Not sophisticated just good - Con Air review by JD

Spoiler Alert
03/02/2015

The genre is feel-good escapist action. The acting is superb (especially Malkovich), the plot is complex enough to carry you through, though it is a bit super macho at times.There is the odd joke (bosses car tied to a plane), the romantic angle covers all target audiences. Pretty much an all round film (for all except sophisticated).

Top Action Film - Con Air review by GI

Spoiler Alert
22/02/2022

Pure adrenaline rush action and a film that is so preposterous it's brilliant. The whole thing is such great entertainment and it's the ultimate example of cinema where there's nothing pretentious or meaningful its simply there for you to sit back and have a great time. So if you've never seen this then it's one to check out because its a riot. Nicolas Cage, in arguably his best film, is former ex soldier Cameron Poe, who killed a man defending his wife and ends up in jail for manslaughter. Eight years later he is paroled and is looking forward to reuniting with his wife and daughter, who he has never seen. To get home he joins a prison transport plane on it's way to transfer dangerous prisoners to other parts of the country including some of the most dangerous. But led by Cyrus The Virus (John Malkovich) the prisoners have a clever plan to take over the plane and escape. Poe decides he has to foil their plans. With a great support cast that includes John Cusack, Ving Rhames, Steve Buscemi and Colm Meaney this film rollicks along at a great pace, has a thoroughly daft macho script ("Put the bunny back in the box"), plenty of humour, explosions, chases, gun battles and ends with a massive set piece chase in Las Vegas. You'll never have as much fun watching a film as this one.
