In Seeking Justice, Will Gerard (Cage) is a happily married man whose quiet life is turned upside-down when his wife, Laura (Jones), is brutally attacked while leaving work. At the hospital, waiting for news about his wife's condition, Will meets Simon (Pearce), a concerned stranger who offers to aid Will's family in finding her attacker, in exchange for a favor, sometime in the future. Overcome with grief and fear, Will consents to the deal, unwittingly pulling himself into a vigilante organization that will lead to frightening and deadly consequences. (Gary Reber)

Special features include a behind-the-scenes featurette (HD 07:08) and the theatrical trailer.

The 2.35:1 1080p AVC digital picture exhibits a warm, dense image quality with saturated color and deep, solid blacks. Contrast is well balanced with revealing shadow delineation. Hues are rich and darkly toned, to convey a darker emotional feel. Fleshtones also exhibit a warm but natural appearance. Resolution is excellent, especially during cloe-ups of facial features, hair, clothing, and object texture. The imagery is sharp and pristine throughout. This is an effectively tense rendering that enhances the storytelling. (Gary Reber)

The Dolby® TrueHD 5.1-channel soundtrack is dynamic sounding, with strong .1 LFE bass extension to sub-25 Hz frequencies. Atmospherics and sound effects nicely contribute to the tense storytelling. The orchestral music score sounds dynamic, extending wide and deep across the soundstage and strongly into the surround channels, which provides an enveloping sonic experience during the more intense scenes. Dialogue sounds natural and intelligible, but wanting in spatial integration. This is an effectively tense sonic experience that underscores the tension. (Gary Reber)
