Lord of War is such a criminally underrated, endlessly quotable film. The writing is just so tight. Insanely tight. The story admittedly doesn't have enough emotional heft to keep itself afloat, and suffers from the same problem that War Dogs did: the main character never seem to change, grow, or learn anything. But (like War Dogs) it's still completely engaging from beginning to end.
Any other fans?
I do like this movie, and Cage does become that role quite well. I say this as someone that currently uses the question, "Is Nic cage in this movie?" to determine if it will be viewed. A "yes" means abort.
Raising Arizona, Face Off, Leaving Las Vegas, Lord of war, and a guilty pleasure with The Rock are for me.
That being said *Billy Corgan power riff*
In spite of that praise, I am still not a fan of Nic Cage.
