This film cannot contain Nic Cage. He is absolutely off the chain. 10 Cage points.
What an ugly directionless mess. I love Michael Fassbender but he's now in two of the worst films I have ever seen in my life.
This film has precious little to do with the source material, takes a horrifically uninformed and patronising approach to mental illness and just generally wallows around in selfish prickery to no particular end. The main character is a hateful cunt and there is nothing to enjoy. Avoid.
I first watched this shortly after it came out on video in 1992 (possibly even on a pirated copy while it was still in cinemas). It was such a dull and disappointing end to a (then) trilogy that I didn't watch it again for 20 years. After several people assured me that it wasn't that bad and was probably better than I remembered I decided it was time to watch it again. What a mistake. This film is 173 hours…
