  • Willy's Wonderland isn't quite as much fun as its premise would suggest -- but it's still got Nicolas Cage beating the hell out of bloodthirsty animatronics, which is nice.

    The result? Nearly 90 minutes of wordless Cage beating fluffy mascots with broom handles while hard rock plays on the soundtrack. It could be ironic commentary. Or an art-film stunt. But it's mostly agony.

    It is one gag...and for me, that's a short film, rather than a feature.

    I love the movies that thrill us without asking for too much of our time. Lewis had this entire film planned-shot for shot, reel for reel-and it shows an intent to entertain.

    Willy's Wonderland is a vicious funny little horror film that allows Cage to chew the scenery, collect his paycheck and entertain the audience all at once.

    It works because it's so goofy and so insane, and with Nicolas Cage behind it... it's over the top and fun.

    Willy's Wonderland is a total blast from start to finish. Funny, furiously violent, and with one of the coolest Cage performances this side of Mandy.
