Nicolas Cage is the star we all grew up watching. For the action kid junkie of the nineties, he was right up there, after Bruce Willis. The man with a cool demeanour and an unparalleled swagger. Coming from the illustrious Coppola family, Nicolas started off with smaller roles but soon went to star in some of the huge blockbusters. His unconventional choice of movies paid off, making him as one of the highest paid stars. He played the action star, the convict, the self assuring madman, everything with same élan. Then came the downfall. Over the last few years, Nicolas Cage has acted in more shitty movies than anyone else. His recent choice of movies has been atrocious and if one believes the grapevines, it’s probably due to his growing debts. All said and done, Nicholas Cage is a fine actor and capable of conjuring a great performance anytime. So while we wait for his next great act unfold on the screen, here is the list of top 10 Nicholas Cage movies.
10. National Treasure (2004)
One of the most watched cinematic adventure on screen, it is about stealing the Declaration of Independence of the United States of America to find an elusive treasure that remains hidden in plain sight. Nicholas played the character of Ben Gates, whose family has been entrusted with the secret of the treasure by one of the founding fathers. Along with Dianne Lane, he goes on a rocking adventure to stop the treasure from being stolen. Part history, part fiction and a whole lot of fun, that’s what ‘National Treasure’ is all about.
9. Con Air (1997)
