Rage Reviews

Painstakingly generic, one only wishes it would at least reach the heights of emotion its succinct title promises, yet every turn, and even a forlornly tacky plot twist, play out like some inevitable, flaccid Ferris Wheel of schlock.

Would not have been saved by more of those over-the-top Cage moments, but it would have helped.

Generally awful and without redeeming qualities...
May 23, 2017
Sadly, Rage is generally a slog and it's not Cage's fault.
September 21, 2014
Cage's investigative method is to shoot first, ask questions later, so it's no wonder his lines of inquiry run into dead ends.
September 19, 2014
It feels like the dynamic, volatile actor is on auto-pilot, and the rest of the movie doesn't do much to back him up.
August 23, 2014
Tired, lazy, incongruous, shocking and hilarious in all the wrong places, "Rage" is destined for the graveyard television slot, squeezed between infomercials for mops. Perhaps there is a good drinking game in here somewhere.
July 25, 2014
Even the stylish fight sequences don't have much of an impact because the film takes itself way too seriously.
July 22, 2014
Judging from the lack of quality on the screen, perhaps it's time for Cage, Glover, and Stormare to throw in the towel.
July 22, 2014
It's sobering conclusions are heartfelt, but ultimately unearned.
July 21, 2014
Not terrible enough to work up enough emotion to make you mad, just once again frustrate you with the knowledge that you wasted time giving Cage yet another chance to disappoint you.
July 17, 2014
Sporadically hilariously awful, but mostly cheap, amateurish and so distasteful it borders on the vile. Poor Nicolas Cage and his foundering career.
July 14, 2014
Piles on the foreign accents and paint-by-numbers brutality, all served up with a grim, operatic self-seriousness that gives Cage's antihero little room to maneuver.
July 11, 2014
... a pulp-y, no-nonsense vigilante number that sounds like it was scripted by a computer program ... Say what you will about Cage, he gives the viewer his money's worth in tics and mad-dog froth.
July 11, 2014
Cage may not always be easy on the eyes, but at his best, you can't turn away from him, because you never really know what he'll do next. But here, the actor plays it drab and dour.
July 11, 2014
There isn't an original frame or line of dialogue in Rage.
July 11, 2014
A dull, lifeless thing even in spite of its efforts, old-school grindhouse picture-style, to put an exploitation-nihilist spin on the dad-with-action-movie-skills-on-the-rampage boilerplate ...
July 10, 2014
It's hard to say this is the worst film Nicolas Cage has ever made - there are just too many contenders to choose from. But it's near the bottom.
July 10, 2014
Rage is so full of clich, convention and just plain odd narrative choices that it can't get out of its own way.
July 10, 2014
The latest in a parade of cheesy, derivative action-thrillers that erstwhile A-list actor Nicolas Cage has recently starred in, presumably as a quick cash grab.
