We gave it a C-

It’s a bit of a kick when Oscar winners star in movies no Oscar winner should be seen in. So the prospect of watching Nicolas Cage light his head on fire to play Johnny Blaze, a stuntman who becomes the fiery, crime-fighting spirit of vengeance, sounds kinda fun. Let’s hope the filmmakers didn’t take the comic-book pulp too seriously. (Feb. 16)
