Do you like Nick Cage? Do you like swords? Then why haven't you seen this movie?
In this stellar performance, Nick Cage delivers a knock-out, drop-dead, 10/10 performance. (I'm not even joking.) I don't think anyone could have portrayed his character closer to the actual man than Nick Cage. I've seen a lot of Nick Cage movies. A lot of "bad" ones. I liked them, but I like to get drunk and watch Nick Cage movies. It's somewhat of a pass time. This movie however is actually a movie I would recommend watching with real people. There's a certain awkwardness of the whole movie, the type of awkwardness you've come to expect from a movie with Nick Cage in it, but it actually fits this time. I mean hell I even felt bad for the lady (his girlfriend/chick from Reno 911). The whole situation is ridiculous and she just goes along with. Just like me watching a typical Nick Cage movie. But this isn't a typical Nick Cage movie. This is on National Treasure levels, and I'm serious when I say that. Now sure there's stuff that doesn't work. It kind of seems lazy that there's a narrator for example, but you should still see this movie. Everyone should see this movie. Half the time I'm asking myself what the hell is happening. And I look at the screen and I get the feeling Nick Cage is asking himself the same question. 10/10 would watch again.
