Sympathy For The Devil – Movie Review

Cage is totally off the leash in Sympathy for the Devil.

The film “Sympathy for the Devil” features a dynamic collaboration between two talented actors, Nicolas Cage and Joel Kinnaman. Cage has a reputation for having versatile acting skills. He has delivered unforgettable performances across various genres throughout his illustrious career. In recent years, he has made a major comeback with movies like “Renfield” and “The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent.” His on-screen presence always leaves a lasting impact. Kinnaman, best known for his role as Rick Flagg in the Suicide Squad films, is equally talented. He easily brings captivating energy to every film that he is in. The movie is by director Yuval Adler and writer Luke Paradise and will be in theaters on July 28th, 2023.


After being forced to drive a mysterious passenger at gunpoint, a man finds himself in a high-stakes game of cat and mouse where it becomes clear that not everything is as it seems.

The movie “Sympathy for the Devil” directed by Yuval Adler is a thrilling and emotionally charged journey. Adler skillfully weaves the complex themes of humanity, morality, and redemption. It leaves the audience pondering the blurred lines between good and evil. The film successfully delves into the depths of the human psyche, making it a fascinating cinematic experience.

Joel Kinnaman’s performance in the movie is impressive. He effortlessly embodies his character and pulls the audience into the story’s heart. Nicolas Cage, on the other hand, steals the show with his wildly entertaining performance. His presence adds an undeniable allure to the film, reminding us why he is always worth watching on the big screen.

Although “Sympathy for the Devil” is a decent thriller, it falls somewhat short of perfection. While the intense narrative and stellar performances keep the audience engaged, there are moments where the plot feels predictable. Some character arcs could have been further explored but that is all part of the allure. Nevertheless, the film’s strengths lie in its powerful themes and the chemistry between Cage and Kinnaman, making it a compelling watch for fans of psychological thrillers and those who appreciate the talents of these two exceptional actors.


I give Sympathy for the Devil 3.5 out of 5 stars. It is a film that showcases the legendary Nicolas Cage, who has been delivering over-the-top performances throughout his entire career. Fans of Cage will be highly satisfied. Read more Reviews on Nerdtropolis and Subscribe to our YouTube.
