Was maybe cool the problem? Haven't seen it, but had just read a NYTimes review before finding this thread. They called a 14th century story with 21st century cuss words. No criticism of Cage's performance that I recall - except for the lead remark that they'd given up trying to fathom his career choices!

From people who have both read the original script, and seen the movie, it would be interesting to hear a comparison on how much changed over the 6-7 years that the film spent in development.

This is what confounds me...then why does the movie apparently suck balls?

Did someone really look at an awesome script and say "Nope."?

If so, WHY?

If not...then what the hell happened?

James V. Simpson's ARMORED was a Nicholl finalist a few years back; that original script was pretty solid but development pretty much ruined it, turning it into what ended up on screen.

If studios would just buy terrible scripts in the first place, they'd save time and money.

A more satisfactory solution would be to LEAVE THE GOOD SCRIPTS THE F*CK ALONE!

If this is not proof positive that Hollywood doesn't give a single f*ck about product quality, then I don't know what is.

Seriously, Armored was an awesome script. The movie, however, was super-lame. No reason for that at all. None. Not one. Not even a bad one. I just don't get it. At all.

I have a question for those who watched the movie.

******* Spoiler Alert ************

Highlight with your cursor to see the writing:

"Why did the demon/girl kill the first captor (the one she pretended to be his daughter)? When Nicholas Cage realized that the demon wanted to be taken to the monastery, they explained why she killed the 2 men. One (the one eaten by wolves) was because he wanted to kill her before they got to the monastery. What was the reason for the other guy? Was it because he wanted to free her or not go to the monastery? I forget and now it's seriously bugging me!"
Thanks!
