Being a collection of 7 different shorts, I should do like 7 different reviews, but I don't really care to do so.
They're ok except for the very long and boring and tedious last one from Gaspar Noè that drops the quality of the whol thing a whole LOT.
Beside that one it was an interesting visual trip. 7/10
Oh god I love these early 00s vibes.
Loving all the outfits. Loving the humor. Loving the editing and style. Loving the hacker character wearing sunglasses in front of a screen for the whole movie.
Exactly what you'd expect it to be, but way more fun and entertaining.
It was actually fun! Like actually fun, not "so bad it's funny" fun.
Also I get emotional every time I see concerts in movies.
110th position in my ranked Dumb & Fun Movie List
Ok, it has impressive body count of 199 (a little bit cheating since 150 are just in the final 15 minutes), but as its predecessor it was too much of a drama.
Extremely slow at times, very boring, over-dramatic and overall uninteresting plot.
The directing was damn fire. All the scenes were amazing. Every single one of them. But damn that plot was a fucking wreck for my enjoyment.
A WHOLE EXTRA STAR for the absolutely outstanding last fight scene…
Everything was damn fine, except for the very rushed very last 20 minutes. wtif?
Taking half star out of the good 8/10 score just because of that!
Beside that it was a very good trip. The photography was phenomenal and I liked how I've empathized with the kid protagonist in this fascination with the new alien stranger.
Top Gun without planes but with an excessively horny super chad Nic Cage trying to fuck for most of the time (when he's not killing stuff on an Apache Combat Helicopter, or punching in the face his helicopter academy teacher).
There's even a scene when he's trying to fuck while flying an helicopter.
Pretty cool, lemme say!
Plenty of cage moments as well. Nic is the coolest dude once again.
25th position in my CAGE RANKED List
Damn great visual trip with some insane strong early 2000s vibes going on!
Very nice experiment shoot using mostly only vhs camcoders.
Like Sono found an infrared camera somewhere and he went like "ooooh, nice, I can write a script on this visual effect".
Also great jazzy soundtrack.
