Season of the Witch Reviews

After a while, the movie tires of the witch business and trots out a plot twist that permits the effects department to spend money.

Director Dominic Sena sets a quick pace; the dull moments are brightened by the unexpectedly likable team of Cage and Perlman.

Cage is effective as a falling down drunk in Las Vegas or a treasure hunter navigating goofy road trips but not as a disillusioned champion of the Church going one-on-one with a demon. Steven Seagal would have been more believable.

It's Centurion Deux without the second-coming-of-Carpenter pretense, though you still wish the trashiness were more distinctive.

Cage alternates between leaden line readings and thunderous outbursts, making his accomplished costars Ulrich Thomsen and Stephen Campbell Moore look even better. But the movie's worst aspect is the CGI, which packs no scares whatsoever.

Even the most dedicated of Nicolas Cage's fans will find little to enjoy about the historical-fantasy-action romp Season of the Witch.

The film is not altogether dreadful, although it's far from good. And that's not good. Classic stinkeroos are rarer than masterpieces, and we all need a laugh now and then, even if the laughs are inadvertent.

Season of the Witch is as bloodless as a starved vampire. Instead of a review, it deserves a stake in the heart.

Rather than elevating this wanna-be Hammer horror flick, Cage somehow lowers its quality.

A mishmash of horror and history genres that's not as bad as its trailers but ultimately is dragged down by, of all things, its star.

Really, at its worst, the whole thing's a little bit like "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" - minus the jokes.

Ever since Bergman's "The Virgin Spring" was remade as "Last House on the Left," his work has suggested a rich mine for homage.

It's got videogame-from-hell F/X, plus jousting, plus Cage in tangled long hair he seems to have mistakenly put in the washing machine.

Cage's old pal Dominic Sena is a decade removed from their "Gone in 60 Seconds" directing glory, and he gets nothing out of this script that isn't pure hokum.

A CGI freakout at the finale can't save this mundane medieval thriller about witches, devils and disillusioned knights.

Season of the Witch is a fine example of a film that would've been great fun if only its creators had a sense of humor about the wild brew of absurdity they had percolating.

Directed by the perennially hollow Dominic Sena from a script by Bragi Schut, "Season of the Witch" is all seams. It never balances out its competing desires...

Cage plods through the story with a stiffly restrained, exaggeratedly earnest performance that makes him look like the most awkward amateur in the local Society For Creative Anachronism troupe.

Did either Cage or Sena even bother reading Bragi F. Schut's patchwork script, before adjusting the wig, flicking on the camera and cashing the pay cheques?

Season of the Witch begins in a Crusade taking place after the Crusades, in a 14th Century for Dummies about as immersive and real as the Ohio State Renaissance Festival.

It takes place during the 14th century, but everyone speaks in contemporary language, which might have been acceptable if the dialogue were clever or intelligent or funny or, you know, good.

Off the top of my head, I'm guessing that "Season of the Witch" claims a place in the top five all-time bizarre and pointless homages to art cinema.

It's creaky, predictable and frequently idiotic. But for a tipsy Saturday night, this should tick all the right boxes.
