Southern Fury

 (49)
1 h 37 min201715
Take a trip to the Deep South in this gruelling crime thriller, starring Nicolas Cage, John Cusack and Adrian Grenier. When a ruthless crime boss kidnaps his mobster brother Mikey, JP must go against the odds, out-ranked and out-gunned to save his brother's life. With his brother's old detective pal Sal by his side, they now face an army of relentless war-thirsty gangsters. Highly recommended!

Not great, but not utterly terrible either.

I almost skipped this movie based on the low rating and prior reviews. But I had some spare time and not much better to do with it than give this movie a try.

This movie does do a lot of things badly. Obviously the two biggest draws for the movie are the big names of John Cusack and Nicolas Cage, and the movie makes absolutely no value from either of them.

Cusack is cast as a character that contributes nothing at all to the story and looks like it was written in at the last minute to give him a role that is at once constantly given screen time, but for no apparent reason. Cage is at his absolute worst, and if his performance isn't actively guided and driven by the director, the director would still be completely to blame for accepting the performance given - i.e. not directing.

However, what is important to note is that neither of those 'stars' are the protagonist and actual star of the movie. The lead, and rest of the cast, actually give reasonable performances of the lifeless, 2 dimensional script.

Beneath the awful directing, and the insipid, flat script, is a pretty decent if uninspired plot. The basic story is good, it is simply in how it was adapted for the big screen, and directed, that drags it down. However, the story of brothers and their bond is still visible beneath all of the things so badly handled.

Make no mistakes, this is not a good movie. Not at all.

It may, perhaps, be worth seeing as yet another milestone in Cage's decline from grace and talent, as he hams up a terrible performance that could genuinely be his worst. It's far less of a milestone for Cusack's utterly irrelevant role, since that is completely meaningless and unmemorable. In general, this is a movie you watch out of having nothing better to do, and no expectations of serendipitous delight. If you are utterly bored, have some time to kill, this is still better than watching reality TV.

HOW DID THIS GET MADE WITH THIS DIRECTOR, AND THIS SCRIPT ?

I don't normally bother to review anything, but this movie is so awful, I couldn't let it go unscathed. A script written by an eleven year old boy raised on a diet of Steven Seagal dross could have come up with more convincing dialogue. What could have been challenging journey through a dysfunctionally family in extremis, is directed with all the subtlety of a "Mr Bean Movie".
Cusack is solid as usual, and the brothers are competent enough given the badly drawn, cartoon character stereotypes they play.
However, special mention must go to Mr Nicholas Cage, proving yet again, that it is not necessary to have talent to succeed; one merely needs to have a well connected uncle. His bizarrely fake makeup adds the only relief from his absurd, pantomime villain performance.

Pathetic from start to finish.

Since Face Off (and maybe Ghost Rider too) life has been very much downhill for Cage and with this film I am suspecting he has reached as low as it is at all possible to get. Cusack isn't much better and it is sad to see them both with absolutely no respect for themselves in this low budget joke of a film. Don't waste your time, and certainly not money either.

Awful, Abysmal and in itself a crime against film making.
Verified purchase
The plot is poor and terribly predictable. The script and dialog verge on the ridiculous and the less said about most of the characters the better. It is worth noting that while Nic Cage hams it up as an implausible mobster in a diabolical disguise, John Cussak plods through the movie looking rather embarrassed to be there.

Crazy, bad-ass Goodies trying to triumph over Gangsters that starts slowly, introducing the main Characters & their relationships but then escalating to a fairly typical beat-em-up Battleground

By far the worst movie I have seen for years. More effort has gone into this review than the script of that trash. The one star is only there because there is no option for none.

Probably the worst movie I have seen Cage and Cusack take part in. Not a 100% bad movie, more of a time filler really.
