Did You Know?


The original script "The Price of Our Blood" was written by novelist R. Lance Hill but was completely rewritten by Steven Seagal, who felt that Hill's screenplay didn't reflect the reality of Brooklyn or took full advantage of the animosity and broken friendship between Gino and Richie.

"You crazy? You coulda shot somebody upstairs!" "But there ain't nobody upstairs!"
1 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

Sometimes, you're just in the mood for a good ass-kicking action movie. That is the definition of Out for Justice.

The movie is not very big on plot, although it does offer some in-sight on different back-stories, characters' pasts and several other things. We do get to know some characters pretty well, but others not so much.

Steven Seagal stars as the protagonist Gino Felino, the tough, ass-kicking cop who does things his own violent way but still has a soft side evident.

William Forsythe stars as the antagonist Richie Madano, the drug using, dirty, evil, sniveling, careless wise-guy who's violent night-long/citywide rampage has Gino chasing him all over town.

There are a lot of great action scenes, and plenty of ass-kicking by Steven Seagal for those who are into pure action. I usually like movies with a good story, but once in a while I like to kick back with a good, senseless action movie. So if you're into movies that favor action over plot: This is definitely one for you.
