STEVEN SEAGAL plays a brooklyn cop,(GINO) and things go from bad to worse, when his partner is gunned down in broad daylight. To further complicate matters, GINO knows the assassin to be none other than former childhood pal RITCHIE (a very intense WILLIAM FORSYTH.) GINO swears revenge, and in the course of the night, will use any means to get RITCHIE, even if it means defying the mafia, or the law, for which he stands for. Trouble is, RITCHIE (now psychotic with drugs) is more than ready for the vengefull cop and is leaving a litter of dead bodies to lead him to his trail. OUT FOR JUSTICE is without doubt STEVEN SEAGALs finest moment on screen. The violence (some of it, stomach-churning) is nevertheless dispatched out to some worthy looking lowlifes. Action, thriller and of least all, martial arts fan will not be disapointed with this gritty urban thriller.

I'm a big fan of Steven Seagal, so much so that I have every film he as released to date across multiple formats, but even the most ardent of fans surely cannot deny the considerable drop in the quality of his output.

There has been a gradual decline in production values from more or less his first few films, there have been the ocassional glimmers of hope offered but these are very much few and far between unfortunately.

This film, 'Out for Justice', is generally considered to be one of his very best outings, in fact it probably is my favourite (it was was the first film of Steven Seagal's I actually watched and have subsequently gone on to watch it more than any other!); it was released in 1991 and further established him as one of cinemas leading action stars following 'Nico/Above the Law' Above the Law [Blu-ray] [2009] [US Import], Nico - Above The Law [Blu-ray][Region Free], 'Hard to Kill' Hard to Kill [Blu-ray] [1990] [US Import] and Marked for Death [Blu-ray] [1990] [US Import].

The film has a pretty standard storyline for this genre, but it has a strong cast with William Forsythe portraying a particularly nasty villian in the shape of Richie Madano.

Would have loved for this movie to have been in the Steven Seagal Collection, but it;s not, so I ordered it seperatly from the US.
It's a Warner Bros movie so you can be sure it's region free and playable everywhere.
Nice quality blu-ray and one of the first and better Seagal movies in my opinion.

In this film Steven Seagal is a rookie cop (er...how many times have we seen him in this kind of role), who is spurred on in his search for JUSTICE by the death of his close friend. You see some excellent fight scenes which are probably the best I've seen Seagal do in a long time. The bad guy in this film is quite good as well and for most of film Seagal's main aim is to terrorise anyone who knows the whereaboouts of this psycho. For me it still doesn't beat his best film-Under Siege-but it's not bad. If you're a die hard Steven Seagal fan then you'll like this one!

Out for Justice comes from the 'golden period' of Seagal's career, those first few films that introduced him to the world in the late 80s and early 90s. Even within that rarified company Out for Justice shines as an example of how to do a hard-edged action thriller. Not lacking in ambition, it even opens with a quote from writer Arthur Miller about the area the film is set in. Seagal plays Gino Felino, Brooklyn detective, beret-enthusiast and all-round bully and jerk. His good qualities include not standing for prostitutes being beaten by their pimps, a fluctuating respect for the older generation (he'll harass and arrest them, but at least he'll apologise later on), and loyalty to friends. William Forsythe masticates scenery with abandon as Felino's childhood friend Richie Madano, who, clearly tired of life, kills Gino's partner in broad daylight (for reasons explained later) and then hangs around, killing impatient drivers, menacing Julianna Margulies and waiting for Felino to find him.

Gino is irate to begin with, but when Madano's thugs (variously lured by the promise of a safe full of money and other goodies despite Richie being very much an obvious danger to their health) target his family there's no coming back for Richie. That's pretty much it for the plot: Seagal looks around for Forsythe, stopping to hang out with mafia cliches, rescue an abandoned dog and be mean to Gina Gershon and Uncle Junior from The Sopranos. As mentioned above, Out for Justice seems to have more ambition than the average action movie, with its attempt at Godfather-lite mob movie themes.
