Nicolas Cage plays a long-dead criminal who escapes from hell in order to pursue the murderers of his daughter—who are also the kidnappers of his granddaughter. This has all the makings of a good, crazy Cage movie, but the actor is mysteriously withdrawn and seems bored throughout. While director Patrick Lussier uses the 3-D medium to good effect in the opening sequences, he seems to lose interest as well. So … you basically get a bored filmmaker with a bored actor doing overall boring things. William Fichtner is actually very funny as one of hell’s accountants, who is chasing after Cage. Also on the plus side, you get Amber Heard in 3-D, and I just can’t hate a movie that features Amber Heard in 3-D.
