Nicolas Cage fights a martial artist alien invader in the bonkers Jiu Jitsu trailer

2 min read

If you want a tagline for a movie that is off the wall bonkers, all you need to do is include the lines, “Starring Nicolas Cage” and you’ve probably given audiences all they need about just how crazy the film is going to be. In true Nic Cage fashion, this new trailer for the upcoming film Jiu Jitsu madly combines elements of science fiction, cyberpunk, fantasy and Jiu-jitsu in name only, resulting the following combination of insanity.

Jiu Jitsu sees Cage, and his really big sword, star as Wylie. The warrior rescues a Jiu-Jitsu fighter named Jake Barnes (Alain Moussi) from an ancient order to fight off alien invaders and save the world. Yes, you read that correctly. I don’t think I could’ve made up a plot crazier if I tried. Don’t believe me though? You can see for yourself in the trailer below:

Every six years, an ancient order of expert Jiu Jitsu fighters faces a vicious race of alien invaders in a battle for Earth. For thousands of years, the fighters that protect Earth have won…until now. When celebrated war hero Jake Barnes (Alain Moussi) is defeated by Brax, the indomitable leader of the invaders, the future of humanity hangs in the balance. Injured and suffering from amnesia, Jake is rescued by Wylie (Nicolas Cage), Keung and his team of fellow Jiu Jitsu fighters. They must help Jake to regain his strength in order to band together and defeat Brax in an epic battle that will once again determine the fate of mankind.

You’ve got to hand it to Cage, his films are the gift that keeps on giving. Movies like this might not be good, but they are certainly bound to give you plenty of awkward laughs, keep you entertained and as for the case with this movie, there are loads of great fighting and action that could make up for its rather ludicrous plot.

Jiu Jitsu is directed by Dimitri Logothetis, who also recently rebooted the Kickboxer franchise with Kickboxer: Retaliation , a film that is equally filled with crazy ideas and fighting. That’s all I can say about it really. This movie promises to be far more ambitious in its outlandish ideas than that film ever was though. And joining them in the crazy are supporting actors Tony Jaa, Frank Grillo, and Juju Chan.

Jiu Jitsu is scheduled for release on November 20th.

        I wonder if the Wicker Man broke him? I don’t think he’s a bad actor per se, but he has made some weird movie choices, or maybe, his agent secretly hates him or Nickie Cage has a drug habit and this is just a way to pay off the Albanians…?

          Perhaps the pressure of being a leading man is not what he wanted, and he decided to just have fun with it? I don’t know how I would handle the pressures of Hollywood. Ok, maybe I do: https://media2.giphy.com/media/vJRoth71jrfKE/giphy.gif

            I’d probably end up like Shia La Beouf or that retard who played the Flash (whatsisface).

            There was a psychologist on a podcast I listened to a while back who said that the cult of celebrity isn’t necessarily an unnatural thing (because we tend to create hierarchies), but it could be extremely harmful now with social media. In the past, you could be aware of your notoriety or infamy or fame or celebrity, but you could also hide yourself in wilful ignorance – like a King or Chief, oblivious of what lies beyond his castle walls.

            Nowadays, you would be aware of it constantly, and there’s no way that will not have an impact on your mind or how you act… hence that retard who plays the Flash… whatsisface… or Shia La Beouf who is probably going to end up in an asylum soon (unless he moves to Utah and becomes a cabbage farmer)

            I would just need 1 or 2 good roles to get some money, and then “retire” from big budget only coming out to earn more money to buy Warhammer 40K stuff…

            I wonder how many actors say that after their first success, but then the studio dangles a few more dollar carrots in their face, the entourage adds a couple more members, the cocaine fountain gets installed in the mansion and before you know it… it all collapses and you’re in a low-budget movie with Paulie Shore, and Johnny Knoxville… (written and directed by M. Night Shymalalalaladong)

            🙁

            I have to admit though, I’ve never craved Hollywood fame. It would drive me insane if my every move, action, internet post or comment was scrutinised by an audience who gets their jollies from watching me self-immolate and burn up like a tiny asteroid ripping itself apart in our atmosphere.

            I would only want it to put the hypocritical libtards in Hollywood in their place. And to get all that female attention…but yeah, constantly having your life under a microscope would suck. Though, I would then possibly be able to play D&D with Joe Manganiello! Ok, that is the biggest upside…

            I know what you mean though….

            Even G-list celebrities like Will Wheaton have been ruined by Hollywood. The guy is such a wet blanket, and it’s probably because he grew up in that culture. I was watching one of his D&D streams and I couldn’t get passed the fact that he’s such a weak and contemptible creature (especially when he’s supposed to be a geek icon.. hahahahahaha).

            It’s sad when that’s the reaction you get from someone that you don’t even know or will ever interact with. He just oozes … loser.

      Reminds me of that Karate Kid movie with Jaden Smith where they were not even doing Karate. The setting was even in China not Japan.

        This might be a Mandela effect in the making, but I kind of remember that it’s mentioned that his character was taught a little bit of karate in the States, and the bullies called him the Karate Kid as a pejorative.

        lol, what a waste of a movie though – at least we have Cobra Kai now.

        Cobra Kai.. COBRA KAI.. COBRA KAI!!!!
