About the Movie
Legendary filmmaker Paul Schrader directs this “sordid and engaging crime drama” (The Hollywood Reporter) starring Academy Award® winner Nicolas Cage (Leaving Las Vegas) and Academy Award® nominee Willem Dafoe (Platoon). Ex-cons Troy (Cage), Mad Dog (Dafoe) and Diesel (Christopher Matthew Cook) are hired by an eccentric mob boss to kidnap a baby for a large ransom. When the abduction goes awry, the trio find themselves on the run from the mob and the cops. Vowing to stay out of prison at all costs, getting away with the crime is literally a matter of life and death.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Too often the movie is content to come off like a cranky old uncle who's seen a lot more crime movies than you have.
Rotten: Why watch the nihilistic Dog Eat Dog ... when Schrader has made so many other movies that deal far more tenderly - and equally brutally - with characters of a similar ilk - his criminals, outsiders and losers?
Fresh: Schrader thrusts the amoral ugliness onto the screen in puckishly cold compositions suffused with screechingly acidulous colors.
Fresh: Dog Eat Dog occasionally positions itself as social commentary, but it's mainly a bloody, trippy, bare-fanged pulp thriller featuring terrifically entertaining performances from old dogs Cage and Dafoe.
This film is based on a book
The movie shocked me honestly but it was different and painted a very realo, dark sense of how things are, can be, things go wrong. There is a lot of hookers and drugs throughout but it shows flawed people trying to do flawed things correctly. William Dafoe's character, wow, amazing performance IMHO.
You've been warned
Not worth a penny more than a $0.99 rental on a day when there is nothing on TV
Dog for sure
This movie starts off bad and gets worse minute by minute. As much I like Nicolas Cage and a even creepy Daweirdo they couldn't pull this one off.
Not one thing about this movie has any redeeming value. If you think you feel bad the first 10 to 15 minutes of watching this movie nothing can prepare you for an even worse ending if you make it that far
