Time Out

Tom Huddleston

Cage barks, emotes and swears inappropriately, ably backed by Perlman as his burly sidekick, and the cast is padded out with the likes of Christopher Lee as a devious, hideously scarred cardinal.‘Season of the Witch’ is not for everyone: it’s creaky, predictable and frequently idiotic. But for a tipsy Saturday night, this should tick all the right boxes.

What on earth is Nicolas Cage doing roaming the cardboard cutout sets of Season of the Witch?

The Sunday Times

Edward Porter

Fans of Nicolas Cage’s hammier excursions will see a missed opportunity in Dominic Sena’s film, which casts the uninhibited star as a shaggy-haired medieval knight, only to have him give an ordinary performance... more Dungeons & Dragons than Tolkien.

Peter Bradshaw

It's entertaining in a cheerfully ridiculous way, though Cage fans will be disappointed that he does not really lose his rag, despite some serious provocation from the Lord of Darkness.

The stench of plague is all around, unless that’s an aroma emanating from the script.
