his OTT "Noo Yawk" accent but I liked it. He actually acted here. His last decent performance before he headed into "straight to video" hell.
