Rattling The Cage #4 – Snake Eyes [Podcast]

The Movie: Snake Eyes (1998)

We’ve been talking about what we perceived as the Nicolas Cage action movie phase of the 90’s and it turns out, that’s not quite what Snake Eyes is. Caroline and Dylan are a house divided as we try to figure out whether Snake Eyes is campy fun or a slog that doesn’t know how to do what it’s trying to do.
