I agree with sapien that the ending was a bit too tidy of a way to wrap things up - but overall it was a pretty good film and Nicolas Cage actually impressed me for once. Was it mind blowing? No - but it was a good crime drama.

Nicolas Cage's comeback/proof that he is an amazing actor- great iguana motif and disturbing character. Also great character evolution/downfall.

"Bad Lieutenant" by Yojimbo

A corrupt New Orleans detective juggles his drug addiction, high class hooker girlfriend and gambling debts while trying to solve the gangland execution of a Senegalese family. Bad Lieutenant is a semi-remake of an extremely bleak and nihilistic Abel Ferrara film but its approach is rather more comic than the original, largely because of Nicolas Cage's typically eccentric performance.

Not Bad, but not BAD enough

I was somewhat disappointed in this film but yet somewhat surprised. Nic cage is one of my least favorite actors and these movie shows yet again that he simply is not good at acting. Despite this major flaw, the story is decent.

So I say the story is decent, but really it could have been a lot better. Think post Katrina with a couple of crooked cops. Sounds good, right? Well Herzog went lame and didn't show the true grit of the area. They should have left out any of the post Katrina part out of it. It didn't add anything to the story.

It was well shot and decently paced. Kind of saucy at times but in the end fell flat. Eva Mendes was hot as usual and the rest of cast was OK. The movie was not edgy enough nor was the star good at acting.

I would rent this to check it out, but don'...
