Nicholas Cage is always unpredictable in his choice of films, they are even the worst you can lay your eyes on or pretty decent. In The Trust we have to concur this is on the better side of the scale.

Bad Lieutenant meets Lethal Weapon in this blackly-comic buddy cop thriller. Nicolas Cage (Leaving Las Vegas, Kick-Ass) delivers his best performance in years as a nihilistic cop who teams with a reluctant young officer played by Elijah Wood (Maniac, Sin City) to stage a big money heist.
In a department full of sleaze and corruption, Las Vegas cops Jim Stone (Nicolas Cage) and David Waters (Elijah Wood) form an unlikely team as they begin an off-the-books investigation into a bailed heroin dealer.
Discovering the dealer’s huge underground safe beneath an apartment building, they hatch a plan into the safe for their own ends…
