Season of the Witch
Very predictable, felt like a thousand other movies.
This was a film that doesn't try to be new or different or god it tries to be entertaining adn it is. The acting is pretty good with Claire Foy as the standout and Nicholas Cage was his usual bland self but what are you going to do. The director Dominic Sena creates a suspensful film, even though it utilises several scenes that have been done before in better films and he adds a spark to them. The film is corny and campy adn jsut plain fun for a saturday afternoon.
Good movie, unpredictable !
Sort fell apart half way through!
Worst movie Nick has starred in.
I sat down for some action packed fun with a storyline.
It never happened, 1 star for the setting of the movie and one for Nick and his co star.
This movie looks like it has been written in an afternoon while waiting for paint to dry.
I hope his next one will be more of the old Nick.
If I could I would rate it 3.5. It was a good movie - great style, but just didn't quite get there.
Nicolas Cage. Magic. Blockbuster. A familiar combination, since Dominic Sena's Season of the Witch hits theaters only a few months after The Sorcerer's Apprentice (whose producer Jerry Bruckheimer, in the oddest of coincidences, worked with both star and director on Gone in 60 Seconds, eleven years back). While the latter was a by-numbers Disney effort (plenty of effects, a general lack of heart), Sena's latest work manages to also be quite a bit boring and occasionally ludicrous.
This time, Cage doesn't play a magician, but a crusader who, having witnessed too much bloodshed, runs off to Europe with his fellow soldier and best friend (Ron Perlman). They discover a plague-ridden landscape
Excellent first fifteen minutes...then it had some good action, but wasn't amazing.
