“There’s always a catch.”
- Seeking Justice
In my search for a movie to watch, I stumbled upon this one. Though I had not taken the time to see the trailer, the description sounded interesting and I also read some reviews which were pretty decent. So, I decided to check it out.
Going into the movie, it started out pretty good – it had lots of action and a good storyline. Being a Nicholas Cage flick, I was looking forward to an action type of film. Though, that’s where it all stops.
I’m not sure what exactly happened but somewhere in the middle things started to fall apart – it all seemed like things were being thrown together. As a movie goer, I felt the story became rushed which felt unnatural. In a sense, too many things were happening at the same time.
As for the storyline, it was good and had potential. Though, it was the execution that made it not quite as enjoyable – it felt too fast. And, yes – very predictable, too predictable.
To be honest, I think they could have made this film better. There was an interesting message in the movie as to why Simon (played by Guy Pearce) did the things that he did. And, it all had to do with the title of the movie which begged the question, “What exactly is justice?”
Who determines what is just and what is unjust? And, who is fit to judge the crimes of others? In a way, this movie talks to those who have been victims of injustice and causes us to think what is right and what is wrong. These are just a few of the questions the film brings up.
Unfortunately, the way the story was told could have improved which made the film less enjoyable. There were times where I just felt like too many things were happening and scenes were just thrown together. As a result, I just didn’t feel satisfied with the film.
Happy movie watching!
