Cage does bad so good. Hereâ(TM)s hoping he keeps the crazy coming.

| Original Score: 3/5

May 20, 2010

Cage and Herzog have created a superbly memorable lead character, and if the plot itself is curiously unmemorable, certain images will stay with you to the grave...

In fusing European experimentalism and Hollywood boldness, Herzog has created a genuine oddity, a furious and unforgettable hybrid which may well prove to be 2010's most purely enjoyable moviegoing experience.

Birmingham Post

As his 1996 Oscar for Leaving Las Vegas proved, Nicolas Cage is at his best when sailing close to the edge with substance abuse, though some viewers will baulk when he takes out his misdirected anger on a defenceless old lady.

Herzog has unique flair, but it's out of synch with the genre. As for Cage, he is a flailing madman and the only polite thing to do is look away.

It's every cop show cliché reflected in a hall of mirrors -- wholly indecent fun.

Financial Times

As always with Herzog, the more eccentric scenes have an eerie, hilarious mastery. And only someone with the metaphysical élan of Herzog could pull off a film noir that takes place mostly in fierce sunlight.

Viewers will fall into two camps -- those who think it's a mentally unstable mess, and those who think it's a work of insane genius. Can't it be both?

Nicolas Cage gives one of the best performances of his career in this borderline insane film...

Chris Prince
Sky Movies

Despite ... minor gripes, this is Cage's best film in years, an anarchic gumbo of subverted cop thriller clichés and surreal set-pieces that's destined to become a cult classic.

Uncut Magazine [UK]

Certainly, it's not a stretch to suggest that Herzog has in Cage found his most simpático lead since the great Klaus Kinski.

Iguanas aside, Cage's performance is the film's centerpiece. He starts at over the top and climbs ever higher...

Somehow this is fun -- a result of a unique synergy between Cage and Herzog.

This is the perverted delirious Bad Lieutenant to see.

Fan The Fire

There is really no way to describe the playfulness and exquisite timing of the comedy in this film. It is partially Herzog's zany artistry, and partly Cage's masterful control of facial expressions and comic timing.

It really is a jungle out there, and Nicolas Cage delivers a mesmerizingly unhinged performance as Herzogian madman..

...a B movie worth seeing, but there are times the weirdness seems forced and the only thing that feels authentic is the suggestion that Cage might be more than a little mad.

Moving Pictures Magazine

Centered on a detective on the wrong side of the law, the film is manic its execution of plot, performance and photography.

A tragedy replayed as farce, and probably the funniest film I've seen all year.

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

Although it shares a title and a certain seedy charm with Abel Ferrara's 1992 "Bad Lieutenant," this remake really marches to the beat of its own, jittery, crack-addicted drummer.
