In my mind, and perhaps in yours, I saw Cage going all John Wick in this “Truffle Hunters” tale. You don’t mess with a man’s truffle hunting pig. No-sir.
As someone who makes it a point to watch everything the Oscar winner puts on film, every B and C- movie he churns out in his workaholism as therapy lifestyle (He told me once he needs the work to get out of his head, and I believe him.), that’s the sort of film it sounded like when it was first announced.
Gonzo. Violent. Vengeful.
And since, as the trailer suggests, it isn’t, maybe they’ll do that with the sequel?
