At one point in the trailer for Tokarev, the new thriller by Paco Cabezas, a stern old cop played by Danny Glover warns Nicolas Cage‘s ex-criminal character not to fall back into old habits. Cage’s character does not seem terribly interested in that advice, and based on the mere fact that Cage is in this movie at all, neither is Cage himself.
Though Cage’s next big-screen appearance will be in David Gordon Green’s Joe, a gritty Southern drama that’s been earning high praise all over the film festival circuit, Tokarev brings him right back to the cheesy genre territory where he more often resides these days. As you’d expect, it’s chock full of violence and overwrought angst, with at least two scenes of Cage majorly freaking out. Check out the trailer after the jump.
