Critic Reviews for Vengeance: A Love Story
Any hope of prestige is dashed by the heavy-handed, cliché-ridden direction of former stuntman Johnny Martin and his star's detached portrayal of a guy whose mind is permanently elsewhere.
Vengeance doesn't deliver even the fun of a nutty Cage performance, so viewers are stuck with a predictable plot, terrible dialogue and flat acting.
By now, Nicolas Cage can practically sleepwalk through these types of generic vigilante roles.
Audience Reviews for Vengeance: A Love Story
Nicolas Cage is out for blood in Vengeance: A Love Story. When the trial of four young men who brutally raped and beat a single mother goes south and it looks like they'll get off, the cop who rescued the woman goes rogue in order to get justice. Anna Hutchison gives an incredibly strong performance and Cage is pretty impressive as well (though he's more of a supporting character). And, Don Johnson is also rather good as a sleazy defense attorney. However, the script is a little uneven and oddly paced; with Cage falling in and out of the plot, and kind of just snapping in order to go on his rampage. Still, the directing is especially well-done; particularly the sexual assault and courtroom drama scenes, which are extremely evocative and hard to watch. It has some problems, but Vengeance: A Love Story is a captivating thriller.
