Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A dumb-dumb variant on the Death Wish vigilante justice genre."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"Donaldson ... seems to have lost all talent for pacing."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Seeking Justice is like mediocre pizza; It won't change the world but it should satisfy those hungry for a well-made, generic meal."
‑ Richard Haridy, Quickflix
"...a hopelessly uneven thriller that just isn't able to live up to its seemingly can't-miss premise..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Not much better than the dreck Nic Cage has been shoveling at us in recent years - a tad smarter, perhaps. But as in life, he keeps getting up off the mat and coming back for more, even if much of his audience isn't returning the favor."
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
"[Cage] acquits himself well enough in this otherwise rudimentary thriller from deliriously unsubtle director Roger Donaldson."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"[Cage] shouldn't do any more movies in which his character signals his acceptance of a Faustian bargain by buying two candy bars."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"As far as a Cage film goes, Seeking Justice is better than the last couple major theatrical releases that have hit the screens."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"There is a strange and sometimes wondrous intensity in Cage's performances in these films; sometimes his madness is enough to elevate a film - like Werner Herzog's The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans - to a kind of trashy sublimity."
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"As it stands, veteran director Roger Donaldson and writers Todd Hickey and Robert Tannen instead turn Seeking Justice into a lengthy chase movie that grows ever more ludicrous."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Common Sense Media
"It's a perfectly palatable and even engaging thriller, albeit one requiring several leaps of faith and/or disengagement with reality."
‑ John Anderson, Newsday
"It's refreshing to see Nicolas Cage, non-histrionic and sort of subtle, in a halfway clever piece of indie pulp about a teacher who enlists a cult of vigilantes to kill the man who raped his wife."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Despite growing increasingly preposterous as the minutes tick by, Roger Donaldson's Seeking Justice is still at the high-end of star Nicholas Cage's recent output."
‑ Simon Foster, Screen-Space
"The movie opens with an embarrassingly obvious scene of exposition and ends in an abandoned mall with a laborious explanation by a talking killer and further villainous actions cleared up by a trusting local detective who can sweep things under the rug."
‑ Adam Lippe,
"Ah, Nicolas Cage, you donkey- faced old ham. When did you finally give up on acting and abandon yourself totally to self-parody?"
‑ Donald Clarke, Irish Times
