  • Any resemblance between this Bad Lieutenant and the 1992 Abel Ferrara landmark is purely in the head of the dude who thought up the title. show more

  • The sparkle is what's been missing in the star's (Cage) recent performances. What's not to love in a movie that transmutes Terence's moral squalor, and the squalid state of post-Katrina New Orleans, into darkly comic gold? show more

  • A one-of-a-kind experience that boasts a twice-in-a-lifetime performance from Nicolas Cage. The actor has not gone this deep into the abyss since "Vampire's Kiss" (1989). show more

    Cage gives a great performance about the shallowness and corruption of a drug-addict cop.

    It'***** or miss with me and Nicolas Cage. This was a miss. I don't mind my leading man to have a few flaws in his personality, but "Bad" doesn't come close to describing this Lieutenant. As far as acting, the funky shoulder tilt thing Cage does to infer he has a bad back looks ridiculous. Everyonr knows that the tilt begins at the hips, not the shoulders. It was lame (pardon the pun). Don't buy this movie. I wish I hadn't!
