I love this movie because every character has his or her differences for instance, Nicolas Cage he bench presses strippers as a way to work out. Samuel L. Jackson gets shot on his cheek by the drunken trucker that caused everything to go wrong, now he has tears running down his face and cant stay in the sun. David Caruso is just awsome.
Everyone agrees that the casting was marque. And that it has great source material. But I feel it gets a bum rap with critics. And Nicolas Cage was exactly what the film needed. I thought so then and I think so now. Color, flash, and style. Something out of the ordinary to give it some desperately needed weight. And Cage makes weight. Literally. That is the strongest look I had seen since Stallone did "First Blood, Part II". Cage is a physical bull and it's impressive. I wouldn't have recognized him if I hadn't seen the trailer with his name on it beforehand. If you never saw this, see it. For no other reason than to be scared of Nic Cage. I was.
Any fan of David Caruso (NYPD Blue; CSI: Miami) should add this movie to their collection. Caruso didn't always get the support he should have in his movies. He has excellent range and character depth. This movie also showcases Nicholas Cage in an excellent role. The plot keeps you guessing with its twist and turns. If you like crime drama, this is the movie for you.
thank you for asking this was a great movie! i love movies with nicholas cage! he is a great actor!i think the cousin kind of got what was coming!
bought this because nicolas cage is in it. may have been a smaller part, but he delivered the goods. the other actors did a fine job too. good story line, poor guy stuck between law enforcement and some very bad men. loved the ending.
