User Reviews: Sometimes, you’re just in the mood for a good ass-kicking action movie. That is the definition of Out for Justice.
The movie is not very big on plot, although it does offer some in-sight on different back-stories, characters’ pasts and several other things. We do get to know some characters pretty well, but others not so much.
Steven Seagal stars as the protagonist Gino Felino, the tough, ass-kicking cop who does things his own violent way but still has a soft side evident.
William Forsythe stars as the antagonist Richie Madano, the drug using, dirty, evil, sniveling, careless wise-guy who’s violent night-long/citywide rampage has Gino chasing him all over town.
There are a lot of great action scenes, and plenty of ass-kicking by Steven Seagal for those who are into pure action. I usually like movies with a good story, but once in a while I like to kick back with a good, senseless action movie. So if you’re into movies that favor action over plot: This is definitely one for you.
