Storyline

In New Orleans, English teacher of the high school Rampart High, Will Gerard, and his wife, musician Laura Gerard, are in love with each other. One night, Laura leaves a rehearsal and is assaulted, while Will is playing chess with his friend Jimmy. Will is visiting her in hospital when, out of the blue, a stranger named Simon tells him that he belongs to an organization of vigilantes and offers to eliminate the assailant. In return, the organisation would want a favor from Will in the future. Will agrees, and the criminal is murdered. Six months later, Simon collects his debt with Will. He demands that Will kill Alan Marsh, a pedophile. Will accidentally kills Alan and soon he learns that the victim was an awarded journalist that was investigating the organization. Now he seeks evidences to prove his innocence but the network of the organization is powerful and is seeking Will out to eliminate him. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

A Promise Is a Promise and The Hungry Rabbit Jumps
10 March 2012 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In New Orleans, the English teacher of the high school Rampart High Will Gerard (Nicolas Cage) and his wife, the musician Laura Gerard (January Jones), are in love with each other. One night, Laura leaves the rehearsal in a theater and is assaulted and beat up by a rapist while Will is playing chess with his friend Jimmy (Harold Perrineau).

Will stays in the hospital and out of the blue, a stranger named Simon (Guy Pearce) tells that he belongs to an organization of vigilantes and offers to eliminate the rapist. In return, they would want a favor from Will in the future. Will accepts the agreement, the criminal is murdered and six months later, Simon collects his debt with Will. He gives the password "The hungry rabbit jumps" to Will that learns that he shall kill the pedophile Alan Marsh (Jason Davis). Will accidentally kills Alan and sooner he learns that the victim was an awarded journalist that was investigating the organization. Now he seeks evidences to prove his innocence but the network of the organization is powerful and is seeking Will out to eliminate him.

"Seeking Justice" is an entertaining thriller with a good story that entwines the idea of "Death Wish" with "The Star Chamber". The non-stop action does not give time to the viewer to think and consequently hides the flaws in the screenplay. The forgettable story is quite predictable; Nicolas Cage and January Jones have good performances; but in the end I enjoyed this film. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "O Pacto" ("The Pact")
