Movie Review: Pig (2021)

You need to watch this movie! On paper, it doesn’t seem interesting, but in execution it is magnificent. Nicholas Cage shows the world his talent as an actor as he searches Portland for his missing pig. The plot of this movie is a lot more tame version of John Wick. Do not let the tame and subdued tone this movie takes dissuade you; it tells a very thrilling story. It is an exciting and engaging story, and Nick Cage doesn’t even throw a single punch.

The acting in this movie is great, resulting in some very moving and emotional scenes. A bit of warning, this movie is quiet. There is a lot of silence, but it is used effectively to create tension and suspense. If you are not at the edge of your seat through this whole ordeal, we didn’t watch the same movie.

If you have Hulu, watch it now! You won’t regret it.

  1. Thank you very much for this recommendation. This sounds like a great movie. I like Nicholas Cage, and so I am looking forward to this.

    Also, thank you very much for “liking” my February 4 Blog post on Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and the Big Bopper. Buddy Holly has been my favorite musician ever since I heard my father listening to one of his records in the 1970s. I am very happy to meet another fan.


  2. Wow, this looks great, but maybe too sad for me. I love pigs so much. My favorite books are about pigs, “The Good Good Pig” by Sy Montgomery (a true story); and “The Christmas Pig” by Kinky Friedman (a beautiful fable which should be a movie!)

  3. Nicolas cage is a great actor. The first time I remember seeing him is when I was a kid growing up back in the eighties with Fast Times At Ridgemont High, Valley Girl, Raising Arizona, Moonstruck- later on came Face off.

    I was a movie buff to and use to record movies from cable to VHS and had people coming to me to borrow tapes! These people were grown and I was just a kid. Those were the good old days.

    They don’t make a lot of excellent or good movies as they use to.

    I have never seen Pig, however, from your review I am inspired to check it out. I heard about it on line earlier in the year but never looked into it.

    Thanks for your reviews.

    I still like to watch a good movie from time to time and get so disappointed when I relax to watch a film only to have wasted moments viewing something horrible, boring or just downright silly.
