‘The Trust’ Review: Nic Cage Delivers a Solid Thriller
‘The Trust’ Review: Nic Cage Delivers a Solid Thriller
Let’s get this out of the way up front: No, Nicolas Cage does not go “Full Cage” in The Trust. He goes about half-Full Cage, or maybe half-Empty Cage — your Cage mileage may vary. For the record, this reviewer finds it to be the former in this somewhat sharp, darkly comedic little thriller from directors Ben and Alex Brewer, with the former making his feature directing debut. Cage returns to the Las Vegas he once famously left, joined by Elijah Wood for a simple but mostly effective heist flick.

At this point in his long and illustrious career, Nicolas Cage has become more of a force of nature than mere actor. He’s like the weather: always in the process of making movies, with no rhyme or reason dictating which ones will be good, which ones will be bad, and which ones will be bad in a way that makes you feel good. Sometimes it rains, sometimes the sun shines, and while we can try as we may to predict the forecast, you can never tell how much fun a Nicolas Cage picture will be until you’re watching it.

Nicolas Cage definitely makes some interesting choices, and it's never easy to tell which of his upcoming projects we should take seriously, but 'The Trust' definitely has potential to give us some of that good Cage action. The actor will co-star with Elijah Wood in the new film from newcomers Ben and Alex Brewer, playing crooked cop buddies who get in over their heads. Wood and Cage is not a pairing we'd ever imagine, but now that we think of it, it's pretty intriguing.
