Some absolute corkers on this list, but it's got to be Face/Off. He delivers a pretty special performance.

I recently watched Mom and Dad, and whilst the film wasn't great, he was amazing in it. I also have a soft spot for National Treasure, and I completely forgot about It Could Happen to You. I remember seeing that quite a lot when I was younger.

Just watched Spider-Verse the other day. He was one of my favourite things in it. Would definitely watch a Noir Spidey film if he voiced it as he does in Spider-Verse.

S: Neither was the last one. It was a robbery. M: Really? S: Yeah. She stole my heart. And my crown. (❍ᴥ❍ʋ)

Yeah he is fantastic in that. As he is not the main character in Spider-verse I didn’t vote for it in this poll.

Con Air, The Rock, Face/off are easily the three best Nic Cage movies.

That bit with the bees is pretty much my reaction to a single hornet being in the house.

Leaving Las Vegas is amazing, and Cage is absolutely brilliant in it. No, honestly.

Yes but it gets marked down because:

1. He doesn’t swap faces with anybody
2. He doesn’t hang out with Sean Connery
3. He doesn’t kill somebody to protect a toy bunny

I voted for the two Ghost Rider films. Yeah, they're not exactly fantastic, but I can forgive that because Ghost Rider. I'd love there to be a third one.

Conair & The Rock obvs, but I have never watched Face/Off, so I voted for Kickass instead.

I vetoed Spiderverse as he is really a cameo in that, now I am wondering if his role in Kickass was big enough for it to have a similar veto

Fans should definitely seek out Mandy, it's a beautiful unicorn of a film that somehow marries 100% pure strain Cage-ian insanity to quality film-making.

He was the best part of Kickass, so it counts.

Also...you've never watched Face/Off? Not entirely sure how to respond to that. I'd suggest watching it this weekend.

Mandy is weird. All those vibrant colours, batshit images flying at your face and give it a slap.

I didn't like it. But... I didn't NOT like it. It's probably the first "Grindhouse" film I've seen in my life. I don't know what to make of it, when the film credits roll I was left bemused. It's a such abrupt film.

Most of Nic Cage's films is bad, but still enjoyable. Face/Off is probably my favourite Cage film.

Are we talking best movie he has appeared in? Or his most Nicolas Cage performance in a movie where Nicolas Cage is an actor?

Best movie is going to be Spiderman but I think there are better people out there to play a noir Spiderman.

His most Nicolas Cage, Anicolas Cage movie...Face-off? Although Con-air is better but he was still developing into the man known as Nicolas Cage then.

It’s peak Cage while also being really good. I loved it, and voted for it here.

Reading these replies, it seems like a few have missed that you can vote for three.

Face/Off is brilliant, Cage is at his most batshit brilliant throughout.

Also its directed by John Woo so there's the typical infinite ammo and doves flying everywhere :lol:

Con Air is his best to me.
