Style / Direction
The films directed by Paco Cabezas whilst Andrzej Sekula is responsible for the cinematography. Its a well made and shot film that looks impressive.
Music / Audio Effects
The music is provided by Laurent Eyquem.
Acting / Characters
The casting is very good with the only weak parts being played by the teenagers. That said much of the focus is on Nicolas Cage and his buddies. Cage as usual is excellent making this one rollercoaster ride of emotions and action you won’t want to miss.
There’s even a role for the fabulous Danny Glover as the cop trying to help whilst knowing the Cage’s character is carrying out some horrific crimes in the name of justice.
