Cinemax, Astro Ch 412, 11pm
Please don’t judge this movie by the many misses that its star Nicholas Cage has been associated with. Cage kills it in this movie about a detective, Rick Santoro (Cage) who never plays by the rules. Rick attends a high-profile boxing match with his friend Navy Cmdr. Kevin Dunne (Gary Sinise) and Defense Secretary Kirkland (Joel Fabiani). But things go crazy when Kirkland is assassinated. The arena is on lockdown but somehow key witness Julia Costello (Carla Gugino) escapes. Rick begins to get the feeling that Kirkland’s death is part of a larger conspiracy that involves boxing rivals and a beautiful stranger. Always a beautiful stranger. Still, the movie is well made and well worth a Saturday night in.
