Synopsis

Nicolas Cage is on manic form as a degenerate New Orleans cop whose back injury leads him into a spiral of drug dependency and borderline lunacy. Tracking down the gangsters responsible for murdering a local family, his methods become increasingly erratic as his habit gets him in deep with both the mob and his suspects. Supposedly a remake of Abel Ferrara's 1992 crime drama Bad Lieutenant - with which it has virtually nothing in common ? Herzog's delightfully deranged crime drama is a wild ride into the unraveling life of Cage's crazed cop with a career best performance from the Face/Off maverick.
