Drive Angry

Nic Cage doesn’t even need to try — and doesn’t — in this hard-R hoot


Action

Rod Lott
As aggressive as its name implies, "Drive Angry" is so deliriously over-the-top, I can't help but love it.

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

Nic Cage's flaming-skull superhero gets 'Crank'ed.


Action

Rod Lott
Too bad Nicolas Cage had to sell off his comic book collection a while back, because he could've used a refresher course on Ghost Rider, the Marvel Comics character he’s now played twice. I'm in the minority that found the 2007 original to be deeply flawed fun, and I think the same of this sequel, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, yet I still think about the lost opportunity both represent.

Seeking Justice

Just in the Nic of time.


Thriller

Rod Lott
With little exception (National Treasure, Kick-Ass, about one minute of Grindhouse), there’s no denying that Nicolas Cage has spent the better part of the past decade in a career slump. Witness such critically lambasted underperformers as The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Season of the Witch, Bangkok Dangerous and, most recently, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance.
