After his wife is raped, Will is approached by a man from an organization that will exact revenge…for the price of a favor. The group at some point will ask Will for a favor, which he must grant no questions asked.

Nicolas Cage (Will), January Jones (Laura), Guy Pearce (Simon), Harold Perrineau (Jimmy), Jennifer Carpenter (Trudy), Irone Singleton (Scar), Wayne Pere (Cancer), Xander Berkeley (Lt. Durgan), Marcus Brown (Det. Green).

Seeking Justice gives us just a taste of character development before jumping straight into the story. With his wife in the hospital recovering from her brutal rape, Will is devastated. While in the hospital waiting room he is approached by Simon, who is willing to exact revenge on the rapist for the price of a future favor. After agreeing Will finds repayment lands him in a sinister world in which he may or may not be completely disposable. In the end Will may find redemption, or he may find he can never be free.

Acting was decent with Cage delivering decent energy in this one. Jones also did well and played against Cage nicely. Pearce did a good job as antagonist and added nice depth. Perrineau, Carpenter and the remainder of the supporting cast exhibited good quality throughout.

Camera work, sets, and backgrounds were well done and fit the film. Physical effects were minimal but good and added a realistic feel to the film. Dialogue was good, as was sound and soundtrack.

Overall Seeking Justice was a nice crime thriller with an entertaining and solid storyline, good acting, and nice attention to detail. Genre fans will enjoy this the most while Cage fans may find this isn't his usual quirky, action style and be a bit disappointed.

With violence, foul language, and some mild sexuality this should be fine for older teens and above.
