I don't understand the negative reviews..
26 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

I've used this site for nearly 2 decades. Yet, this is the first time I have felt compelled to sign up or comment.

Nicholas Cage's performances was.. Nicholas Cage. As expected. He did well.

The movie? Thought provoking, and I thought the contrast of them both having diseases was intriguing.

I thought the conclusion was interesting. Would have liked to see the bad guy killed by Cage, but I think it's due to the fact that he realized they were both gone anyway.

What I find truly disgusting, is that this movie had poor reviews. I'm wondering if people's expectations of movies has gone to total crap.

While I didn't find this the most awesome movie I've ever seen, I also surely didn't think it was a bad movie. I have often found that critic reviews are so harsh they can hardly be trusted at all. But, when viewers find a movie that has not at all shown that it is a lemon, call it a lemon, I'm really wondering what has happened to us.
