I liked the first half more than the second but if you’re a Cage fan, you’re gonna watch it regardless.

What an awesome film. Very entertaining and highly recommend viewing. Rented through Redbox DVD and best $1.99 spent in awhile. Must see!

Very tough to get over Cage playing himself in this movie.

The best part was when they took some LSD and drove into town. Everything else was pretty boring and uneventful. Something about CIA and drug lords or something. The plot was nothing we haven’t seen a billion times already. I couldn’t finish it. I bet Nicolas Cage really likes this movie. It’s an homage to his entire life as an actor and how it affects his personal life. But who else really cares?

This film was sooooooo enjoyable. Hilarious. Great story. Great character chemistry. A true modern day classic. Loved it. Will def watch again.

Loved this, nic cage is back. A testament to his willingness to experiment.

I don’t understand the ridiculous compulsion these days to include so many F-bombs. It’s like each main actor wanted to outdo the next for the number of times they were able to use the word. Absolute Idiocracy of writers; what is the appeal writers? Maybe invest in a thesaurus to find better ways to articulate an idea. If it didn’t have a decent story, I would have given it one-star.

Glad I did not see this in the theater, it did have its funny moments but it was for sure not a normal Cage movie. Bought this movie but probably will not be one I watch multiple times.

Good film, fun and entertaining.

The acting is superb, the story is tight and takes you thru all of the emotions. Beautiful setting, great music, very tastefully done. Nicolas Cage deserves an award IMO for this film. When comparing this movie to others in the last decade you can see it sets itself apart. Great film, well directed, a pure comedic joy!!

I saw the previews thought it was going to be a great movie. Found myself fast forwarding through the movie. Too much of this to be that to be anything. Huge dissapointment.

Not impressedddd 2022-06-12
So much fun to watch

GameKing Reviews 2022-06-12
It’s good to see a Nick Cage come back movie, not that he went anywhere. … yea, let’s face it, actors like Nicholas Cage and Bruce Willis, former big A-listers, have been proving lately, that Hollywood is as unforgiving as the American voter. In this mid and post pandemic world, “block buster” has taken on a whole new meaning. The most honest line in this movie is when Nick Cage says that unless one makes a Marvel or Star Wars movie, it can be very hard to draw a crowd (or something to that effect). So True!… I digress. This movie was a welcome surprise. Pedro Pascal and Nicholas Cage onscreen chemistry/bromance(???) was exceptional from the introduction. The film manages to showcase what super star Nicholas Cage once was, while simultaneously minimizing (and perhaps even explaining) the horrible movies he has made over the last several years. It’s important to remember the film is purely fictional, though may not feel it, and thus somehow offers the viewer a fabricated explanation of the cinema swill Cage has been cast in. The film is entertaining, with enough action and humor to keep the viewer engaged. Every moment Pascal and Cage share the screen, is pure gold, and the scenes involving their LSD trip, and shoe-swapping, still manage to bring boisterous laughs. The plot is a bit unclear in the intro, but quickly takes shape, and while the film will certainly not draw the crowd of a Marvel or Star Wars movie, it’s also not meant to. It’s a worthwhile movie with a strong main cast, excluding Lily Sheen of course, (further proof that Hollywood still prefers semi famous parents in place of talent). The supporting cast is good as well, and it’s nice to see Sharon Horgan again since her exceptional performance in the Prime Original series ‘Catastrophe’. As always, Tiffany Haddish is over the top and once again seems out of place in yet another of her movies, but other supporting actors like Neil Patrick Harris, more than make up for Haddish’s inadequacy. The film is for anyone remembering the era in which the mere mention of Nicholas Cage in a movie meant blockbuster! It’s also for anyone thinking that Cage is passed his prime, for Pedro Pascal fans (who isn’t?), and for anyone wanting a solid piece of cinematic entertainment rather than the continual plotless eye candy being dumped on us from Hollywood these days. Well worth a $20 purchase if you don’t take it too seriously. Enjoy.

Great to see Cage in a mainstream film. It was hilarious. Highly recommended

I never write reviews but this movie is worth the review. It was hilarious in the right spots. Full of action in the right spots. Sad in the right spots. Like this movie was perfect in everyday. The only bad thing is it ends. I wanted it to never end. Was great.

I bought the movie wondering what on earth has he gotten himself into now. Expectations were blown away. Entertainment and acting at its finest.

Superb storyline. More than decent acting. Enormously entertaining.Would have given it 5 stars exccept that although the movie was filmed in Mallorca, Spain all the accents were south american. This is typical of hollywood when trying to represent Spanish characters.

This movie was hilarious and awesome loved everything about it and I’m not a big nic Cage fan

John cina 2022-06-07
I wasn’t a Nicholas cage fan, I only saw the ghost rider movies and national treasure, but this movie instantly changed tht ❤️ and I agree him and Pedro pascal the duo tht was meant to be

nyctelecaster 2022-06-06
I'm a big Cage fan and I often compare Nicolas Cage to Vincent Price- both actors raise the real estate of any film they are in- good or bad. Of course Mr Cage is an academy award winner and Mandy, Pig and other recent films were excellent... but Nicolas Cage does capture the imagination. Why is he doing all these films? Did he really buy an Action comic for a million dollars? Does he have to make all these films to pay for his lifestyle? All this is captured in "...Massive Talent". It's an entertaining film, with a bit of too much fluff for my taste but it's cleverly written by a fan for fans. Well done! A must see for any Nicolas Cage fan- for certain!

Nicholas Cage and Pedro Pascal made an excellent duo. I haven’t laughed this much in a long time
