Violent and uneven.

Is redemption possible for this bad lieutenant? At one point, he orders that a dead man be shot again because "his soul is still dancing." If you find God in that line, then welcome to your movie heaven.

I'd rather rot in a New Orleans jail than watch it again. And yet its epiphanies are outrageously sharp, it is beautifully shot by cinematographer Peter Zeitlinger and the ending is a joy.

For me, Ferrara and Keitel will always be the bad lieutenant, but Werner Herzog is probably the only director qualified to take this on, and his bizarre reboot has a fascination all of its own.

Cage does bad so good. Hereâ(TM)s hoping he keeps the crazy coming.
May 20, 2010
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.

Cage, who usually goes gonzo with gusto, underplays this monster. That spoils the fun.

Nicolas Cage is out of his mind in The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call -- New Orleans. And it's wonderful to see.
November 29, 2009
Nicolas Cage is so gleefully over-the-top as the troubled cop of the title that you will either be repulsed or fascinated by his performance and, since it lives or dies by it, the movie itself.
November 25, 2009
Like the late Klaus Kinski, who so often played crazies in Herzog's earlier movies, Cage is in your face all the way. Laughing maniacally, lying with no sign of a conscience, he pushes the character's frequent tantrums beyond over-the-top.
November 24, 2009
Frankly, the story isn't remotely as interesting as Cage. Nothing is.
November 24, 2009
A one-of-a-kind experience that boasts a twice-in-a-lifetime performance from Nicolas Cage.
November 24, 2009
Despite his strangely receding hairline, bug-eyed demeanor and hunchback stance, Cage somehow avoids making this police lieutenant a caricature.
November 23, 2009
Herzog, who seems to be drawing on the audience's affection for him as an inspired madman, may not care to tell a story straight anymore.
November 20, 2009
Like the water snake that slithers by during the opening credits or the baby crocodile from whose point of view we observe one roadside scene, this movie is a freaky little swamp thing.
November 20, 2009
The film is an exasperating bore.
November 20, 2009
Making a bad movie this good is harder than it looks.
