Season of the Witch

by wfgodbold

Academy Award winner Nic Cage (and partner in crime Ron Perlman!) don’t fail to entertain in this tale of two jaded crusaders looking for redemption…  One at the bottom of a bottle, and the other in the arms of the woman he loves (that’s completely false, but it would have made the jaded tale of two jaded soldiers and their journey even more jaded).

Who am I kidding?  This movie is exactly what the trailers make it look like; if you’re the kind of person who likes this kind of movie, then you should definitely go see it.  The 5% fresh rating doesn’t tell the whole story.

Some of the dialog is less than Oscar-quality (you expected otherwise?), and at points the plot plods along, but all in all, it’s an enjoyable movie.  The action is pretty good, and the actors do a good job with what they’re given; I haven’t seen as convincing a portrayal of Nic Cage since he played himself in The Sorcerer’s Apprentice (he didn’t do as well portraying himself in Kick-Ass, but he did do a perfect job playing Adam West)!
