Sympathy for the Devil is a compact thriller that makes best use of the few locations and actors that it’s got. It also makes the incredibly wise choice of hiring Nicolas Cage, dialling him up to 8 on the Cage-o-meter, and just letting him go for 90 minutes.
Sisu doesn’t truck with subtlety. Don’t be tricked by its Finnish origins and beautiful vistas. This is shock and gore. There’s a history lesson in there, but mostly you’ll be whooping as yet another Nazi explodes into a column of entrails.
