Bringing out he Dead touches on subjects that deal with down-and-out
people. Nicolas Cage plays Frank Pierce, an E.M. ambulance driver
who picks up 911 calls off NYC's alleys, dingy apartment buildings,
and scummy neighborhoods.
This movie brings home the grim reality
pretty fast. You won't like what you're seeing, and won't feel
But I found this film very entertaining
and enjoyed the many characters with all their many stories.
Nicolas Cage plays a paramedic working
the graveyard shift in NYC. He must deal with cardiac arrest,
drug overdoses, and an occasional childbirth, but it also means
dealing with the ghosts of those he could not save.
He's sleep deprived and uses alcohol and
caffeine to stay alive--no wonder he's hallucinating!
Directed well, but to what end? Midnight
to dawn in the City is as seedy as it gets.
Bringing out the Dead is a hair-raising story of a NYC paramedic who's
haunted by the image of a girl he couldn't save.
The star struggles to maintain his sanity
through a busy, bloody three-day graveyard weekend shift.
The characters in this picture are very
shocking, and almost all seemed to need some kind of therapy--either
mental or medical.
There are serious questions about life.
The movie is about mercy killing.
Nicolas Cage shows off his entire range
as an actor--from wild man to sensitive soul--a great talent!
