That's some claim, too. Cage has been in some strange roles throughout his stellar career.
In this latest flick, the 57-year-old plays a martial artist called Wylie who must help some soldiers battle and alien enemy that arrives on earth every six years to take on the world's Jiu-Jitsu masters.
Yes, that does sound quite strange, to be honest with you.
It's based on a comic of the same name, and it's streaming onNetflix right now if you want to go check it out.
In fact, it's currently in fourth spot on the most popular films on the platform, and fifth most popular out of everything on Netflix.
There have been a few conflicting reviews, with some viewers thinking it's awesome, others hating it entirely, and a third category claiming that it is 'so bad it's good'.
The one thing that they can all agree on, however, is that it's -well - quite something.

If you want another weird trip with Nicolas Cage, watch his movie Jiu Jitsu.- Morrigan Begin Again (@throughthefrogs) February 16, 2021
It's like a big budget film blew all of its money on his salary and was finished by high school seniors
One viewer wrote: "I just watched Jiu Jitsu, the movie with Nic Cage, and... wow. That was a thing that happened,"
Another said: "New Nic Cage movie called Jiu Jitsu? You better believe I'm watching that nonsense,"
A third said: "Jiu Jitsu only got a 2.9 on IMDb but it is such stupid fun. Excessive choreography. Crappy effects. Turbo space ninjas.
"Nic Cage the jiu-jitsu master. Doom-esque first-person sequence. This movie made me smile today. Nothing else has.. and that sounds really sad. Watch Jiu Jitsu,"

Watching Nicolas Cage fight an alien using only the power of jiu jitsu is just another level of incredible.- Voltaire (@VolareVols) March 27, 2021
The synopsis for the movie reads: "After the defeat of a celebrated war hero, an ancient order of fighters battles powerful space invaders as the fate of humanity hangs in the balance."
What's not to love about that, right?
