Preview, Nicolas Cage has to find his missing “Ride Along” kid in the midst of a bank heist in “211”

Nicolas Cage has played a few cops in his time.

Nowadays, when his character says “I’m about to retire,” we can believe it. He’s put in his time and the miles show.

“211” is a low-budget heist picture based on a real bank robbery, with Cage’s cop taking a high school kid on a “ride along” and stumbling into a long and bloody siege at that bank.

I have a soft spot for Cage and his many films in the B, C and D movie wilderness. This one could be all right, and at least isn’t cheesy sci-fi or some Bangkok-set fiasco.
