Nicolas Cage loves movies with ridiculously generic titles – Trespass, Drive Angry, Stolen, Outcast – and now he’s got another one: Rage. And like the others, the trailer lets us know we’re in thriller territory.
In the film, ‘When the Russian mob kidnaps the daughter of a reformed criminal, he rounds up his old crew and seeks his own brand of justice.’
So yes, it’s a incredibly generic plot too.
It just makes you wonder, does nobody offer Cage interesting, challenging roles anymore, or do they simply not pay enough? Oh well, let’s just hope Rage is fun.
In the US the film will be available On Demand on June 10th and in cinemas on July 11th.
