Acting / Characters
Nicolas Cage is sensational as a CIA agent hell-bent on bringing a terrorist to justice. However he is dealt a major blow following a diagnosis of frontal dementia. He plays this brilliantly and his performance really makes the film.
Backing up Cage is Anton Yelchin as Milton Schultz a CIA operative. He see’s Cage’s character as a mentor and the two work well together. Yelchin has a strange quiet way about him which actually works extremely well.
