Tagline: Let Nicolas Cage Month begin!
This review contains examples of:
- Alternative Character Interpretation: In-universe, NC thinks Eve knew full well Castor was in the form of her husband, but didn't report it cause he gave her one hell of a footrub.
- Captain Obvious Aesop: Parodied in-universe in the shootout scene:Critic: If there's any message that this movie is trying to get across, it's "don't put kids in the middle of a violent shootout between FBI agents and terrorists for hire". I don't know how many movies we have to make before America gets that, but clearly we're not there yet.
- Disturbed Doves: Their relative absence in the movie from such scenes as Archer's first shootout with Castor, the jailbreak scene, and so on, becomes a Running Gag.
- Ham-to-Ham Combat: The fact that this is what is going to happen between Nicolas Cage and John Travolta has the Critic so ecstatic he needs to pause for a moment to relish it.
- Overly Long Gag: Title Drop edition.
- So Bad, It's Good: Like Commando, this is his ultimate opinion on the movie.
- Soundtrack Dissonance: The Critic considers the idea of playing music to keep Castor's son calm a lame attempt by the director to be artsy that wouldn't do anything in real life.
- Take That!: When a helicopter joins in the chase on Castor Troy's aircraft:Man on loudspeaker: We will make you do Ghost Rider 3!Cage: Oh come on, guys! I pissed fire in the last one! Even I thought that was kind of stupid!
