Running with the Devil is another generic drug trafficking thriller that embraces clichés, and has the chance to get Nicolas Cage’s time and ability in the Running with the Devil cast. Former Navy SEAL Jason Cabell ties the dots and moves the uncertainty ahead like he’s directing highway traffic in his debut picture as a writer-director and he doesn’t spend any time getting right to the brutality for genre enthusiasts.
A nude guy is carried from the floor of a toilet to a platform, doused with gasoline, and burnt alive, two prostitutes in the lair of a ruthless drug lord known only as “The Man” overdose on crack and are carried away to Potter’s Field. But who plays them in the Running with the Devil cast?
“I can’t wake them up,” a young girl tells her school bus driver, her aunt, dubbed “The Agent in Charge,” is a federal narcotics investigator who arrives on the scene to discover a house full of deaths. Meanwhile, in Colombia, The Farmer, played by Clifton Collins, Jr in the Running with the Devil cast, a poor guy who collects cocoa leaves and sells them for $1,600 a kilogram, runs into difficulty with his current shipment.
