In my opinion Just Cause is one of the most impressive films. I remember that I was very impressed when I saw it for the first time... It's a specific movie, not everyone likes it, but it's impressive. Just Cause filled me with hard to explain energy, made me so embedded in it. The story is really solid, the pacing is great, and all of the actors give great performances. Again the director proved, this time in the movie Just Cause], that he can keep the viewers in suspense all the time. I want to recommend this movie to everyone, you will be satisfied after watching.... Show more
