Critic Reviews of "Dying Of The Light"RogerEbert.comDecember 05, 2014
"Dying of the Light" is a shrill and bombastic slog, with an all-over-the-map collection of tones that never cohere into a credible or compelling vision.NPRDecember 05, 2014
The rushed and often inchoate execution means there's little in the film that gets the benefit of more than a moment's reflection.VarietyDecember 05, 2014
A weirdly misshapen, fitfully intriguing depiction of one man's wayward quest for justice, plainly compromised in ways that only a director's cut could properly illuminate.New York TimesDecember 04, 2014
On a commercial level, "Dying of the Light" sometimes plays as just another high-concept vehicle for a comically overacting Mr. Cage. But Mr. Schrader's vision is strong enough to rage against the hackier calculations.Los Angeles TimesDecember 04, 2014
Cage's loop-di-loop performance, the movie's surviving asset, at least hints at the themes of institutional illness and mortal decline that must have fascinated Schrader.AV ClubDecember 04, 2014
It plays out as a more or less conventional direct-to-video-style thriller, distinguished by a handful of subtexts and images that might have been developed in a different version, but here register as mere quirks.Epoch TimesMay 22, 2016
It's just not that bad, especially compared to some of the recent gems in the Cage filmography. Frankly, it probably doesn't even crack the bottom 20.The Film StageMarch 02, 2016
It's a film full of Cage at his wide-eyed, extreme intensity, but many of the scenes seem to lose the process that made them.Movie ChambersFebruary 27, 2015
Not much good to say except "Cage, Cage against the dying of the light." Apologies to Dylan Thomas.HeyUGuysJanuary 16, 2015
despite all the formulaic flaws and re-workings of Schrader's original artistic vision, Cage steals the show.Movie TalkJanuary 11, 2015
Nicolas Cage wigs out again as an unhinged CIA agent in this espionage thriller, but this time it's his ragged prosthetic ear rather than his hairpiece that grabs the viewer's attention.Independent (UK)January 07, 2015
The plotting doesn't make much sense but Cage gives a typically flamboyant and uneven performance as the stubborn old agent.
