In another great performance, Nicolas
Cage is captivating as an
obsessive-compulsive conman who gets
a surprise visit from his long lost
14-year-old daughter (Alison Lohman).
Director Ridley Scott, who normally
specializes in movies that go boom, has
put together a fantastic ensemble film
that also boasts the presence of Sam
Rockwell as Cages partner in crime.
Lohman, a 24-year-old actress, is
incredible as a character 10 years
younger than her age, and this should be
the film that gets her name remembered.
The movies big surprise may not amount
to much for many viewers, but the entire
film is very much worth watching thanks
to the performances of all involved. After
bombing out in John Woos
Windtalkers, Cage is on a roll with
this and last years Adaptation.
