Becky and I went to see The Wicker Man on Tuesday at the Galaxy Neonopolis 11 theaters in Las Vegas, Nevada with Becky’s Mom. This movie has been out for a long time and we were surprised to see it was still showing, but we decided to check it out. The Fandango website at The Wicker Man describes the movie as follows:
“A sheriff (Nicolas Cage) investigates a young girl’s mysterious disappearance on a remote island off the coast of Maine. The community tells him the girl never existed. He continues his search, and is led into a web of deceit and pagan rituals.”
The Wicker Man is a very strange flick that takes you into a bizarre community that is out of touch with the modern world. It story takes place on this private island where women rule and men follow their every direction, as they all worship and serve the nature goddess.
Yep, it’s pretty whacked! However, it’s also interesting and surprising as the audience follows a former police officer, Nicholas Cage, on a wild journey to try to locate a young missing girl that he saw in a burning vehicle.
The Wicker Man is not a great movie by any stretch, but it kept our interest and made us wonder what was happening or going to happen. It all leads to a very surprising, disturbing and shocking ending.
I don’t think any of us liked the movie enough to say that it was the price of admission, but it should make a pretty good rental. It should be coming to the video store racks fairly soon, so be on the lookout.
