#CageClub #105 – Jiu Jitsu (2020)
The streak continues! After nearly 11 months of worrying (and 8 months of a global pandemic), a new Nicolas Cage has seen the light of day in 2020: Jiu Jitsu. The internet has created a massive backlash against this movie, but we’ve gotta say: it’s pretty okay! Featuring one of Cage’s most grounded performances in a while (pay no mind to our episode art), it’s a nice return to form for Supporting Character Cage and a new foray into the world of martial arts. In this episode, we talk about Cage’s performance, some of the narrative/plot inconsistencies, and how we would have made this movie better. We also talk about a semi-major (albeit brief) crossover with 2 Fast 2 Forever, the physicality (and acting styles) of Frank Grillo and Tony Jaa, and determine just how Cage-y this movie is with our #CageClub Bingo checklist.
