The scant action scenes are decently staged, but what holds this film back is the continual drop of long monologues. They happen several times and not only do they slow down the momentum, but they don't add anything to the narrative. Cage does his usual threatening dead-eye delivery and Armstrong possesses plenty of pluck. There's virtually nothing about this movie that's original and it might have been a bit more bearable if it stuck to Western tropes instead of dramatic monologues. Expand

I like Nicolas Cage, but that's hardly going to change my opinion of many of the movies he makes. Bad is bad no matter what.

In this case, The Old Way couldn't be considered among his worst, but it's really a western that provides very little entertainment and feels severely unbalanced at times, mostly due to the simplicity of its script and its obviously low budget.

The dynamic between Cage and the girl is good, but that can barely do half the job overall, because the rest of the cast doesn't help much, and as I said, with such a mediocre script, there are only certain places to go, and in this case it all leads to disappointment.

I decided not to watch his movies anymore, but I couldn't stand it again. But again, the result is disappointing. First of all, it's like the bad guys cartoon typing. Shooting angles are a disaster. Acting is amateurish. Cage has already forgotten acting. His last good movie was "Mandy" in my opinion. It was also a director's success. Cage is now just role-smashing. No acting or charisma. Have someone tell him that he's not being mysterious and charismatic by being blunt. But I will say nice things for that little and beautiful girl. Because he was the only actor in the movie. Whatever role was given, he did more than enough. But the people on the set did not follow this beautiful girl in the shooting and did not take an example.

As for the movie, our guy is a casual man killer. He shoots a man in front of his little boy in a town. It's been 20 years. Our man is married, has a child and is engaged in trade. So he repented. But a group comes and kills his wife. Ours is also breaking an oath for vengeance.

The subject is already familiar. But if the script, shooting and acting were like the man, he would still do the job. But it didn't.

Cage, I expect an explosion from you, but I'm losing hope.

There is no sex or nudity in the movie.
