Army of One

By on December 14, 2017

Though it’s more amusing than funny, more bizarre than quirky, and presents a real-life oddball who doesn’t merit 93 minutes of an audience’s time, Nicolas Cage almost makes this loony film work.

Cage has  successfully channeled the real Gary Faulkner’s peculiar persona, and he’s fully committed himself to this role, the first after a long acting drought in which he’s starred only in forgettable shoot-em-ups and crime stories. Army of One is an uneven movie. The first half with its budding, sweet romance between two lost souls and Faulkner’s early efforts to get his mission going is promising. When Gary gets to Pakistan, however, it becomes repetitious and ludicrous.
