The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent affords Nicolas Cage the opportunity to play the role of a lifetime: himself.
The famously eccentric actor leads this surreal and giddily funny comedy. Cage plays a fictionalised iteration of himself who is pulled into a surreal Spanish odyssey involving covert operations, a super-fan wielding a script (said fan is played by a scene-stealing Pedro Pascal) and lots more besides.
Of course, the history of Nicolas Cage on the big screen is threaded through the delirious events of this movie. Unbearable Weight screened in advance for Cineworld Unlimited members over the Easter Bank Holiday and we've curated some of their reactions that will surely convince you to see it.
Absolutely bonkers and exactly what I expected, such a fun watch. You can never have too much Cage! Was literally this meme through the whole film. Everyone should watch this #MassiveTalent pic.twitter.com/FRBN3CMm7h— Mal Jutley (@maljutley) April 19, 2022
It’s an action packed and wildly entertaining comedy with Nicolas Cage delivering one of his most entertaining performances. His fans certainly will find plenty to enjoy. His friendship with Pedro Pascal is the highlight of the film. pic.twitter.com/c2znSUlaYY— Katie (@katieisafilmfan) April 19, 2022
Such a great fun film, a must for Nicholas Cage fans so many movie references. His chemistry with Pedro was fantastic. I do wonder how far from the real Nicholas Cage this one is. Definitely watching again.— David Evans 🙈🙉🙊 (@dhevans77) April 19, 2022
Very funny. Loads of laugh out load moments. Nick Cage brilliant sport in making such a self-deprecating film.— john flint (@johnflint4) April 19, 2022
It was really great fun, Cage and Pascal make a greet double act 😂⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️— Rich Walker (@whiskeyrich) April 19, 2022
It was so much fun. Nicholas Cage is brilliant, Pedro Pascal has AMAZING chemistry with him and is also brilliant on his own. Definitely one to watch!— nathan! 🎭 (@natjdoc) April 19, 2022
