Director: Shawn Ku; Cast: Nicolas Cage, Benjamin Bratt, Noah Le Gros, Karolina Wydra
Cage plays a critically ill convict who is released from prison after 19 years for a crime that he did not commit. Looking for revenge against his old mob boss, he “reunites” with his estranged son along the way. A Score to Settle is a heavily clichéd comedic drama with a lot less action than one might expect. Despite the inclusion of a twist ending, there is not much here to merit a second viewing nor were any scores really settled (Klaus Ming October 2019).
