Prisoners of the Ghostland (2021)



Critic Consensus: Prisoners of the Ghostland is far from Sono's most distinctive work, but viewers in the mood for a deliriously gonzo genre mash-up featuring an explosive performance from Nicolas Cage just might have a ball.

In the treacherous frontier city of Samurai Town, a ruthless bank robber (Nicolas Cage) is sprung from jail by a wealthy warlord, The Governor (Bill Moseley), whose adopted granddaughter Bernice (Sofia Boutella) has run away. Strapped into a leather suit that will self-destruct within five days if he doesn't find the missing girl, the bandit sets off on a journey to find the young woman -- and his own path to redemption.

What's most missing in all this mayhem, though, is the vision of an auteur actively engaged with the meaning of the euphorically gonzo tableaux he's staging.

Utterly barmy.

Prisoners of the Ghostland isn't campy enough to be camp.

September 17, 2021 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

No movie with Nicolas Cage, directed by the wonderfully weird Japanese director Sion Sono, should be this taxing, drawn out, and plainly boring.

Sono may indulge in madness, but it's not madness without reason.

Prisoners OfTheGhostland is by turns brilliant andrubbish.Cage is in his element, it has visual invention to spare, and the fight scenes are fun,but it's a shame such imagination is tethered toequallyall-over-the-place storytelling.
