Nicolas Cage plays a reformed mobster of sorts in this action thriller. In the old days, he was like a mob hit man or something but now he's a "clean" business man with a checkered past who works hand in hand with the city and the Mayor. When Cage's daughter, hanging out with two friends, is kidnapped...it looks like someone from Cage's past is out for revenge. When she shows up floating in a ditch with a bullet in her head, well...Cage has the RAGE! Unlike John Wick, Cage's mob past worked in a group, so he assembles members of his old team to lock and load local mobsters, drug dealers, and like all Hollywood movies these days, ties with the Russian Mob. Cage and his team blow away folks, slaughter potential informants, and run rampant over useless cop Danny Glover, who knows all about Cage's past and keeps letting him good, even when he catches him at the scenes of crimes! Bizarre plot holes abound, but this movie kept my attention with Cage really going nuts in his RAGE mode. One guy he catches up to he shoots, stabs, chokes, screams at him, and even after he's long dead, he keeps kicking him and shooting him, screaming in torment at him...This is how I feel every month when the bills roll in, so...great cathartic sequence there! Anyway, there's loads of Hollywood chases and gunplay, the odd thing is the way the action scenes are editing- they seem to go into some bizarre strobe look or like every other frame has been cut, even for foot chases and fist fights- not sure what the deal is with that, but kind of distracting! There's a great twist at the end of the movie and I thought it worked well, kind of came out of left field and the end of the movie was quite satisfying, with Cage's own bloody past catching up with him and being the cause of everything after all---not really giving away anything major there. This movie works as a good action-thriller killer movie and kept my attention, and if you're a fan of Nicolas Cage,it's a must see. He's always wild and over the top in most of his action movies. Like a pint-sized JOHN WICK, really.
