Nicolas Cage and Peter Fonda worked together on 2007's "Ghost Rider." Cage acted as Johnny Blaze/Ghost Rider, who sold his soul to Fonda's character, Mephistopheles, in order to save his father from dying. See more »
In 5:30 minute of film they showed iPod Nano 7th Generation, which was officially launched on September 12, 2012. If they showed this movie to be of 2010 they shouldn't have used this version of iPod. See more »
Moulay Ismail, that Moroccan ruler, fathered 900 children with his concubines. 900 children. Genghis Khan, well, he made old Ismail look barren. One out of every 200 men on this planet has a direct line stretching back to that son of a bitch.

I don't know what the problem is with movies these days other than it seems that only fast paced, herky jerky camera work and shock value entertainment draws the masses in..... but this movie was very, very good and sadly, terribly overlooked. Maybe it was overlooked because Nic Cage isn't on the flavor of the month list anymore but it's a shame that it was totally ignored by the critics and audience both.
Cage did a wonderful job of playing a conflicted, somewhat tortured train wreck waiting to happen but good hearted politician who truly cares about the people he represents during the BP oil spill in the gulf. He delivers a truly human and well measured performance and you couldn't see the "acting" in his performance one iota. To me, that's a very good, if not great performance.
On a side note, I loved the music in the movie. Especially the Tom Waits song "Picture in a Frame".
Well done, Nicolas!
