Not exactly a horror movie per se, but an action film with horror elements. Still, I’m going to allow it since it is so much damn fun.
Nicholas Cage escapes from Hell to kill the cult leader who has tricked his daughter into joining his ranks so he can sacrifice her unborn child. Meanwhile, Hell’s accountant, the always great William Fichtner, heads to Earth to bring Cage back. A young girl, the lovely Amber Heard, joins Cage to help him get his daughter.
This is one of those movies I can’t believe exists, but I’m glad it does. It has the feel of a 70s exploitation film with the visuals of today. If this movie came out back then, it would have been adored.
Everything in this movie is dialed to 11. Cage is clearly having a blast, and aside from some bad CGI during a car chase, the movie looks great. The story moves along at a brisk pace, and really, it has a little something for everyone. Car chases, gunfights, explosions, demons, nudity, gratuitous violence, and a good dose of comedy.
If you are looking for a movie where you can just sit back and be entertained, I can’t recommend this one enough.
