Fun fact: Since 2007, Nic Cage has completed sixteen (16!) movies. He’s got three more in post-production right now, and one more, Black Butterfly, recently announced. That means that by the end of this year, he will have released twenty films in the last five years.
That? That is fucking insane.
Movies like Seeking Justice show how it’s possible, though. He’s not making good movies, he’s just churning them out like they’re bean burritos at a goddamn Taco Bell. Seeking Justice is about a man who, distraught over an attack on his wife, strikes a bargain with a shadowy vigilante group who promise vengeance, only to — surprise — learn that there’s more than meets the eye, and now he’s in the shit. The slab of slender concrete that is January Jones co-stars as his wife, and sadly, the fantastic Guy Pearce slums it as the sinister baddie-bad, but looks slick doing it. Nic Cage looks like a cat ate a chipmunk and then took a shit on his head. But he widens his eyes a lot, so you know he’s actin’ his ass off.
Oh, Guy Pearce. When are you going to happen around here, anyway?
Anyway, here’s the trailer. It looks spectacularly bland and formulaic and tepid. Look, it’s either watch the trailer or go back to work, people. You decide how you want to waste the next 120 seconds of your dull, pathetic life.
