Whatever happened to Nic Cage...
22 September 2015 | by (Malta) – See all my reviews

Back in the 90's, Nicolas Cage was one of my favorite actors. The Rock, Con Air, Face/Off, Leaving Las Vegas. Now, I just can't understand what he's doing. This has got to be one of his worst movies I have ever seen. I gave it 4 stars as the acting is OK. I enjoyed The Wicker Man much more than this! I don't know which was worse, this or The Runner. The last Nic Cage movie I enjoyed was Dying Of The Light which was quite good.

I wish Nic Cage steps back up to what he does best because the truth is he's not a bad actor.

Not worth the watch.
