  • Yeah, there are flaws and lots of them--but the film is still a wild ride worth taking.

    February 10, 2021 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • A hot mess of throwback tropes, leaning heavily on an Escape from New York setup and evocative of Mad Max's junkyard fashions and Terry Gilliam's multidimensional fever dreams...it's all too much.

    February 10, 2021 | Full Review…
  • It is an excellent introduction to the director for anyone who hasn't dipped into his filmography. And Cage? It's another solid, snarling turn from the hardest working action man in Hollywood.

    February 3, 2021 | Full Review…
  • Shuffling across styles and oddball cultural references, "Prisoners" is a cheeky picture whose melodramatic grandeur is undercut by the story's knowing preposterousness.

    February 3, 2021 | Full Review…
  • It's bonkers. It's brilliant. It's Nicolas Cage in all his give-no-fucks glory.

    February 2, 2021 | Full Review…
  • The film is a profound disappointment in part because it feels so overdetermined to live up to Sion Sono and Nicholas Cage's respective brands.

    February 2, 2021 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
