Critic Reviews for Out for Justice

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (7)

Out for Justice harbors an incredibly simple vengeance plot loaded with enough macho sadism to satiate the action genre's bloodthirsty fans.

If you cut the beatings, you wouldn't be left with much.

January 26, 2006

As a courtesy to his many fans, the ponytailed action hero Steven Seagal not only attacks sleaze but also goes out of his way to examine it.

May 20, 2003 | Rating: 2/5

Seagal is a fascinating hero: he's not slick, he's not real handsome, he's a real strange dresser, and he doesn't seem all that nice a guy. Nevertheless, he's interesting and he's unpredictable. He gives me the creeps.

This is Old Jack City, a place where better actors and directors have taken us frequently in the last year. This particular trip seems unnecessary.

A muddled yet mostly entertaining actioner...

Audience Reviews for Out for Justice


Seagal's accent will give you nightmares, but the violence was a thing of beauty. The bar scene deserves a monument.

Typical Seagal early-90's movie with veteran actor John Forsythe as the bad guy this time and Gina Gershon and the late Jerry Orbach bringing up the rear in co-starring roles. this one is right up there with his best movies.

I remember Forsythe being very entertaining but Seagal needs to go away.
