much better than attack force still not great though
17 November 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Steves last two films (flight of fury,attack force)where how can i say completely rubbish. so one i saw renegade justice in a DVD shop i was a bit reluctant to buy it but i thought to myself give it a try it could be good.so i bought it and hoped for the best lets just say renegade justice is 10 million times better than attack force and flight of fury. but that still doesn't mean it is Seagals comeback far from it.the plot is simple a young cop is shot dead in a drive by shooting in a rough neighbourhood. Seagal plays Simon a mysterious man who wants revenge on the people who shot and killed his son. the film is an improvement compared to his recent movies for instance Seagal is actually doing his own fight scenes without the help of body doubles. also there is no dubbing from someone who sounds nothing like Seagal. but there some annoying parts like when every character speaks they start a sentence with the word mother****er and end every sentence with the word to. also when a person dies they die in an slow motion sequence that really got on my nerves.still not his best but a big improvement lets hope his next film is a bigger improvement.
