TIFF Midnight Madness. Nic Cage To See. But the fact of the matter is that the films attempts at showcasing depraved and violent content is really just a disguise for the fact that there's really interesting going on in the narrative.
There's a few interesting elements, like how Mad Dog Dafoe attempts to atone for the mistakes he has made in his past, like murdering his girlfriend and her daughter in a brutal fashion.
He wants to start over with a clean slate. No drugs, no senseless murdering, nothing. I found that interesting because, as if it wasn't obvious, Mad Dog is the most interesting character in the entire movie.
There's nothing to boy Troy and Diesel. Troy is the leader and Diesel is just a fat Channing Tatum. There's nothing to either Troy or Diesel that isn't 'we just got out of prison and we need to take on whatever jobs' to stay afloat.
This is where the movie reveals its plot, where Mad Dog, Troy and Diesel are hired to kidnap this kid.
This is the big job. Prior to this, the three take on bit jobs that leave them with very little money to sustain themselves.
Naturally they're a little wary of taking the job, since kidnapping is serious business. But they go ahead and take it. Naturally, as if it wasn't obvious, things go wrong and they kill the guy that was actually gonna pay the ransom.
This means that the guys won't get paid and they've pissed off the guy that hired them. But, you might think that this means they're gonna have to go against the guy that hired them.
That's another wrong assumption as, realistically speaking, they face absolutely no consequences for fucking up the job.
And the guy that hired Troy and his crew is out millions of dollars and yet he doesn't care one bit. So that was pointless. It's just used as a plot point to get to where Troy, Diesel and Mad Dog start imploding and they're all killed off.
I'd say spoiler, but with this movie, you know the type of ending these characters are gonna get. The problem with the movie is that there's nothing in the narrative that holds your attention.
It uses shock value in order to make up for the fact that there's no story or character development to speak of. There would be no problem with the more violent elements of the film if they supported a narrative that actually attempted to develop its characters instead of just being random and surreal for no reason whatsoever.
They depend on a good cast to get them out of the hole they dig themselves in and, as good as the cast is, they're not miracle workers.
They just dig too deep of a hole for themselves to get out of. And it's not even like the movie is bad, but it's one that would, and could, have been great with an actual focus on a real story and stronger character development than we got.
I can't recommend this movie based on that, but it certainly won't bore you. Decent movie at best. Jesse O Super Reviewer. Jan 07, Dog Eat Dog is about a trio of criminals Nicholas cage, Willem DaFoe, and Christopher Matthew Cook that are trying to get a big score.
Their big score is kidnapping a baby. It goes down the toiler. Messy, so very messy. This film is an incoherent piece of trash.
The plot is all over the place and leaves so much hanging out to no resolution. It's like a building that is midway through its demolition.
Hallways lead to oblivion and pieces of junk just sticking here and there with no real purpose anymore. Junior high schoolers could write a better script than this.
The stories that children develop when playing with a menagerie of action figures are better than this. I can't really say that the ending is satisfying because there is nothing satisfying in this film.
It goes for a cheap shock to introduce the film and really just sits there spinning its wheels for the remainder of the film.
The acting is hammy and over the top. Cage continues to bury his once great career in another garbage film with another garbage performance.
He goes overboard ala The Wicker Man and does a terrible Bogart impression. Let this be a lesson to everyone out there to pay yout taxes or you'll have to be in crap like Dog eat Dog.
Dafoe isn't as far down the shoot as Cage is career wise, but if he keeps appearing in films like this his legacy will be torched by the easy paychecks films like this must pay.
He plays a parody of himself. It's a miserable experience because he doesn't really have anything to work with and an over the edge Dafoe isn't anything new.
