"Season of the Witch" Movie Trailer Review

For the most part, Nicolas Cage’s acting roles have been sub-par for the past few years. Most of his films have garnered mixed to poor reviews and he’s starred in bombs such as "Ghost Rider" and "The Wicker Man." His presence in "Season of the Witch" is not a boon for the film.

After returning from the Crusades, Lavey (Cage) is ordered to take a supposed witch to a far off abbey. It appears that she has brought some kind of curse upon the land and the monks at the abbey will break it.

Cage seems out of place in this film. It’s a supernatural action film set in the 14th century and he doesn’t click with the material presented in the trailer. At this point, he looks miscast in his role as a knight. That isn't to say he’s terrible in the trailer, but he’s not very good in it, either. Luckily, the rest of the cast seems fine in their roles and it’s nice to see Ron Perlman on the roster.

The trailer doesn’t fully explain the premise of the plot, but it does show enough to get audiences interested. It has a brooding atmosphere and action that doesn’t look to be too bloody (not necessarily a good or a bad thing). "Season of the Witch" appear that it will be a film worthy of viewing at a matinee showing at the least.

The movie opens March 19, 2010.

    Somehow I am not surprised to see Nic Cage in this. They mean, literally a witch. Hmmmm. So all those witch-hunters were right. There WERE witches and they needed to be killed.
