I agree with much of what joebshmoe said, especially the part about more trimming needed (mostly stupid dialogue) – though I used to really like cage but now I’m sort of indifferent to him. The only part that I didn’t like about cage’s performance was when he was in the cell – specifically, the very last part of it.
I’m in the camp that has an enormous amount of dislike for Mr. Cage. How does he play the same f***ing character in EVERY movie? WTF? Perhaps I am too biased to give this a proper review…
Anyways, as for editing, audio and video this is great as always from CBB. I just think more drastic measures need to be taken to make this a thoroughly enjoyable movie, but obviously this is a very subjective element. Clearly a LOT of people like this movie.
CBB-ishness is a 5/5
entertainment is a 3/5
4/5 …and I can easily admit that if you LIKE nicholas cage this will EASILY be a 5/5 for you…
