Academy Award® winner Nicolas Cage stars as Joe, a hard-living ex-con who is the unlikeliest of role models. But when he meets a troubled 15-year-old homeless boy (Tye Sheridan) desperately in need of help, Joe is faced with the heartbreaking choice of redemption or ruin.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The film belongs to Cage. You can feel his compassion as Joe defies the reduced options of his life. There's not an unfelt moment in Cage's performance. Or in the movie.
Fresh: For Nicolas Cage, whose dumb, rant-for-hire projects have lately been making audiences forget how good he can be, Joe is more than a rescue - it's a re-birth.
Fresh: If you've missed Nicolas Cage and the special qualities he brings to movies, "Joe" is a good place to get reacquainted.
Fresh: Poulter's intensity matches Cage's, note for note. The frightening verisimilitude of his portrayal lends the film a cinema verite realism that nicely mutes some of Cage's star power.
Great performance from Nic Cage, and most definitely his best film since Bad Lieutenant. The storyline itself is gripping and keeps you interested till the very end. A must see for any fan of Nic Cage or thriller/drama films with a twist. A must see!
Really great. Worth seeing.
You have to pay attention to understand the slang dialogue. Mostly the actors mumble, slur their words and don't talk in complete sentences. But you can follow along if you try. Our hero is not as great as your average man but in this movie he is the boss.
Good movie. ALMOST forgot that it was Cage that I was watching. 'Heroic' gesture. Rock on, Nic!
