It’s surprisingly bereft of action.
Is it a compliment to make this list?
Joining Simon West, the whole cast is coming back. Though another Schwarzenegger cameo is a bit up in the air right now.
This is a preview of what Danny Huston will look like as the cab driver, if that’s his role.
The characters take it all seriously, but the story just goes wildly over the top for the sake of creating awesome set pieces.
How can anyone dislike ‘Con Air’? The explosions…huge. The concept… ridiculous. The hairpieces… outlandish. The dialogue… terrible. In other words, it was really, really awesome.
Nicolas Cage, Mr. Loses His Sh*t himself, is about to bring more chaos to the crowded streets of Manhattan. The eccentric actor has joined the action thriller Medallion which is to be directed by Simon West.
Though it pains me to have to use Taxi Dog to break this news, there was no other way. Resoundingly mediocre film directors McG and Simon West are teaming up for Medallion. It's rumored that Nicolas Cage or Clive Owen will star as a man who has a short amount of time to track down his kidnapped daughter, who happens to be locked in the trunk of an unidentified NYC taxi cab.
Locked in a trunk? That sounds more like a job for Marvin Berry. I guess he's holding out for something that really cooks. McG will produce while Simon West enjoys a later call time than the rest of the crew. This unholy union can only mean one thing. The prophecy is correct. I will fall asleep on the couch while watching this on Netflix Instant. And so it shall be. (LA Times)
