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.

Goofs

When Will bought the bar from the vending machine, the first two numbers were 11. This should have made the same sound when pressed. Instead, it made two different sounds, and it appeared his fingers moved not to touch 1 twice. See more »

Not Bad at all. Worth watching
18 February 2012 | by valleyjohnSee all my reviews

I have never been Nic Cage's biggest fan. In fact he is to acting , as i am to Ballet Dancing , most of the time but Seeking Justice ( or Justice as it is named in the UK) is definitely one of his less disastrous movies.

Nic Cage plays a husband who's wife is beaten and raped by a stranger while walking to her car. While in the Hospital he gets a visit from a suited man ( Guy Pierce) who offers to eliminate the man who raped his wife but if he accepts , at some stage will have to repay the favour..

The critics panned this film when it came out late last year but i think they have been a little unfair. I found this film highly watch able and the concept a really interesting one. Guy Pierce is really good as Simon and his demeanour is perfect for the bad guy role. Cage doesn't stink up the screen either although i wasn't too happy with seeing the irritating Jennifer Carpenter ( of Dexter fame) in the film but thankfully it was just a cameo role.

Justice has some great action scenes and some interesting ( if a little unbelievable) plot twists and i enjoyed it for what it was - a good action thriller.
