This film Rage was once called Tokarev, but the basics are the same: Nicolas Cage plays a guy whose daughter is kidnapped one night. But there’s no question that this is some random victimization. No, the problem is that Cage’s character’s criminal past has come back to haunt him. And despite the good advice of Danny Glover, a guy who is great at giving cautious, good advice, Cage goes right back to his bad old ways.
Oh, and the daughter is played by Aubrey Peeples, who we’ll soon see as Jem in Jon M. Chu’s film Jem and the Holograms.

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.
