Action Fantasy Thriller
He Rides Again.
Watch trailer
Vote count 903 Vote avg 47 Release date 2011-12-10

Nicolas Cage riding around on a chopper with a flaming skull sounds pretty cool but trust me anything but cool comes to mind when watching Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance.


Season of the Witch (2011)

Adventure Fantasy Action
Not all souls can be saved.
Watch trailer
Vote count 592 Vote avg 52 Release date 2011-01-07

An incredibly average film with Cage playing a role that he seems to be bored with.


The Wicker Man (2006)

Mystery Thriller Horror
Some sacrifices must be made
Watch trailer
Vote count 284 Vote avg 39 Release date 2006-09-01

A truly terrible remake of the 1973 film. Cages' insane portrayal of police officer Edward Malus made the movie seem more like a comedy than a horror which it was intended to be.


Drive Angry (2011)

Fantasy Thriller Action
One hell of a ride.
Watch trailer
Vote count 505 Vote avg 53 Release date 2011-02-24


Seeking Justice (2011)

Action Drama Thriller
Vengeance always has a price

Next (2007)

Action Science Fiction Thriller
If you can see the future, you can save it.
Watch trailer
Vote count 694 Vote avg 59 Release date 2007-04-24

Not only is this movie garbage Cage is contending for the worst hair cut in cinematic history here.


Bangkok Dangerous (2008)

Action Crime Thriller
There's only one way out.
Watch trailer
Vote count 287 Vote avg 50 Release date 2008-08-21

Cage playing hitman in Thailand goes disastrously wrong here.


Zandalee (1991)

Drama Romance Thriller
One woman... two men... one driven by desire. The other driven to the edge.
Watch trailer
Vote count 20 Vote avg 43 Release date 1991-05-09

It's widely stated that Nicks taste for movies has declined in recent years but the lifeless heap that is Zandalee proves otherwise.


Deadfall (1993)

Crime Drama Thriller
...The ultimate con
Watch trailer
Vote count 8 Vote avg 30 Release date 1993-10-08

Wow, this one is truly dreadful. A wet wipe crime drama by director Christopher Coppola who made a string of rubbish movies in the 1990's. The most interesting thing about the 1993 movie "Deadfall" is how Cage was convinced to do this role.


The Boy in Blue (1986)

Watch trailer
Vote count 6 Vote avg 43 Release date 1986-01-17

"The Boy In Blue" makes you wish you'd decided to watch Con Air instead of having to endure this. No wonder that "The Boy In Blue" lost it's production company more than 5 million dollars at the box office.
