Nicolas Cage is a huge fan of Neon Flesh (2010), Paco Cabezas' second movie and the one who caught the attention of Hollywood. According to Cabezas, Cage specially loved the performance of Macarena Gómez, and even tried to have her on Tokarev for a role, but Gómez's schedule didn't allow it. See more »

This movie is a poor man's version of Taken. The only redeemable aspect of the movie is the film score - which is seems lifted from The Thing (original version) - but is still enjoyable and builds the audience's anticipation of something in the offing. The movie is filled with regular crime clichés and stereo-types in reference to organized crime. No originality whatsoever. The movie ends with an anti- climax that's mind numbingly ridiculous - like the director wanted a quick ending after the movie dragged on and on for 70+ minutes.
Avoidable at all costs. Not worth a rental or even the $1 dvds you get at 7-11 or Dollar Tree.
Yes, Cage's luck hasn't changed. He's still on a string of doing crappy movies. Sigh!
