Prisoners of the Ghostland

MOVIE SHORT REVIEW

ENGLISH REVIEW

Nicolas Cage and Japanese auteur director Sion Sono team up in the unique Prisoners of the Ghostland. Cage plays the nameless ‘Hero’, a criminal offered freedom by Bill Moseley’s Governor of Samurai Town in exchange for rescuing his ‘granddaughter’ – played by the underused Sofia Boutella – who has been taken to the dangerous wasteland known as Ghostland. The post-apocalyptic setting is visually appealing, and elements of Mad Max can be seen in the Ghostland and its deranged inhabitants. The movie does not live up to its potential, however, as the lack of intensity and slow pacing leave the viewer feeling unfulfilled. The hero is made to wear a leather suit with explosives, some of which are on his testicles, but this fails to create tension. Despite occasional intriguing moments, Prisoners of the Ghostland is ultimately disappointing.

SPANISH REVIEW

Nicolas Cage y el director de autor japon√©s Sion Sono se unen en Prisoners of the Ghostland. Cage interpreta al ‘H√©roe’ sin nombre, un criminal al que el gobernador de Samurai Town de Bill Moseley ofrece la libertad a cambio de rescatar a su ‘nieta’, interpretada por la infrautilizada Sofia Boutella, que ha sido llevada al peligroso p√°ramo conocido como Ghostland. El entorno postapocal√≠ptico es visualmente atractivo, y se pueden ver elementos de Mad Max en Ghostland y sus habitantes trastornados. Sin embargo, la pel√≠cula no est√° a la altura de su potencial, ya que la falta de intensidad y el ritmo lento dejan al espectador sinti√©ndose insatisfecho. Se hace que el h√©roe use un traje de cuero con explosivos, algunos de los cuales est√°n en sus test√≠culos, pero esto no logra crear tensi√≥n. A pesar de los momentos intrigantes ocasionales, Prisoners of the Ghostland es finalmente decepcionante.
