Here we go, yet another low budget, crank-it-out-in-a-few-weeks Nicolas Cage movie, and if you forgot about it that's cool, because it's hard to keep track of his prolific, if unselective, output. The latest? "The Frozen Ground," a based on a true story tale with Cage as a cop, tracking down bad guy John Cusack, with Vanessa Hudgens playing a prostitute. Obviously.

The Frozen Ground Nicolas Cage Vanessa Hudgens

Here we go, yet another low budget, crank-it-out-in-a-few-weeks Nicolas Cage movie, and if you forgot about it that's cool, because it's hard to keep track of his prolific, if unselective, output. The latest? "The Frozen Ground," a based on a true story tale with Cage as a cop, tracking down bad guy John Cusack, with Vanessa Hudgens playing a prostitute. Obviously. 

And as you might guess, the trailer for the movie looks typically generic and bland, playing out pretty much like any other straight-to-DVD crime flick/procedural. Anyway, Cage stars as the Alaskan detective Glenn Flothe, who tries to bring down serial killer Robert Hansen (Cusack) and finally gets the opportunity after a 17-year-old (Hudgens) escapes from the killer and provides key information. But as these things usually go, The Cops Won't Listen and Cage is forced to Take The Law Into His Own Hands. Yawn.

Surprise, surprise this is going VOD on August 23rd, the same day it drops into (probably a small handful) of theaters.
