Poster Rating: C / C-

Review: (#1) A chaotic, cluttered affair that has plenty of detail. The problem is most of it looks and feel unrealistic, which won’t win it much attention. (#2) Worse still, the second poster doubles down on the Nicolas Cage image while combining too many elements of the story into one place, none of which feels natural to the design.

Trailer Rating: C-

SEE ALL TRAILERS BELOW
Review: The trailer is about what you would expect from one of Nicolas Cage’s recent efforts. The production quality is questionable, the story is antiquated, and the entirety of the trailer plays like a reject from the 1940’s when patriotism was strong, but quality was still important.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
