"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.
