Oh Mr Cage you've done it again. I have no idea what Nicolas Cage's agent is smoking, but it must be strong stuff. I'm starting to think I was mistaken about Cage retaining his AAA star status but still doing independent/art films and think he might just have fallen from grace after all.
Yet another straight to DVD distinctly average thriller see's Cage play a man who alongside his wife has bought a motel. However things gradually start to seem amiss, as if something just isn't quite right about the place.
Also starring Robin "Prison Break" Tunney and Marc "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" Blucas it at least has a competent cast. I've always disliked Blucas but even he did a good job here so at least the movie has that going for it.
I was frustrated by the tone, frequently it has a real 1980's vibe about it but that comes and goes which seems like a weird call. The pacing is flawed, the script is hit and miss and nothing about Looking Glass exactly flows.
Points for effort certainly but the whole thing comes across rushed. If Cage wants to return to his former spot in Hollywood he needs to turn his back on movies like this once and for all.
