THROWBACK MOVIE: RAGE


The 2014 movie Rage was about three close pals- Paul Maguire, Kane and Danny Doherty (Nicolas Cage, Max Ryan, McGrady) who were mobsters in the past. When Paul and his friends hit a lot of money, Paul told his boss Frances “Frank” O’Connell (Peter Stormare) that he wanted to go legit and Frank permitted him.

Before the trio repented of their criminal acts, they intercepted a Russian hoodlum who wanted to go give his boss and brother- Chernov (Pasha D. Lychnikoff) a briefcase containing a huge amount of money. They stole the money from him and killed him afterwards.


Years after, Paul was already running a business of his own and married to a beautiful lady- Vanessa (Rachel Nichols) who has no kids for him, though Paul has a teenage daughter- Caitlin

Just when Paul was starting to enjoy his family and his new way of life, something tragic befell him. While at a charity dinner with his wife, he got a call from Detective Peter St. John (Danny Glover)who told him his daughter had been kidnapped. The police searched for Caitlin but when they eventually found her, she was already dead.


Paul felt his past came back to haunt him. This made Paul go back to his gangster life. He searched all nook and cranny just to catch and deal with the person behind his daughter’s death. Paul and his two pals suspected mob boss- Chernov of killing Caitlin since it was his money they stole some years back.

Paul went bizarre trying to capture his daughter’s killers. In the process of searching for the killers, he got furious with friends and families. It dented his marriage and he even went as far as killing his pal- Danny. Meanwhile, Chernov already killed Kane because Paul and his friends killed a lot of his men and were responsible for his brother’s death. Paul realized Chernov wasn’t his daughter’s killer. When Paul finally found out who killed his daughter, he was dazed as the person was the least person he expected. Paul had already lost all in his rage.
