Trivia

Director Don E. Fauntleroy agreed to direct the film under the terms that Steven Seagal would stay on set until he was told he could leave. See more »

Goofs

In the shootout between Simon and Shaw, Shaw runs out of bullets, symbolized by a "click". However, he is shooting with a pistol. When a pistol runs out of bullets, the slide remains in its backwards position, for faster reloading. When it is in that position, the pistol can never produce a click. See more »

just because it makes sense doesn't mean its good!!
18 February 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I can understand why Stevo fans have given this a good rating because it is an easily digestible film unlike his normal messily edited attempt at action classics like Shadow Man and Submerged... I have seen all the stevo's and this is definitely just under average (subjective to Stevo films). He is trying, but there is a total lack of imagination in this film. The fight scenes are pretty unimaginative with Stevo doing a lot of donkey kicks that aren't really used in Aikido, He's to fat to do all these kicks!!! And there is a really boring car chase and an even more boring shootout at the end where he just stands still while bad guy's walk through the same door one at a time getting shot! What happened to his unique style that got everyone hooked like in Marked for Death and Out For Justice. The music is awful and detracts from what is happening in the story which is hard because there isn't much of a story at all! No no no!

Even though Stevo films aren't amazing at least they usually have imagination!! I thought Submerged was better than this film its got a lot of potential in the story and some great supporting actors and action although ruined by lousy editing... Urban Justice stands out as a Stevo film because it is well edited even thought the Story and the Screenplay are really dull, it is just a breath of fresh air for Stevo fans because his films are so formulaic and this film is slightly different to his usual offering.
