“Hannibal Lector on Ice”
A film based on a true story (Gives you extra chills if you keep this in mind) with the cooperation of a number of famous names as cast. Nicolas Cage as the dutiful State Trooper Jack Halcombe (a fictional character based on detective Glenn Flothe in reality), who’s been assigned his last mission before he retires. Yet another detective who gets his last “case” and in no time realizes that this is going to be a hard nut to crack. Same as Robert Duvall in “Falling Down” or Morgan Freeman in “Se7en “. Cage guarantees always the same way of lethargic acting. Whether he’s an alcoholic as in “Leaving Las Vegas” or a chemical weapons specialist in “The Rock“, his acting routine is basically the same. Personally I think he deviates in this routine in “Matchstick Men” in which he performs in an excellent way. Recently he played in lesser films like “Stolen” and “Ghost Rider“. But he always gets from me the benefit of the doubt .
