I think Cage is a shoe-in for Worst Actor this year. He's just begging for it. The only real contender that can top him is Adam Sandler.

This is what I'm talking about when it comes to overpaid celebrities

Time to review this: 
 
The good: 
 
William Fitchner: I know that some people here didn't like his performance, but, for me, he was the highlight of the movie. The scene where he plows done the police barricade was hilarious. 
 
Amber Heard: She gave a credible performance and she's hot as hell! 
 
The sex-scene shoot-out: I know that there's a similar scene in Shoot 'Em Up, but it's well-used here. This is probably the non-William Fitchner highlight. 
 
The bad:
 
Nicolas Cage: While he's better here than he was in Season Of The Witch, that's not saying much.
 
Billy Burke: While he's better here than he was in Red Riding Hood, that's not saying much.
 
The 3D: It's better than Pirates, but not as good as Trannies 3.
 
The ugly:
 
Nicolas Cage's hair: I couldn't think of anything really ugly about the movie, so I chose his hair. If we keep Worst Screen Couple, it should be "Nicolas Cage and EITHER his hellish hair-piece (Drive Angry) OR his trespassing toupee (Trespass) OR his wiccan wig (Season Of The Witch).
 
Not much to say to wrap it up. It's kind of fun to watch. Grade B-.

I just saw it,but I won't review it.

It's a bad sign in a movie when Amber Heard*** gives the best performance(jokes aside,she was decent).I know,you all expect to know about Nicolas Cage*****.He's not really bad as he is uninspired.But considering he has 3 other movies this year,and because of his situation he's most likely going to be uninspired in those as well,so I wouldn't be totally against a nomination for him.But he can't be alone.His uninspiration is nothing compared to William Fichtner's* utter lack of desire to be in this movie.Charlotte Ross's** screentime was short,but it was enough to consider her.Despite his annoying as hell(no pun intended)accent,Billy Burke**** wasn't bad.

I got that the movie was made as a grindhouse explotation movie on purpose,which is why I enjoyed the action,but it got tedious after a while.It felt like they just discovered slow motion,so they couldn't come up with something cooler.The effects were bad,and the plot dragged on too much.I mean,why couldn't it last 70 minutes?

I give this 4/10.


For your consideration:
-Supp. Actor*/Actress**...yes.
-Picture,Actress***,Supp. Actor again****,Couple(the 2 leads)...no.
-Actor*****,Director,Screenplay and Misuse Of 3D(I saw it on 2D,but the things going to the screen was annoying)...maybe.

It's really bad that people begin to love actors only after they've played cool roles.
But it doesn't meen that all their next roles will be epic as well. And here is one of the examples Confused

What ever happens to Cage he will do to himself.  He don't need any help from us. :)

I do not think people really believe this kind of looting actually exists...

I just saw this. It kind of entertained me, even though it was nothing more than an over-the-top ultra-violent exploitation flick...

I'm pretty sure Cage would show up at the awards show, if only so he could take the award and pawn it off or sell it on eBay, because he needs all the money he can get!

If we only have those choices...Well,we all know his financial situation.He's clearly aware when he makes this movies that they won't be masterpieces.The same can be said about Berry,Bullock and Green.A lot of people make bad movies and still think they're good.But admitting you made a bad movie doesn't mean you'll accept the Razzie.Some people don't accept not because they don't think they deserve it,but because they don't take the Razzies seriously.

If Nicolas Cage wins next year's Worst Actor Razzie (if he's still fresh on voters' minds and been nominated), what do you think he'll do?
 
Do you think he will:
 
a) Do what Tom Green, Halle Berry, Sandra Bullock and various others have done before him and attend the ceremony to collect his Razzie in person (as well as bring along his Best Actor Oscar from 1995). 
 
or:
 
b) Do what everyone else nominated does and boycote the ceremony.
You see in this filmmaking world there's two types of people my friend. Those with the knowledge of film and those who think they do but really don't.

Exactly. Like last year, between "Shutter Island" and "Inception", Leonardo Decaprio was 2010's most bankable star. I highly doubt Cage's movies will gross enough to call him one of the 10 most bankable stars of 2011.

BHB asked if Cage was The Least Bankable Star of 2011. We can't know that until the year is over. As for how "bankable" Cage is in general: 
 
Lifetime Gross Total(48):$2,127,550,496 
Average:$44,323,969 
Opening Gross Average(35):$14,609,674

"Camp" usually does mean "bad," but in a cheesy, humorous, so-bad-it's-good kind of way. "Cult" just means that a movie grew a fan base over time...or that one man's trash is another man's treasure.
