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.

I wasn't really sure about this movie when it was released. I am a life long Cage fan, but this film came out of nowhere in the UK on November 18 (a week after Trespass), and the fact that it had only been released in Italy, didn't bode well.

Believe me, if you are a fan of Cage, this makes up for all the crimes to cinema he has done in the last two years.

It's a tense movie about taking the law into your own hands and facing the consequences.

Cages wife is assaulted, and at the hospital, Mike from Neighbours offers to kill the assailant for a favour in the future.

The deed is done, and six months down the line Cage gets a call, he must kill a known child molester or his family will suffer.

To say anymore about the film will spoil it, but the best thing to do is watch this film cold, and not reading reviews and only seeing the trailer, really made the film a better experience.

Obviously there is a twist in the tale, and although it's nothing special, it makes Cages character more urgent and the film better paced.

The Cage in this is not the one from 'Face/off' or 'Wild at Heart', it's just a normal guy who gets dragged into a world where decisions are not an option.

There are a few plot holes, and some of the narrative borderlines on 'what the?', but over look this, and you will find an tense movie, packed with good performances.

A film not to overlook.

It's not what a lawyer tells me I must do, but it's what humanity, reason, and justice tell me I ought to do.

After his wife (January Jones) is brutally raped, New Orleans teacher Will Gerard (Nic Cage) gets involved with a shadowy vigilante group run by a man called Simon (Guy Pearce). A favour for a favour to get justice seems viable, but all is not as it seems...

To be frank it's just another in a long line of vigilante thrillers that get trundled out every other year. Rarely does one, certainly in the more modern era of film making, have something viable to say, to challenge the thought process of the viewers. Justice (AKA: Seeking Justice) starts off very promising, grabbing the attention whilst having an atmospheric texture about it. Sadly come the mid-point things just get daft (yet Cage stays ultra serious throughout) and in spite of the makers trying to add in some twisty thriller conventions, all the potential (and promise) for thought provoking depth has long since gone.

That said, as an intrigue based drama it's a decent enough watch, with director Roger Donaldson (No Way Out/Thirteen Days) adept in the staging of suspenseful sequences. Yet the lack of kinetic action is sorely felt, the over all feeling being one that Donaldson and crew were not quite sure which way to take the picture. Should we keep things shadowy and suggestive? Or should we have live wire chases and dastardly peril? Justice only winds up as an uneven blend of ideas. While wasting Xander Berkeley and the New Orleans locations is a crime in itself.

Not bad exactly, above average in fact, but just forgettable and another wasted opportunity to add meat to a hot topic in film form. 6/10
