We all know that the film has a good cast that includes Ryan Reynolds and Emma Stone, but Nic Cage is the actual hero of the film. For the past few years almost all of Cage's films were poorly received by the critics as well as the audience. You can expect 'The Croods to be met with a bad welcome from the critics because it has Cage in it, that is a possible prediction. A 60-70% on the tomato meter during the opening time cannot be considered as a good sign for any film.
Nicholas Cage was once considered one of the best performance oriented actors in America, then he turned to action films and proved his might there as well, but now he only makes trash and onscreen pornography[as in case of Drive Angry(2011)]. Do you believe that if 'The Croods' end up being a commercial and critical hit, it would bring about any change in the troubled career of Nic Cage?
Also, I am no Cage fan.
