Even though once great action star Steven Seagal is an executive producer of MERCENARY FOR JUSTICE, it is one of his worst
films and that he just showed up for a paycheck (and not having to do as many days as he usually does for his other films).
Seagal is mercenary John Seeger (who thinks up these names?!) who is hired to rescue the son of a billionaire arms dealer
out of a South African prison before he gets sent back to the USA to be in Leavenworth. You have a really sleaze ball who
took the job of hiring a group of mercenaries to do the job including kidnapping the son and widow of an odl friend of Seeger's
who just got killed in a mercenary operation outsourced from the CIA. A scumbag from the CIA wants Seeger dead and soon you
realize MERCENARY FOR JUSTICE really doesn't care about it's plot as it becomes about breaking into a bank to electronically
transfer funds. Jacqueline Lord provides eye candy as the on and off girlfriend of Seeger and then you have the blond who
lasts 15 minutes to distract you from the script. Leave your brain at the door and consider it a mild 90 minute time waster.
VIDEO: 1.85:1 (Anamorphic Widescreen)/ 1.33:1 (Full Frame)
On this double-sided disc, you get the option of the widescreen version on one side and Pan and Scan version on the other.
The transfer is OK, but a little grain/ video noise is apparent. Not a stellar job by any account.
AUDIO: English 5.1 Dolby Surround
Subtitles: English, Spanish
Dialogue is OK and the surround sound is just OK. Again it just didn't impress me. Yet I might not been blown over because
I was htinking how Steven had made better movies than this one.
SPECIAL FEATURES: The fifteen minute making of featurette is one part cast and the crew kissing each other's butts while
giving a half decent look at the making of MERCENARY FOR JUSTICE.
FINAL ANALYSIS: MERCENARY FOR JUSTICE is just a time killer. Steven Seagal fans will want it. Seagal has made better films
than this. Go watch those films if you expect a great Seagal film because this one isn't it.
