Synopsis: Steven Seagal plays tough mercenary John Seeger in this high octane actioner. When Seeger is blackmailed into leading a highly dangerous rescue attempt to free a billionaire’s kidnapped son in South Africa, he goes along with the mission. But when Seeger finds out that he’s been double-crossed the gloves come off – and now there’s going to be hell to pay. Also starring Luke Goss and Michael Kenneth Williams.
Review: Signature Entertainment are re-releasing Mercenary For Justice on digital platforms and Amazon Prime, I was lucky enough to get a first hand look before release.
Mercenary For Justice is alot of fun and Seagal’s character John Seeger could easily pass for Gino in Out For Justice [Even though they both movie titles end in Justice, they’re not related]. Seeger kicks ass and doesn’t even bother to take names, a throwback fight which is memorable is in a bathroom where Seagal twists and snaps anything and everything the guy throws at him before giving him a neck-breaking finisher – classic old school Seagal, fans will love it.
Director Don E. FauntLeroy directed three Seagal movies – Today You Die, Mercenary For Justice and Urban Justice [Renegade Justice] – each movie delivering some awesome action sequences and bringing back some of the 90s style Seagal we all remember. Seagal seemed to love being a part of these movies and looked committed to the roles.
Mercenary For Justice is a fun action movie and features a fun storyline with some trademark Seagal action! We also get action star Luke Goss in a supporting role, Goss and Seagal later reunited for the action thriller Killing Salazar which Goss was the lead and Seagal was support.
Fans of Seagal will not regret re-visiting Mercenary For Justice, it has break-neck action scenes, a really cool opening with Seagal in tactical gear – giving us a glimpse of what he would look like if he joined The Expendables franchise – and to too it off Seagal’s John Seeger is one badass character!
Signature Entertainment presents Mercenary For Justice on Digital Platforms 5th April and on Amazon Prime Video 16th April
