Seeking Justice is an action-packed thriller from 2011 directed by Roger Donaldson, starring Nicolas Cage, January Jones, and Guy Pearce. The movie tells the story of a man named Will Gerard (Nicolas Cage), a well-respected English teacher living in New Orleans with his beautiful wife, Laura (January Jones). After Laura is brutally attacked and left in a coma, Will is approached by a man named Simon (Guy Pearce) who offers him a chance for revenge.

Simon is a leader of a vigilante group that seeks justice for crime victims in exchange for a "favor" from them. Simon promises Will that his group will find and bring Laura's attacker to justice, but in return, Simon asks him to do a favor for the group when the time comes. Will, desperate for justice, agrees to Simon's terms and the group successfully captures the attacker.

However, it soon becomes apparent that Simon's group is not what it seems, and Will finds himself caught in a web of deceit and violence. As he becomes more deeply involved in Simon's organization, Will realizes that the favors that the group ask for are not just, and he must fight for his own survival and freedom.

Throughout the film, Nicolas Cage delivers a powerful performance as a man consumed by grief and vengeance. His character, Will, is at first hesitant to take the law into his own hands, but he becomes increasingly desperate as he seeks justice for his wife. Cage's portrayal of Will's inner turmoil and the effects of his vigilante activities is nuanced and convincing.

January Jones also delivers a strong performance as Laura, a victim of violence who remains in a coma throughout most of the film. Despite her limited screen time, Jones manages to convey the love and devotion that Will has for his wife, making her character's attack even more tragic.

Guy Pearce, as the mysterious Simon, brings an air of danger and intrigue to the film. His character is shrouded in mystery, and it's never quite clear what his true motives are. Pearce's performance is chilling and adds a sense of menace to the film.

Overall, Seeking Justice is a well-crafted thriller with a compelling story and strong performances. The film's themes of justice, revenge, and vigilantism are explored with depth and complexity, making it a thought-provoking and thrilling experience for audiences.

Seeking Justice is a 2012 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 48 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.1 and a MetaScore of 38.
