Alternate Versions

Old TV versions of the movie had some alternate scenes and dialogue to replace ones that were too violent. Couple of extra scenes were also added in these versions; After killing woman in the car,Richie enters the shop to get a new shirt since his got blood on it. After getting a shirt,alarm goes off and he shoots it. This scene fixes continuity mistake from normal version in which Richie wears different shirt right after his first few scenes. Second additional scene is where Richie and his thugs break in Gino's wife house but she's not there. After some neighbors show up,Richie threatens them and leaves. See more »

"You crazy? You coulda shot somebody upstairs!" "But there ain't nobody upstairs!"
1 June 2008 | by emperor_benderSee 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.

8/10.
