Best Nicolas Cage movies, ranked! From Kick-Ass to Con Air

Nicolas Cage is many things: a Hollywood legend, a Coppola, a meme, a guy who named his first-born son after Superman’s alien persona Kal-El. He’s an actor known for never really turning down a role, and also giving some of the most over-the-top performances that cinema has ever seen (described by critics as ‘Cage Rage’). Though Cage has a reputation for starring in some pretty bad movies, he’s actually a pretty brilliant actor whose skills truly shine in dark dramatic films – and ones that don’t take themselves too seriously.

The actor plays a fictionalized version of himself in The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, which finds him on the brink of retirement before accepting one last gig that involves spending time with a Cage-obsessed billionaire (Pedro Pascal) – who ends up being a lot more dangerous than he could have ever imagined.
