Two new posters of Bad Lieutenant, the upcoming remake movie directed by Werner Herzog and starring Nicolas Cage and Eva Mendes, have surfaced online:
The only criminal he can’t catch is himself.
““Terence McDonagh (Nicolas Cage), a homicide detective with the New Orleans Police Department, is promoted to Lieutenant after he saves a prisoner from drowning in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. However, during his heroic act, he severely injures his back and is put on prescription pain medication. A year later, Terence – struggling with his addictions to sex, Vicodin and cocaine – finds himself in the battle to bring down drug dealer Big Fate, who is suspected of massacring an entire family of African immigrants.”
The early reviews of Werner Herzog’s Bad Lieutenant are rather positive. Some even state that this is Nicolas Cage’s best role since a while. Well, from the trailer of Bad Lieutenant I was already hooked. That positive buzz just confirms that I definitely have to go watch Bad Lieutenant when it will be released in theaters!
