Mercenary For Justice


Picture: C+†††† Sound: B-†††† Extras: D†††† Film: D



Steven Seagal is back and nobody cares in Mercenary For Justice, a very tired and even dated on arrival production Seagal co-produced himself as if he was the next Charles Bronson.Fat chance.Except for landing Luke Goss, the film has pretty unknown actors who all look as bored as Seagal, who has put on more weight than expected.


To his credit, he is trying to stay in the game, but after shaky claims of being a CIA agent that smack of Vanilla Ice honesty and felt very shaky himself when some organized crime criminals threatened him in real life over a movie deal and his possible testimony.Crying wolf too often ruined his reputation and though he still has some fans, his box office has been in decline since the Under Siege franchise was his peak.Imitation Billy Jacks just did not cut it.This is run of the mill and very tired.


The 1.85 X 1 image is slightly hazy and seems to be shot in some digital format, looking even lamer in the pan & scan side.The Dolby Digital 5.1 mix is typical, tired, action gunfire and explosions that Seagalís long line of bad films made standard annoyance.The only extra is a making of the feature, which really serves as a way not to make a feature.
