Although it may seem that stagnates with delusional projects time and time again, the truth is that the movies of Nicolas cage They stopped being “films with Nicolas Cage” a long time ago and for that very reason we all win. Now the star premieres on our portable screens one of his latest follies, the very b pulling az, ‘Willy’s Wonderland‘.
The delusional world of the Willys
Although it is more interesting as a concept than once unfolded before our eyes, ‘Willy’s Wonderland’ has a truly fantastic intra-story that grabs the Banana Split and transforms them into purebred diabolical dolls. Of course, Kevin Lewis’s film, a guy who has been filming true delusions for a quarter of a century, never lives up to expectations, but that does not prevent it from being an ideal entertainment for an afternoon at home.
We are not going to blame good old Cage now for leaving his mark on minor projects that live off an irresistible pitch. Here we have Alex de la Iglesia selling the best synopses of Spanish cinema recent with the most irregular results. ‘The bar‘, ‘Sad trumpet ballad‘ O ‘My big night‘They also work better telling what they go from, from the synopsis, than undergoing them. And nothing happens.
A janitor (Nicolas Cage) is hired to clean a decaying amusement park called “Willy’s Wonderland.” Once there you will discover that the characters in the park are under an ancient curse and is involved in an all-out struggle for survival. If with that you are not completely inside, you will tell me.
All the good and the less good of the b series is present in ‘Willy’s Wonderland’ without any blush. A protagonist who does not say a single word in the entire film, a group of idiotic teenagers, gushing blood and script twists as grateful as they are impossible. Inside your tight case footage there is no time for respiteToo bad the constant breakdowns into action end up being somewhat repetitive.
But don’t be down. The film keeps some other gift for fans of The Cage: a impressive moment at the controls of a pinball It will be the most memorable thing in the movie. Saving the distances, it’s almost like your own toilet moment in ‘Mandy‘. Nicolas Cage more than proves that he is worth every penny he charges.
Scratching on its surface, ‘Willy’s Wonderland’ also keeps a very interesting rural horror story, subgenre that is back in fashion and that the next ‘Wrong Turn: Path to Hell‘, which we will talk about soon, is a good example. In this case, despite the fact that as a whole it can accuse its ups and downs and the narrative bumps of a proposal that needed a greater investment, ‘Willy’s Wonderland’ is a mischief that will conquer the public most in need of worship.
‘Willy’s Wonderland’ arrives as an exclusive Movistar + premiere on July 4.
