Watch: Mercenary for Justice 2006 123movies, Full Movie Online – Mercenary John Seeger is one of the best in the business. John and his crew are battling some French soldiers on the French-controlled Galmoral Island in Southern Africa as they’re trying to rescue the French Ambassador — there’s a coup going on. John gets angry when some of his soldiers unload their machine guns into the Ambassador and his family, blowing the mission and getting his best friend Radio Jones killed. John goes back to the U.S.A. and goes to the home of Radio’s wife Shondra, tells her the news, and then promises her that he’ll take care of her and her son Eddie. But shortly after he makes that vow, Shondra and Eddie get kidnapped. They were kidnapped by a CIA faction led by CIA dirty deeds man John Dresham and his boss, CIA Black Ops producer Anthony Chapel, who want to force John into doing a mission for them. Kamal Dasan, the son of prominent gun runner Ahmet Dasan, has been arrested and thrown into the Randveld Prison outside of Cape Town, South Africa, and Chapel tells John that John must go there and break Kamal out of prison if John wants to see Shondra and Eddie alive again. What they don’t tell John is that there’s an ulterior motive at work, and that they intend to use John as a patsy in their plan to rip off a highly secured African bank, and they don’t care who gets killed in the process. And it turns out that the whole thing on Galmoral Island was a screw-job engineered by Dresham and Chapel. After John and his crew break Kamal out and stop the robbery at the bank, John sets out to rescue Shondra and Eddie from Dresham and Chapel..

Steven Seagal might be getting old and he also might not have the same shape he had 20 years ago but he certainly still can make a movie great just by being in it.
Actually, this movie itself is pretty good. A lot of money has been spent on making it realistic and entertaining. Reminds you of the good old days when Van Damme and Seagal were backed by big budgets.
Mercenary for Justice is a colorful film filled with explosive action scenes, great dialogues and one-liners, fight scenes in which Seagal actually takes part. It had been a while since I really saw him perform anything close to his Aikido moves. The balance between realism and utter irrealism is just perfect.
You got to remind yourself that action movies are a genre in themselves. Lots of folks try to bring them down for various reasons…they just don’t get the point. Just like romantic comedies and politic thrillers all follow some basic rules, action movies are also lead by a set of pre-requisites that you just expect to be there. Villains you can hate, a hero you can love, a beautiful girl, guns roaring…
The production is good. Direction sometimes reminded me of “24 esquire” hand held camera. Little part of scenes are sometime fast-forwarded to get a feeling of speed. Well… this still is a direct to video release, I guess they have to include some cheesy stuff.
The only downside to this picture is the story. It’s pretty hard to follow but it does keep the characters on the move.
More Shooting Than Martial Arts
I liked Seagal…. In his prime. A long time ago, (Okay, 1989) Steven Seagal was the master of the martial arts, A man who speaks little, but makes up for it in kicking ass… and he was lean and mean. Nowadays, he’s fat, he can barely talk above a whisper, and he just doesn’t care. But he keeps churnin’ out the junk.
And I keep falling victim to it. For Seagal DTV standards, (does that even make sense?) it isn’t as bad as “Submerged” , but it’s not as good as “Belly Of The Beast”.
The plot: John Seeger (you know who…) is an ex-mercenary, CIA, FBI dude, who has to break into a prison, while orchestrating a bank robbery. Then Seeger shoots lots of people. That’s about it.
What’s with the three word titles? Enough already. I guess people don’t think it’s a Seagal flick without a three word title. The title doesn’t even make sense. A mercenary works for money and he has no soul, he doesn’t do it for justice.
The only actors good in this is Roger Guenveur Smith as the villain Mr. Chapel and Luke Goss as Dresham. But even they were coasting.
If you want a good Seagal flick, go with “Out For Justice” instead.
