Nicholas Cage stars in this crime thriller as Will Gerard, a school teacher, whose wife, Laura (January Jones) is savagely raped. When a man who calls himself Simon (Guy Pearce) approaches him at the hospital and offers him the opportunity of gaining justice for his wife, Will reluctantly accepts it. The condition is that Will owes Simon a favour but what he doesn't realise is that the favour is killing another person. When the rapist is murdered, Will finds himself caught up in a tangled web of occult vigilantes who want him to kill an investigative reporter. When he goes to warn the reporter, the reporter panicks and attacks him, and is accidentally killed. Will then must go on the run as well as trying to clear his name. But the web of vigilantes is more widespread than he realised.
I was pleasantly surprised by this movie as I don't like everything that Nicholas Cage is in, although I do like Cage himself. He's funny, charismatic, easy on the eyes, with a pleasant voice, but that isn't enough to make a good movie and he's starred in some real stinkers (e.g. The Wicker Man (2006).
Justice was directed by Roger Donaldson, who also directed Dante's Peak (1997), The Getaway (1994), No Way Out (1987), and The Bounty (1984).
