Once upon a time, there was a very talented actor called Nicholas Cage, who set Box Offices alight all over the world. As it stands... this fairytale hasn’t concluded ‘happily ever after,’ as poor old Nick hasn’t had a hit movie in years. But, during the ‘once upon a time’ phase, he did a lot of good stuff.

‘Snake Eyes’ is pretty good. Yes, it’s a little far-fetched, but the fun you’ll get out of it will make up for the times when you have to suspend your disbelief in order to ignore the plot holes (and obvious storytelling).

During a live title fight in an Atlantic City boxing ring, a visiting politician is assassinated. But, local cop (and a slightly crooked one at that) Nicholas Cage, is on hand to get to the bottom of it all. So it’s a kind of ‘who-dun-it’ conspiracy thriller. Although there aren’t really that many possible culprits, so you’ll probably guess who’s the mastermind behind it all long before the final act. But that doesn’t really matter. The phrase ‘larger than life’ is best suited to describing Cage’s performance. He’s pretty over the top in all his scenes and, again, you may not always believe that a real person can act like that, you’ll enjoy the ride all the same.

It’s not a long film, clocking in at slightly over the hour and a half mark. And, despite having not that much new on offer, it’s still worth a watch. If you find it on TV late at night some time and feel like staying up, you’ll have a good time. Despite being shot in the nineties, it still stands the test of time in the ‘fun stakes.’

It`s unconventional and maybe a bit old fashioned,as the film is carried by its strong acting performances,good directing,and great soundtrack. Cage is perfect as the corrupt cynical cop who finds he has a moral limit. Cage & Sinise (& Kevin Dunn!) have been in some good films but nowhere have they seemed more real or impressive-It`s an actors film not an FX film.I wish they`d make a few more like this.

No commentary track, no "making of Snake Eyes" feature, very hard to find interviews about this film anywhere in fact "Snake Eyes" seems to have been sent to the Davy Jones locker equivalent of forgotten cinema. Over ten years old it seems to exist as the beginning of a worrying slide at least commercially for it's distinguished director Brian De Palma who has not enjoyed any major success at the box office since 1996 with "Mission Impossible". Yet I seem to have developed a minor obsession with this seemingly unremarkable film, hence this review.

"Snake Eyes" begins with a grandiose tracking shot, a rather long, complicated and quite unforgettable sequence which begins outside the casino in the beginning of a hurricane and finds Richard Santoro, a hot-shot, corrupt Atlantic city cop played by Nicolas Cage, in another high energy performance, strutting his way past television cameras, shaking down a hustler played Luis Guisman for some cash, placing a bet, talking to his wife and flirting with his mistress on his cell phone almost simultaneously and meeting up with his best friend, a naval commander, Kevin Dunne, played by Gary Sinise who happens to be running security for the secretary of defence in attendance at the fight. Once Cage and Sinise sit down talk and the fight starts the mesmerising opening shot is brought to an end just before the secretary is shot (shortly after Sinise left his post having noticed a "suspicious character").

By Call me Al TOP 500 REVIEWER on 8 May 2015
Format: DVD
Brian de Palma's superb movie draws you in with its introductory long uncut sequence following Nicholas Cages' animated extrovert crooked police detective Rick Santoro entering an Atlantic City boxing arena as a spectator. What follows is an intriguing Hitchcockian experience (including a blonde lady, albeit a wig) as the assassination of a politician seated behind him forces Santoro to reassess his moral compass as he investigates the killing. I loved the music, the cinematography, the camera angles, the Rashomonesque examination of the assassination and the pure exuberance of the film. Although some may think that the relatively early `reveal' detracts from the film, I disagree. This is a director at his artistic peak. An entertaining thriller well worth seeking out.

There was a time in the mid to late nineties when all of a sudden, Nicolas Cage became one of Hollywood's most bankable stars.

It started around the time when The Rock was released, and more or less ended when The Family Man came out in 2000. But between that time, Cage could've made a film with him just looking out of the window, and it would have at least made a minuscule profit.

How times have changed....

Ricky Santoro is a corrupt Atlantic City cop with a dream. Become so well connected that he can become mayor. In the meantime though, he'll settle for keeping his comfortable lifestyle.

On the night of the heavyweight boxing championship, Ricky becomes mixed up in the assassination of the Secretary of Defense, an assassination involving his best friend.

Becoming the investigating officer, Ricky soon uncovers a conspiracy to kill the Secretary and a mysterious woman in white........

De Palma has always been my favourite director. Not because his films are the perfect example of cinema, they are certainly not, but he has one of the most original eyes for cinematography and wonderful shots that just linger in the mind. Even films that have him apparently restrained, such as Mission Impossible, have a certain scene at a certain angle that really raise the tension of the film.

Here, it's the twenty minute 'one take shot', which we all know clearly isn't, but it's still exciting and really sets you up for a fall. It's seamless, beautiful, and Nicolas Cage is just fantastic in this opening scene.
