I wasn't expecting so much from a Nicolas Cage film. If he will keep on making movies like this, well, his career might be on the racks. Nicolas Cage, in fact, is a good actor. The movies he is making is where all things go wrong. I wouldn't say that the story was cliche, but I also wouldn't say that it was original. What it lacked the most was substance. There were a few interesting twists, but that's all. A couple of whores won't buy my two thumbs up. I found this movie so "loud".
Why did I give it a low rating? I have watched a lot of films like this which are better. For me to say that it is good, it should stand out or be as good as the others which I liked. Yes, there are couple of scenes that will get you to watch it, but there were also scenes that seemed almost ludicrous. It's absolutely not good for children. Naked ladies and broken bodies were all over the place. But for grindhouse fans, you'll probably enjoy it somehow.
