What a cool idea with the perfect actor

To give you insight into my relationship with Nicolas Cage, I will quote the end of my review for his movie Jiu Jitsu, which I gave 1 star:

"This is just a straight-garbage movie. Damn you Nick Cage!

... I wonder what movie of his I'll watch next."

I've been a fan of his for so long. I think he's very talented and has a certain crazy appeal that you don't see from other actors. And I keep watching most of his movies even as they plummet in quality and rarely make it to cinemas. He still makes them entertaining, even if they are awful. This is a huge contrast to other former A-list actors who have gone down the same path but with unwatchable movies. Like fellow Face/Off star John Travolta or Bruce Willis (we will miss you!).

So when they decide to make a movie that's essentially all about Nick Cage, of course I'm 100% in. And I have to say, this is his best movie in years. It's levels above the quality of his recent direct-to-video movies and is definitely cinema-worthy.

I laughed a lot. A couple parts had me crying from laughter. And when I wasn't laughing I was generally amused. It felt so refreshing to laugh with his movie rather than at it. And with the lack of comedy movies lately, this came at a perfect time.

Other than the comedy, this is a mostly well-made movie with a story and characters that kept me invested. I love the meta aspect. Nick Cage's performance in this role is perfect. It has a good supporting cast with the standout being Pedro Pascal. He's so likeable and has great chemistry with Nick Cage. Their relationship drives the movie. Pedro Pascal is a star.

I had a great time with this movie. I think most will enjoy it, but the ones who will appreciate it the most are the fans who are familiar with his work. (1 viewing, early screening 4/13/2022)

My favorite Nick Cage movies:

(1) Face/Off

(2) Kick-Ass

(3) Matchstick Men

(4) The Rock

(5) Con Air

(6) National Treasure

(7) The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

(8) Next

(9) Knowing

(10) Lord of War

I didn't know if I should count Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse since his role is so small, but it would be behind Matchstick Men.

I did not expect that!!!

It's fair to say I haven't always been the biggest fan of Nicholas Cage, but it's not the talent, it's often the film choices, similar to Michael Cain, he really has made some shockers. What this film does however is poke a little fun at his past, it's tongue in cheek, but it's a cracking movie.

It's funny, it's energetic, it zips along, there isn't a single dull moment here, you don't need to be a fan or a critic, this movie is just really worth your time.

Loaded with irony, it's plain to see that Cage has a sense of humour, this really is a winner for him.

It wasn't what I was expected, but I am so glad I went to see it, I'd really recommend it. 9/10.

Made me appreciate Nicolas Cage even more

This movie is a blast of entertainment a perfect spoof of Nicolas playing himself with great references, wackiness, and brilliant surprises! A treat for fans or not a The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent is a well constructed delightful experience. I love how everything plays out if I could be the equivalent of Pedro Pascals character I definitely would I'm a huge fan of Nicolas's films and this one is a ultimate fun! The action is badass, dialogue is well written and hilarious the bulk of the duration.

Typical comment - I watch movie. I hate movie. I am smart. You are not. Worship me as your film God!!! Either way, One man who has the life of Cage, who has went from major film draw, to a B movie joke, back to a well respected actor, playing ALL OF THOSE characters in ONE movie deserves some major award, Some supreme honor in the way Eisenhower wasn't just a military man, but the greatest military man that has ever existed up to this point of time.....

Love him or hate him, the man knows how to deliver an entertaining performance. I prefer Nic Cage's all out wacky antics than whatever today's mainstream actors like The Rock and Reynolds are doing. The Pascal/Cage chemistry was something else man, I was half expecting them to furiously makeout lmao.

I saw this movie, after reading all these negative comments! But what a surprise, this was actually turns out of a very good movie! Not a typical Nick Cage movie for sure. But this is one of the best of his movies in a very long time. Very funny and really enjoyable! You should watch with an open mind, forget all the comments on the film. You will enjoy it for sure! Hope Nick makes such similar movies!
