Nicolas Cage roles acting List order as defined by john

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2011)

Action Fantasy Thriller
He Rides Again.
Vote count 903 Vote avg 4.7/10 Release date 2011-12-10 Watch trailer

Nicolas Cage riding around on a chopper with a flaming skull sounds pretty cool but trust me anything but cool comes to mind when watching Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance.


Season of the Witch (2011)

Adventure Fantasy Action
Not all souls can be saved.
Vote count 591 Vote avg 5.2/10 Release date 2011-01-07 Watch trailer

An incredibly average film with Cage playing a role that he seems to be bored with.


The Wicker Man (2006)

Mystery Thriller Horror
Some sacrifices must be made
Vote count 280 Vote avg 3.9/10 Release date 2006-09-01 Watch trailer

A truly terrible remake of the 1973 film. Cages' insane portrayal of police officer Edward Malus made the movie seem more like a comedy than a horror which it was intended to be.


Drive Angry (2011)

Fantasy Thriller Action
One hell of a ride.
Vote count 503 Vote avg 5.3/10 Release date 2011-02-24 Watch trailer


Seeking Justice (2011)

Action Drama Thriller
Vengeance always has a price
Vote count 254 Vote avg 5.8/10 Release date 2011-09-02 Watch trailer


Next (2007)

Action Science Fiction Thriller
If you can see the future, you can save it.
Vote count 692 Vote avg 5.9/10 Release date 2007-04-24 Watch trailer

Not only is this movie garbage Cage is contending for the worst hair cut in cinematic history here.


Bangkok Dangerous (2008)

Action Crime Thriller
There's only one way out.
Vote count 286 Vote avg 5/10 Release date 2008-08-21 Watch trailer

Cage playing hitman in Thailand goes disastrously wrong here.


Zandalee (1991)

Drama Romance Thriller
One woman... two men... one driven by desire. The other driven to the edge.
Vote count 20 Vote avg 4.3/10 Release date 1991-05-09 Watch trailer

It's widely stated that Nicks taste for movies has declined in recent years but the lifeless heap that is Zandalee proves otherwise.


Deadfall (1993)

Crime Drama Thriller
...The ultimate con
Vote count 8 Vote avg 3/10 Release date 1993-10-08 Watch trailer

Wow, this one is truly dreadful. A wet wipe crime drama by director Christopher Coppola who made a string of rubbish movies in the 1990's. The most interesting thing about the 1993 movie "Deadfall" is how Cage was convinced to do this role.


The Boy in Blue (1986)

Vote count 6 Vote avg 4.3/10 Release date 1986-01-17 Watch trailer

"The Boy In Blue" makes you wish you'd decided to watch Con Air instead of having to endure this. No wonder that "The Boy In Blue" lost it's production company more than 5 million dollars at the box office.
