I don't usually post reviews but for this film i felt I had to, for all the Seagal fans that have suffered through his lazily shot dtv movies which have ranged from boring, downright awful to almost unwatchable-Urban Justice comes as more than just a breath of fresh air. This film is a throwback to the days when a Seagal film would spit out wanton violence for the pure sake of it; needless blood and gore simply because it could and Seagal beating people up with no mercy at all. Yes this is the film every Seagal has been waiting for, if you disliked the relatively toned down theatrics of Exit Wounds and Half past Dead and were disappointed by the glimpses of past glory in Into the Sun and Belly of the beast, then Urban justice is that remedy.
Not only do you get numerous brutal martial arts set pieces, broken bones,snapped necks and blood spraying around everywhere like a Takeshi Miike picture, but Seagal takes pi**ed off stoic 'im going to kill everyone' attitude to a new level, in this movie he is a one man army mowing down anyone who is going to mess with him. He makes his characters in Marked for Death and Out for Justice seem like choir boys.
Don Fauntleroy has done an amazing job of resurrecting a Seagal who seemed himself not to care where his career was going and after the shambolic last few movies he has come out with, Seagal has finally upped his game hundredfold. I would say its apparent from the titles sequence the dramatic jump in quality this movie has compared to his recent snooze fests. Sit back and enjoy, Steven Seagal is back!
