The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent is an action comedy film, with Hollywood star Nicolas Cage as the main character.
It can be said that this film is a personal film for Nicolas Cage, because apart from starring and being the main character. He also produced the film himself, along with Samson Mucke, Kristin Burr, Michael Nilon and Kevin Turen.
Interestingly, from the beginning of the opening to the end of the film, it can be seen how thick references to Nicolas Cage’s films are scattered in the dialogue and also the action scenes.
It feels like there are elements of films such as Face/Off, The Rock, Con Air which at that time were films that attracted the attention of the film-loving community.
Then accompanying Nicolas Cage, there was actor Pedro Pascal who was seen in Game of Thrones, The Mandalorian and Wonder Woman 1984, also Tiffany Haddish, Ike Barinholtz and of course Neil Patrick Harris (The Matrix: Resurrection, How I Met Your Mother)
However, because this film focuses too much on the figure of Nicolas Cage, those who are not fans may feel confused and unable to understand the comedy elements contained, and this will indeed make the audience not feel related to the audience who understands the actor Nicolas Cage.
Appearing to attract attention is a figure Lily Mo Sheen, who is the daughter of Kate Beckinsale and Michael Sheen. His appearance in this film is enough to attract attention and make the audience remember him.
The chemistry between Nicolas Cage and Pedro Pascal itself is built according to the demands of the story, which shows the characters who hesitate when they first meet, but when the situation becomes more complex, they become like people who share the same fate and make it an interesting spectacle. When you see the closeness that eventually builds up, it produces something that makes the audience’s emotions get carried away and also melts seeing the action of the two of them, here indeed the fans will give a lot of appreciation and the tempo of the storyline changes to be closer and personal.
This film may not appeal to non-Nicolas Cage fans, but the dialogue and action is different from the usual storyline, providing a different kind of viewing.
