Since 2001, Mr. Seagal has starred in ten direct-to-video lensed-in-Eastern-Europe smack-fests: TICKER, HALF PAST DEAD, THE FOREIGNER, OUT FOR A KILL, BELLY OF THE BEAST, OUT OF REACH, INTO THE SUN, SUBMERGED, TODAY YOU DIE, BLACK DAWN, and now MERCENARY FOR JUSTICE. And on the way are: SHADOW MAN, HARVESTER, ENEMY OF THE UNSEEN, and PRINCE OF PISTOLS.
Amazing, isn't it?
Anyway, Seagal plays John Seeger, ultra-mercenary and apparent ass-kicker who's forced to take on an unwanted mission when his dead pal's family is kidnapped and treated rather rudely. Expect lots of shooutouts and slapfights, Seagaloholics, because MERCENARY is a whole lot of the same exact schpiel.
While certainly not Seagal's lamest effort of the past six years (and I underline the word 'effort'), MERCENARY is nothing more than cheaply-made action-flick meatloaf that's been sitting in the fridge a few days too long. If you're looking for stuff like plot, characterization, and intensity, look elsewhere. If you want (yet another) glimpse at the aging Lord of DTV Action, you could pick worse ones than MERCENARY FOR JUSTICE.
