A good movie for me.
Not Cage's finest hour. It was more like a pantomime, 'he's behind you', can't reach the gun etc. Could have been a lot better.
Kind of a standard blueprint movie that deals with some dark themes. Doesn't offer anything new to the thriller genre. James Gandolfini had a great role in it as a villain. Nicholas Cage wasn't as irritating as normal, but he still can't act for shit.
Deals with themes of child porn, snuff videos, kidnapping and murder.
Love this movie. Very strong subject portrayed expertly by Nicholas Cage. Is a must have thriller for your collection.
Im Grunde bietet der Film doch alles um ein spannender Film über die Abgründe der menschlichen Sexualität und über Macht und Ohnmacht zu sein. Doch Joel Schumacher schafft es nicht, hier eine nachvollziehbare Struktur zu basteln.
Der Film wird über weite Strecken aber den Geruch des schlichten Voyeurismusses nicht. Dieses bewusste Grenzen überschreiten. Immer derber, brutaler und perverser. Es kann funktionieren, hier wirkt es schlicht wie ein Mittel zum Zweck.
Ein weiteres Ärgernis ist der Darbietung von Nicolas Cage. Irgendwie beitet er hier alles, weshalb man ihn hassen kann, allem voran, seine unglaublich nervige Mimik, die nur in "Face/Off" noch schlechter war, aber immerhin passte sie dort in die Geschichte.
This is a great film. I love PI type mystery movies.
It is like the flood gates opened dam. The plot is so asinine from the halfway onward and the 2nd half makes the 1st half outdone.
This film is watchable for the cast but is ultimately disappointing. A grisly story and lacking thrills and real tension
(Sighs) I don't know where I can go from this. The fact that it's disliked but find OK and directed by Joel Schumacher who is now doing a movie about snuff. OK. So that might be interesting for a mystery. Nicholas Cage is in the world of porn trying to verify the authenticity of a snuff film. Find the guys who made the film about a girl who got killed while filming it. Once again listening to commentry from Joel Schumacher explaining why he made this and said that he might get an NC-17 rating. Boy, oh, God, do I ever get bored of this movie? Well, yeah. It's not a bad film by all means but at least it's not awful. Could be interesting enough but it just isn't enough.
As far as Snuff movies - movies go, this was quite bad.
