Review: This movie is simply amazing! Cage did it again… A classic action-packed piracy movie that holds you in agony and delivers all kinds of emotions! Do you want bravery? Badass fight scenes? Stunts? Explosions? Cage’s acts? Romance? The trill of getting the bad guys out? The beautiful music? I can keep going forever… This movie has everything inside! It screams success with a cast like this after all … Nicolas Cage and John Malkovich gave amazing performances here. Rightfully, they are called the chameleons because they adapt to every kind of role. It is worth noting that Nicolas Cage was dedicated so much to the role that he traveled to Alabama to perfect this accent. Con Air (1997), Face/Off (1997), and The Rock (1996) are considered by many Nicolas Cage fans to be his “holy trinity” of action films.
