Consensus: Seeking Justice is nothing more than a typical potboiler with another phoned-in performance by Nicolas Cage.

Peter Rainer
Christian Science Monitor

A dumb-dumb variant on the Death Wish vigilante justice genre.

Donaldson ... seems to have lost all talent for pacing.

Seeking Justice is about a more believable, low-tech network of batmen out to do what the police are incapable of.

[Cage] acquits himself well enough in this otherwise rudimentary thriller from deliriously unsubtle director Roger Donaldson.

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.

Seeking Justice is like mediocre pizza; It won't change the world but it should satisfy those hungry for a well-made, generic meal.
