Another month brings news of another Nicolas Cage movie. The hardest working man in Hollywood’s latest action-thriller is A Score To Settle. Yes, it looks much like business as usual for Cage here (revenge, action etc), but he seems to playing it all a little more low key. That’s the beauty of these Cage movies, you never know what he’s going to bring to the table.
Benjamin Bratt co-stars. Do you remember when they tried to make him a ‘thing back in the late 90s/early00s? It didn’t take.
Here’s the trailer for A Score To Settle – which arrives in the UK on Digital Download on 23 September and DVD on 30 September.
Here’s the synopsis:
After being paid-off to take a murder rap, Frank (Nicolas Cage) receives an unexpected life sentence and spends the next two decades locked behind bars. After receiving a terminal diagnosis, he walks out of prison to live his final days as a free man, but with a thirst for revenge against those who wronged him.
Torn by the need to repair his relationship with his estranged son and his need to exact vengeance, Frank soon discovers a truth withheld from him long ago and must race furiously against the ticking clock of his life to expose the lies of the past.
The choice between family, friendship, love and hate is no longer as clear as he once thought, and Frank is forced to face secrets he has spent years avoiding.
Prepare yourself for an unhinged Nicolas Cage performance for the ages… he’s got beef, and it’s time for payback!
