The Wicker Man (2006) - Review

There is almost nothing to say about this movie.  It is horrible in just about every conceivable way, drags on like a bad prog album and is pretty irredeemably boring for 90% of its runtime.  No, the movie is garbage.  I'm here to talk about the star.  Yes, good ol' Nic Cage, himself.

The guy can be a good actor when he wants to be.  Leaving Las Vegas, Face Off, The Rock, Adaptation... he can do a lot of genres and he can do them well.  He's funny, but also a good dramatic actor because he possesses a strange sense of realness to him.  Now obviously he flat out doesn't care a lot of the time, and that's when we get stuff like Ghost Rider and this.  Watch the best-of clips of this movie on Youtube or something, then go watch a Cage movie that is worth watching.  My personal suggestion is Vampire's Kiss.  But do not watch this whole movie.  I beg you.
