The Dying of the Light (2014) had a $5 million budget of which $1 million was Nicolas Cage's salary. The shooting location was mostly Romania with some additional scenes shot in Australia (doubling for Kenya) and the USA. The film's independent financier was David Grovic (aka David Haring), a Bahamanian businessman whose prior film credits include The Bag Man (2014), which Grovic directed, co-wrote and acted in.

The ear was literally the most fascinating part of this movie
Nicolas Cage is Evan Lake, a dedicated veteran CIA agent in the last stages of his career. He has been riding a desk for the last years and does not like it. The most elevating moments are the motivational speeches he is asked to do for the new CIA agents in training.
When the trail of an old enemy, presumed dead for decades, surfaces and coincides with Lake being diagnosed with a terminal form of dementia, the choice is easy. He is going to settle one last score.
The story has some potential, but unfortunately the movie never gets past the B-movie predicate.
The ear I mentioned in the summary seems to live a life of it's own. My attention kept being drawn to it. In one of his battles with terrorists, Cage's character gets tortured. He gets a cut in his ear. After twenty years the cut is still there and looks very awkward. At some point I swear I could see the edges of the cut move together and mouth some words to Cage. After rewinding I thought I faintly heard these words: "Nicolas, get out of here, you are too good for this. Save your career before its too late!"
