Nicolas Cage stars in another ‘largely forgettable B-movie’ – The Old Way review

After cult favourites Pig, Mandy, and The Unbearable Weight Of Massive Talent, it’s business as usual for Nicolas Cage with another largely forgettable B-movie.

In his first Western, Cage plays Colton Briggs, a cold-hearted and floridly moustachioed gun-for-hire who we meet as he guns down a varmint in front of the victim’s young son. After the camera focuses in on the kid’s murderous glare, we fast forward 20 years.

Briggs is now running a general store in Montana and now has a loving wife called Ruth (Kerry Knuppe) and a very serious 12-year-old daughter named Brooke (Ryan Kiera Armstrong). But stories of domestic bliss and flour selling aren’t the stuff of Westerns.

We know that the now-grown-up orphan will soon come back, forcing Briggs to saddle up and return to his undomesticated heyday.

Thankfully, the film delivers a few little surprises before we get to the inevitable showdown with Noah Le Gros’s outlaw.

The biggest shock is how quiet Cage is.
