The Trust (2016)
Believe it or not, kiddies, it took until April for us to get our first Nicolas Cage movie of 2016 (but according to IMDb, we have four more to look forward to by the end of the year). However, if the rest of 2016 brings us films like Alex and Benjamin Brewer's The Trust, then this is going to be a banner Nicky year indeed! Because The Trust isn't just a stylish and clever action/crime film, but it's a true return to form for the Nicolas Cage that many of us fell in love with via movies like Raising Arizona, Wild at Heart, and Red Rock West.
So join me as take a road trip back to Vegas with Nic that is so fantastic, it helped me overcome my Frodophobia for an hour and a half!
The Story: Jim Stone (Cage) and David Waters (Elijah Wood) are cops, but only in the technical sense, since they both spend most of their time in the evidence lock-up. But when Jim notices that a drug dealer has been bailed out with a huge sum of cash, he gets suspicious, and convinces David to help him suss out just where someone could be hiding so money out of the view of police. After a few hilariously awkward stakeouts, Jim and David discover an expertly hidden vault in a nondescript apartment building. But what they find inside the vault... well, that could be a lot more than they bargained for.
|Only for the man on the right, would I tolerate the pod person on the left.|
|Cage's facial hair is DEFINITELY 60s-esque.|
|The film started at a NCPS Score of 3... But it didn't stay there for long.|
|I still don't like him, but the sunglasses lessen my Frodophobia.|
Revenge Honey Rating: 5 Full-Blown Cages out of 5
