Movie Reviews

  • while purists might grumble that Prisoners of the Ghostland is not as bold or 'out there' as Sono's previous work, it is an excellent introduction to the director for anyone who hasn't dipped into his filmography
    by Hannah Woodhead [Little White Lies ]
  • ultimately, Prisoners of the Ghostland is an OK film by a great filmmaker who has made truly great films, most memorable for its cast and the fact he finally made an English-language movie
    by Richard Whittaker [Austin Chronicle ]
  • the production design is absolutely incredible; The impressive fight choreography gorgeously captures the abundant violence; If you like Westerns, martial arts, Japanese cinema, Nicolas Cage, or anything weird AF, then this is certainly for you
    4 of 5 by Lorry KIkta [Film Threat ]
  • Renegade Japanese auteur Sion Sono and totally normal American actor Nicolas Cage make some beautiful nonsense together
    Review rate : B- by David Ehrlich [IndieWire ]
  • destined to be quickly forgotten, it would need to play a hardcore genre festival to find an appreciative audience of any size
    by John DeFore [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • combine those visuals with Chieko Matsumoto’s costumes and some pretty creative facial makeup, and Sono has effectively guaranteed that we’ll always have something interesting to look at, even as the brain struggles for meaning
    by Peter Devruge [Variety ]
  • a cinematic hadron collider of Sion Sono and Nicolas Cage - the result is uncompromising, unafraid. Vibrant, hyper-stylised and unadulterated in the extreme, this is pure action cinema at its best
    4 of 5 by Ty Cooper [HeyUGuys ]
  • "Prisoners of the Ghostland" does not disappoint; the picture's pure unpredictability is consistently entertaining; it may not be Sono's best work, but it absolutely hits the spot if you're in the mood for something hypnotically berserk
    3 of 4 by Mike McGranaghan [Aisle Seat ]
