I think it's better to watch it when you're not steeped in modern film-i-verse, such as superhero franchises etc. Not saying that applies to people here, but I rarely see films now, so this was a real gem of an experience, not tainted by expectation.

My friend told me yesterday this film was the most accurate onscreen representation of an acid trip he's ever seen. It's as if he wanted me to somehow hate the thing even more than I already do.

Pros: it's just Nicolas Cage going full metal against a bunch of tough dudes

Cons: it's just Nicolas Cage going full metal against a bunch of tough dudes

Although judging it just as a revenge film I'd say a weakness was that only the S&M bikers really presented much of a physical threat, the actual cultists were all pretty weedy.

My expectations were tempered enough that I ended up enjoying it a good deal although hopefully Cage's film with Sion Sono latter this year will be more genuinely out there.
