Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Dvds - Stars: Ni­co­las Cage, Am­ber Heard Di­rec­tor: Pa­trick Lussier Avail­able: Now on DVD and BD

Just when you think Ni­co­las Cage couldn’t go any lower in ca­reer terms and wheeeeeee . . . down he goes! This time he stars as a tough-guy crim who has es­caped from hell ( yep, se­ri­ously) to stop the sa­tanic cult that killed his daugh­ter from sac­ri­fic­ing his grand­daugh­ter. Sigh. It’s try­hard ‘‘ ex­ploita­tion’’ with some good ideas that are never ex­plored, but it’s not re­ally up to the task and far too pre­oc­cu­pied with hav­ing things fly at the screen – ob­vi­ously done with 3D in mind.

Ex­tras: ★ Fea­turette on the car­nage Cage’s char­ac­ter causes plus a minute of deleted scenes.
