I absolutely loved this movie--three thumbs up. Nicholas Cage did an awesome job and deserves an Oscar nod for his fine performance. Plus the unexpected twist ending was a nice treat.

Thoughts from anyone else who saw this awesomely awesome flick?

The film was fantastic. The awesome thing is the ending makes sense from every angle. It's perfect!

See this film!

I had three movies I wanted to see this weekend. Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Cabin Fever, and Matchstick Men. I saw two of them. Matchstick Men was not one of them, unfortunately. I should've just saw this one movie, because I'm sure it's better than than those two major disappointments put together.

Matchstick Men was great. The ending doesn't hold up to any scrutiny whatsoever, but if you hold that against the movie you're a fool. Cage was great. The girl was great. The only bad reviews were from people who thought that Frank was 'hilarious' and that the movie dragged without him.

Jaguar, you're INSANE. It DOES hold up to scrutiny. But, so save the good people here of spoilers...I'll talk to you...

I saw this flick on Friday, and I of course agree with all the others in heaping praise on the movie. Cage was awesome, and I loved the twist toward the end. It's like Usual Suspects in that I want to see this again and figure out how I didn't see the twist before.

The dynamic with Frank was okay, but I don't understand caring too much about Sam's character. Cage and Lohman control the movie, and it's their relationship that drives this film.

Go see this film!
