NeilDas' Rating of Adaptation

Neil's Review of Adaptation

4 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes


Adaptation is one of the few Nicolas Cage movies that is worth seeing. Not only is his performance outstanding and full of depth (for once), but his character and the movie overall were, for the most part, brilliantly and ironically written. Kudos to the original Charlie Kaufman.

The supporting roles by Meryl Streep and Chris Cooper were both funny while while also three-dimensional.

Both the cinematography and musical score were great.

My only complaint about the movie is for a few unpleasant and random scenes that could've been done differently.

Otherwise, I was pleasantly surprised by Nic Cage overall. I wish he starred in more movies like this.
