Cage plays a protective father who has been out of his criminal life since his wife passed away, and completely falls apart when his daughter (Caitlyn) goes missing, presumably kidnapped. Cage has to go back to his criminal lifestyle in order to solve the mystery of Caitlyn's disappearance. blah, blah, blah.

I went into this movie thinking that it would be a Trespass-esque Cage movie with the ironic hilarity of Wicker Man, and I couldn't be more happy to be disappointed. Nicolas Cage pulls out all of the stops for Rage. His Cage-isms, as I call them, are still present, but they are within the context of his character losing his mind as a desperate father; there were many times in the movie where my mouth was agape, mostly because if I were to watch Wicker Man and see this type of freakout, I would be on the floor laughing, peeing my pants. That is not the case in this movie.

Everyone else gives a stellar performance, which from the trailer you cannot tell at all. Every character, including Cage, is grounded in the Universe that this takes place and nobody steals the show more than another person.

When I recommend Nic Cage movies, I will recommend this movie over Face/Off hands down.

Nicolas Cage does a good job in this gangster/goodfellow action thriller.
It was a 3 star movie up untill the ending...TWISTED,...%$@#$%$%*, very emotional, for those of us, who are fathers!
The production quality was a smige low for a Nicolas Cage film ,..but hardly detracted from the overall plot.
I enjoyed the whole movie right up to...THE END !
Nicolas Cage is winning me over as a fan!

Rage is the right name for the viewer, "Revenge" would be more appropriate for the movie. I am very grateful to be able to watch this at home, as if I'd been in the cinema I would likely have mist the plot, and come away deaf.
I do not know who engineered this but the sound is lousy. I had to crank it up each time to hear the dialogue, but when the music, and effects (i.e. explosions, & gun fire) it was so loud my house rattled. The volume balance is out of whack, else is would have been at least entertaining.
Sorry Mr. Cage you need a better crew.

Hey, look: forgive me if I don’t want to be the one to tell you to put the latest Nicolas Cage effort back on the video store shelf where you picked it up. By now, you ought to know that if you haven’t heard of it, then it very well may not be worth your investment. Try as it might, RAGE certainly never shows all that much rage; and as the actor’s shooting star continues to plummet through the atmosphere with successively smaller features this flick is marginally tolerable.

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and/or characters. If you’re the type of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I’d encourage you to skip down to the last three paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you’re accepting of a few modest hints at ‘things to come,’ then read on …)

From the product packaging: “Paul Maguire (Academy Award winner Nicholas Cage, LEAVING LAS VEGAS) is a respectable businessman and loving father living a peaceful life … until his violent past comes back to haunt him. When his teenage daughter is taken from their home, Paul rounds up his old crew to help him find her … by any means necessary. His search for justice leads Paul down a dark and bloody path of revenge, betrayal and long buried secrets.”

Here’s the thing about crime thrillers: even the most used and re-used ideas can be elevated to the level of ‘watchable’ so long as the film is given some worthwhile or unique cinematography. (Isn’t that what Martin Scorsese teaches us?) If you don’t have a compelling vision with which to keep the audience interested in roads so well-traveled they’re now available on Google Maps, then you’ve no one else to blame BUT the creative crew for the resulting boredom.

What can one say about Nicholas Cage, but he just has that magical touch to carry just about each movie he's in. Add a great story with lot's of twists, a surrounding cast that's outstanding, lot's of gunfire (LOL!!! Oh, Hollywood, how you so need to have violence in a movie to name it a hit...) and a moral lesson (Again, Hollywood thinks everything great in a movie has to have a moral value laden into it... Not so, but that's a long personal opinion diatribe that doesn't belong in this critique of this film or on My Own Amazon Film's Opinion Share... See too many doing this and I personally hate it... Sorry.). Yup, rage gets anyone in trouble in the simplistic form of the Sin, but there's more to it. This film pulled off the "What happens if..." one's rage tries to resolve problems and succeeds. Great job all who contributed to this film.

Unrelentingly harrowing, bleak. Not a false note anywhere. Cage and his bride are equally fascinating to watch. The outcome of this movie will make many viewers feel STUPID, "I should have seen this coming." But I think it's a beautifully perfect ending. The meaning is clear and should serve as a warning to all: ONCE YOU ENTER A LIFE OF CRIME, IT FOLLOWS YOU FOREVER. THIS TRAGEDY WAS HIS OWN FAULT.
