I was not going to watch this movie as most of Cage’s recent efforts seem to have been shot on a relatively small budget in Louisiana or any other state that offers movie makers tax breaks to come and shoot third rate B movies in swaps or cities such as New Orleans.
The Trust was shot in Vegas so I thought I would give it a try based more or less on that alone. After movies such as ‘Left Behind’ and ‘Rage’ I was not expecting much from the man who used to make movies like ‘Machstick Men’ and ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’ and now has straight to download /DVD attached to many of his offerings.
Well The Trust was a slight improvement, but not much, two cops turn ‘bank robbers’ in this slow paced and predictable ‘rob the mob’ movie.
His partner Elijah Wood looks like he is sleepwalking through the entire movie with an expression that says ‘what am I doing here’?
I will not tell you the story, telling anything will more or less give away the plot, such as it is. Cage had better start getting his hands on some decent scripts before he is offered ‘CSI New Orleans’ as his next gig.
