LOVEFiLM By Post

Action thriller starring Nicolas Cage, January Jones and Guy Pearce. When his beautiful musician wife, Laura (Jones), is brutally assaulted and left severely traumatised, high school teacher Will Gerard (Cage), having little faith in the power of the law, jumps at the offer of instant justice from Simon (Pearce), the leader of a vigilante group. Justice comes at a price, however, so when Will rashly agrees to repay the group by doing them a favour in return, he soon finds himself caught in a situation he is ill-prepared for. Jennifer Carpenter and Harold Perrineau co-star.

I wouldn't say that nicoles cage is my favorite actor but he always seems to be cast in good films and this one is no exception, he is cast as a happily married school teacher with a pretty normal life but everything changes one night when his wife is brutally raped and taken to hospital, while sitting in a waiting area trying to get his head around what has happened he is approached by a stranger representing an organisation that delivers justice outside of the legal system, after being told of the hardships his wife would face in court if the case went to trial and the risk of justice not being done the school teacher decides to accept this offer of alternative justice, all he has to do in return is something like breaking a security camera when they call the favour in but of course there is much more to it than that and on the whole this is a very entertaining film starring nicoles cage and to his credit he puts in a great performance all the way through with a good story and skillful directing, a film that's well worth buying

Nicolas Cage was exellent in this role of a teacher,whos wife is raped,and gets sucked into a life changing situation.well supported by january Jones,and Guy pearce in a pacy edgy thriller well worth watching. The sinister simon{guy pearce}offers Will {nick cage}the chance of revenge on what has happened to his wife,all simon wants is to call in a favour,to take care of things,confused will decides to go along with this idea,but little does he know what he has let himself in for.the violent attacker is bumped off,the streets are safer as simon says,he is part of a secret organisation,who are they?How many are there?Who can be trusted?Will,s life is about to spiral out of control as "The favour" is called in.The code word they use "The hungry rabbit jumps"crops up a lot with serious affect.You could watch this film more than once an enjoyable watch from the start,and a nice touch at the end as will passes on an info disc on the sinister group .One of the best films ive watched this year.

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).

As an actor who seems to make a movie every three weeks or so, Cage has to get it right occasionally and I did thoroughly enjoy Justice.

He is convincing as the husband having to cope with the aftermath of his wife being brutally raped and the viewer cannot help but empathise with his subsequent decisions.

Don't worry, I'm not going to divulge any spoilers but, suffice it to say that things take a sinister turn, there's plenty of tension and action and there are some clever twists thrown in.

Only criticisms are that it feels perhaps 10 minutes overlong and a couple of the action sequences struck me as rather improbable.

No big deal though. Justice is an entertaining and satisfying movie, that raises some quite profound moral questions about revenge and motivation.

Well worth a look.

"Justice" is an entertaining enough film but I thought that it was overlong and that it lost it's way in the final third after a promising and exciting first half. Nicolas Cage plays the role of a mild mannered teacher whose wife gets raped in a violent assault. A stranger ,played by Guy Pearce approaches him and tells him that if Cage gives him the go ahead , he can have the rapist killed - but adds that he would expect future favours in return. Cage agrees and the rapist is killed , but he soons finds himself sucked into the dangerous world of a well organised vigilante group with an extensive reach. He is asked to commit a crime and baulks at the idea somewhat to start with before agreeing. Can Cage escape the clutches of this group or will he find himself further embroiled with them ? The film degenerates into chase scenes ,shoot outs and the fugitive on the run stereotypes before ending up with a dramatic finale at a deserted shopping mall beside the New Orleans Superdome. "Justice" was an OK thriller ,but could have been better. Perhaps it can be seen as an allegory about the malign influence of secret societies and networks in the USA and elsewhere on ordinary decent people whom they want to torment and harass.
