Is there one genre Ridley Scott can't direct? I mean, really. Sci-fi (Alien, Blade Runner), crime (American Gangster), epic (Gladiator) and war (Black Hawk Down). I think I proved my point.
Roy (Nicolas Cage) and Frank (Sam Rockwell) are a pair of small-time con artists. Roy has a list of phobias, including obsessive-compulsive disorder and agoraphobia. As they prepare for their next big scam, Roy learns about Angela (Alison Lohman), the daughter he never knew he had.
Having never seen any of Scott's other movies (I'll admit it), I didn't know what to expect. What I got was a hell of an entertaining movie. Cage, of all things, isn't over the top in his performance like he is in his other movies. Rockwell cracked me up. I anticipate for my next venture into the work of Ridley Scott.
My Rating: ****1/2
