Bad Lieutenant: Port Of Call – New Orleans (or simply Bad Lieutenant as it is being advertised here in the UK) is a 2009 American crime drama directed by Werner Herzog and starring Nicolas Cage. I had only previously been exposed to director Herzog’s work in the 2007 film Rescue Dawn starring Christian Bale, finding it a solid if not spectacular drama. I am also not the biggest fan of Nicolas Cage, although his recent supporting role in Kick-Ass was fantastic. This left me somewhat vague about what to expect here with the late UK release of Bad Lieutenant in 2010.
