In this action-packed comedy, Nicolas Cage plays Nick Cage, channeling his iconic characters as he’s caught between a superfan (Pedro Pascal) and a CIA agent (Tiffany Haddish) (IMDB).
I honestly thought at the outset this film was going to be another stupid “guy” film. Boy was I wrong. Sure, it takes a while to kick in but once it does this film is absolutely brilliant on all levels. This film is excellently written and is incredibly nuanced. Cage and Pascal work extremely well together. This role for Pascal is by far my favorite behind The Mandalorian. By the way, if you haven’t seen The Mandalorian series you should seriously look into it because it is fantastic.
Tiffany Haddish as Vivan and Neil Patrick Harris as Richard Fink should also be mentioned because they give great performances and add to the depth of this movie. This film is excellently written, acted and is visually striking. If you are looking form something quirky, well-written and extremely funny than this is the film you should see.
