Review

Our Score
A nonstop riot of gratuitous sex, full-on violence, gory gunfights and explosive car crashes makes this fun chase-and-chiller combo a high-energy trash extravaganza. Nicolas Cage plays vengeance-fuelled John Milton, who escapes from Hell to pursue the satanic cult that killed his daughter and is now set on sacrificing her baby in order to unleash the Devil. In an extension of his Ghost Rider role, Cage keeps it deliberately one-note to anchor the flashy mayhem, while Amber Heard is terrific as the feisty waitress caught up in his quest. Best of all, though, is William Fichtner, stealing every scene as the enigmatic Accountant, charged with getting Milton back to Hades. Director Patrick Lussier and co-writer Todd Farmer (the team behind 2009's My Bloody Valentine remake) ensure the sizzling dialogue, cartoon action and visual wildness remain at maxed-out extremes throughout for consistently enjoyable laughs and thrills.

Summary

A man breaks out of Hell when a satanic cult murders his daughter and kidnaps her baby. The infernal escapee pursues the leader of the fanatics, who plans to sacrifice the child to gain ultimate power - but he is being followed in turn by an agent of the Devil sent to take him back to his damnation. Fantasy thriller, starring Nicolas Cage, Amber Heard and William Fichtner.
