Once you get past the wig, Season Of The Witch doesn’t look half bad. I’m not sure why its release was pushed to be dumped in the movie-going wasteland that is January (the New Jersey of months) with all the stinkers. Yes, Nicolas Cage movies can sometimes be silly, and, yes, Dominic Sena-directed films are known to cause indigestion, but I’m on board with this one.
If you’re familiar with the previous trailer, you know the plot. Nicolas Cage and Ron Perlman play large-headed knights who are tasked with delivering a supposed witch to her execution. However, Cage sees a sweetness in her and has doubts that she is a total witch. He then rises up against the church elders (re: total dicks) and their CGI desert army to do what’s right. Whatever. I’m not saying I love it, but it could have done well against Jonah Hex.
