Product Description

Amazon.ca

Steven Seagal has always been an awkward action hero. Initially, he had a certain amount of credibility thanks to his nebulous association with secret government agencies and mastery of aikido, which helped to excuse his bad acting. But as a self-righteous action hero in the vein of Schwarzenegger and Stallone (which helps to explain his bad acting), Seagal fell into unintentional self-parody faster and more dramatically than either of his two predecessors. In Out for Justice, Seagal plays Gino Felino, a Brooklyn-born cop known and respected by everyone--both good and bad--in his neighborhood. The worst of the neighborhood baddies is Richie Madano (William Forsythe), a crack-smoking killer who murders his partner and terrorizes the neighborhood. Technically, Felino is a terrible cop--touching evidence at murder scenes, stealing evidence, intimidating witnesses--but only by breaking those rules can he bring in this horrible criminal. As his soon-to-be-ex-wife discovers, he does everything because he cares too much. Julianna Margulies (ER) has a small but thankless role as Richie's hooker girlfriend, and Gina Gershon (Face/Off, Bound) has an equally thankless role as Richie's foul-mouthed, bar-owning sister. The movie plays like a vanity piece for Seagal, and in that vein, it is fascinating to watch. --Andy Spletzer

5.0 out of 5 stars That's for Bobby! Nov. 26 2003
Format:DVD
I find it appropriate to review this, one of Seagal's best films and a classic in the genre. His career now a shell of its former self, Seagal proves with 'OFJ' that he used to deliver the goods.
I used to think there wasn't much to making a good Seagal film. How hard can it be? But his recent efforts, which have gone straight to DVD, prove that some talent is required to make a satisfying rogue-cop-on-a-mission flick.
Seagal plays Brooklyn cop Gino Felino (I'm not kidding) whose partner is blown away on the streets (18th Avenue, we're told over and over) by the crack-smoking lunatic Richie, played with aplomb by William Forsythe. Using his acute knowledge of 'the neighborhood', Gino sets off on revenge, killing several dozen people before the suitably ultraviolent finale.
The film has many things going for it. Firstly, Seagal attempts a Brooklyn accent and an overall Brookln persona which is priceless to watch. Second, the violence is top notch. It starts off strong with a pimp being put through a windshield after insulting Gino's Italian-American heritage. The violence then escalates as Gino uses tried-and-true methods of interrogation such as the old cue-ball in the bar towel, shots to the family jewels, the snapping of wrists, and good old fashioned Smith and Wesson. Thirdly, William Forsythe is amazing as Richie, proving that he will throw himself into a role totally and completely. His fat man waddle, crazy crooked mustache, and berserker behavior make him a great villain. Think about it--Seagal versus a fat character actor doesn't sound like much, right? But Forsythe is game and makes the film fun to watch.
What else? The film is totally foul-mouthed, full of off color humor and a message that is morally dubious at best.

3.0 out of 5 stars "Let's take him for some porkchops." Jan. 1 2003
By sliphsc
Format:DVD
On the positive side, Steven Seagal managed to top his first movie. Now for the negative. Just like how every character in Marked for Death feels the urge to speak Jamaican (even the Americans), every character in Out for Justice speaks Italian. However, they don't just speak Italian. Every character is an inflated Italian stereotype. I don't know which I detest more, Steven Seagal's cop character who wears a beret, attacks people who don't know the answers to his questions, and continues to break countless bones, or Richie, the most annoying villain ever to be seen on film. However, this film did offer its share of laughs. Steven Seagal shows his naughty side by pocketing three nude photographs of his best friend and Richie's girlfriend, both of whom are dead at the time of the pictures' discovery. He even shows off his find to some women. The puppy subplot was amazing. The ending seemed like something out of a Beethoven movie, but it still beat all of Steven's other endings for funniest (inadvertently) except for The Patriot. You just can't beat a military helicopter shooting flowers.

2.0 out of 5 stars Seagal Seems To Know No Better. Nov. 20 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Out For Justice Steven Seagal's fourth film is pretty much the
same type of carnage which we previsley seen in his last three
films. Breaking Bones using everything from a meat cleaver, pool
balls tightly wound in a sock, to a saw-offed shotgun. The Viloence is high and much more brtual than in "Marked For Death"
Story plays like this Seagal plays a streetwise tough Italian
Cop named Gino, who goes on a one man rampage agaisnt a childhood Nemesis Named Ritchie played by William Forsythe who
made this role every bit as mean and psychotic as it supposed to be. who killed his partner and best friend in Broad Daylight.
Now Gino has become a terrible cop stealing evidence, destroying
establishments, beating the hell out of anyone who gets in his
way of nabbing his quarry when in the end the cop is no better
than the hood he's pursuing. One good thing i say about this film is even though it's terrible it somhow has the uncanny ability to hold the viewer's attention until the climax which is bloody but entertaining.

From the opening scene...right up until Seagal's rescued pup relieves himself on the scumbag who had thrown him out of a moving car, Out For Justice delivers on all levels. Affectionately known as OFJ by its die-hard, no-life fans, this film shows what is truly possible when flawless casting, top rate acting and a superb script come together in a labor of love. The story concerns Gino Fellino, a Brooklyn born cop whose crime fighting genius is not fully appreciated by fellow officers. Perhaps this has something to do with the fact that he commiserates with the local mafia outfit as if he were a member. Playing Gino's villainous foil is veteran character actor William Forsythe, who portrays the drug and sex addicted fat body Ritchie Madano in an Oscar worthy performance. Madano, who has all of the ethnic features of an overweight Dutch boy, mercilessly slaughters Gino's partner, one Bobby Lupo, and then proceeds to joyfully slay anyone foolish enough to get in his way, including a random bystander who had the audacity to ask Ritchie to move his car. Ritchie's highly skilled and ruthless gang of criminal masterminds includes the handsome Bobby Arms, whose signature windbreaker jacket exudes a sense of iron will; the seemingly innocent Bucci, dressed immaculately in a Brooklyn t-shirt and possessing a rap sheet as long as Gino's arm; and the valiant Joey, whose prowess at eliminating bothersome mice from his apartment is legendary in the New York area. Together, Ritchie and his gang terrorize the greater Brooklyn area, blowing through drugs, hookers and money in a violent display of hedonism. Read more ›
