CON: Let's get this out of the way early - it stars Mr. Bangkok Ghost Wicker Man himself, Nic Cage.
PRO: I can't speak for Ghost Rider or Bangkok Dangerous, but The Wicker Man (and Bad Lieutenant, from what I hear) is hilarious, thanks largely in part to Nic Cage. When he goes really, really bad, that's good for us.
CON: The director and writer for this each have virtually nothing but (I'm assuming) awful horror movies on their resumes, shit like White Noise 2 and Jason X and Dracula 2000.
PRO: William Fichtner, aka one of the greatest character actors ever, co-stars.
UNDECIDED: The trailer and plot summaries for this film are wildly confusing and/or divergent. Watch the trailer and you can (possibly) surmise that some shit happened to Cage's character (or family) and that he's out for revenge. Like that Faster movie starring Dwayne Johnson. Read the plot summary, involving the devil and Cage's character escaping hell or something, and you might suffer from Ghost Rider night terrors.
CON: It looks fucking terrible.
PRO: Amber Heard co-stars. I've seen Heard in The Joneses, Zombieland, and Pineapple Express, to name a few. She's attractive...
CON: ...but apparently either charisma-free or not attractive enough or too attractive. I'm really not sure - all I know is that she's wildly unmemorable, since I've even seen her naked (in The Joneses) and still had to look her up to jog my brain as to who she was.
PRO: Fichtner's character name is "The Accountant," which means he must be the (or a) bad guy. This is music to my ears.
CON: Cage's character's name is "Milton." Ugh. Didn't we cover the obviousness of a character named Milton in a film about hell/the devil in The Devil's Advocate?
PRO: David Morse co-stars. 'Nuff said.
CON: It's a live-action film being released in 3D. 'Cause those are always good.
Minor, minor PRO: Pruitt Taylor-Vince co-stars. He's a decent character actor with a kick ass lazy eye.
That's all I got. The final tally?
* 5.25 PRO
* 6 CON
* 1 UNDECIDED
A video viewing it shall be!
