Has one or two laughs in the first half and one or two moments of genuine tension in the second half, aaaaaand that’s about it. A very understated movie to have gotten both Elija Wood and Nic Cage. Just one of them (especially if it was Cage) and I might have expected something like this, but was surprised given the presence of both. He still gets a freakout in of course, but not a whole lot, like… Happened.
_Final rating:★★ – Had some things that appeal to me, but a poor finished product._
Nicolas Cage (“Stone”) and Elijah Wood (“Waters”) team up quite well in this rather enjoyable and quirky crime caper. Both are Las Vegas evidence room cops whose careers are going nowhere fast. Until, that is, the former spots a curious bail receipt that leads them to start investigating just what might be hidden in the most innocuous of locations. Armed with some surprising information, they decide to find out just what is actually in an erstwhile secret vault. Their really quite scientific antics are helped enormously by some decent, quick-witted, banter between the two and the whole plot remains unpredictable right the way to the conclusion which does makes it worth a watch eventually. Yep, that is one of it’s snags. It does take way too long to get up and running, and at times it does elicit a “get on with it” sigh. Unfortunately, too, the ending is rather hurried – which is a shame because an on-form Cage particularly, but Wood too – don’t really get a chance to finish this off anywhere near as entertainingly as it deserved. Passes ninety minutes effortlessly enough, though – but I doubt you will recall it afterwards.
Not your typical VOD flick!
I saw the trailer for ‘The Trust’ a few weeks ago and I thought it looked interesting since I’m a fan of Nicolas Cage. He had a lot of bad movies recently but also a few good under-looked movies (Joe, Frozen Ground, Drive Angry). It’s fair to say that ‘The Trust’ is a good entry in Nicolas Cage’s volatile filmography.
The ending might be the weak point of the film, maybe don’t go in with too much expectations, but Nicolas Cage and Elijah Wood were really surprising. They had a couple of funny moments together, and they were definitely carrying this movie.
I love a movie with a cool soundtrack, and I thought the directors (Alex & Benjamin Brewer) did a nice job setting the tone for this Las Vegas caper movie with great music and funny scenes. Elijah Wood is playing a stoner cop and I thought it was a good role for him. The acting was really on point the entire movie.
The Bobo scene was hilarious, and the whole ‘heist’ takes different twists and turns.
Even though the first hour is the best part and it falls short in the last 30 minutes, I recommend giving ‘The Trust’ a try if you like crime/comedy movies, or if you’re a fan of Nicolas Cage.
fun little black comedy
Sergeant Waters (Elijah Wood) and his boss Lieutenant Stone (Nicolas Cage) work evidence collection in the general corruption of the Las Vegas Police Department. Stone is tired of the mild incompetence of the force. A secret drug stash inside a car engine leads to an excessive $200k bail receipt. Stone recruits Waters to find this petty criminal and the source of the cash. They discover a mysterious vault in the back of a grocery store.
It’s a fun little crime drama black comedy. Wood and Cage work well together as a corrupt buddy cop duo. Cage is having a bit of fun at the expense of Wood. Trust is a hard thing to come by in this movie and that keeps the audience from fully rooting for them. It would have solidified their relationship if they’re family or childhood friends. It never occurs to me why Waters would ever trust Stone in this caper. Nevertheless, there are some humorous darkness that makes this worthwhile. The last act is muddled which keeps this from being great.
