A nice surprise

As you may have noticed, I’m not a huge fan of action flicks. I mean, I have nothing against those but if they are only going to show some massive set-pieces with some huge explosions, gun fighting, car chasing, I get pretty bored rather quickly. However, some of them tries to go a little further and I can definitely appreciate those. This movie is one fine example. I mean, it is far from being ... read more

love cagey - not his finest moment but worth a butchers - rating about right. some great characters - plenty of action just bit of a silly story.

I find it hard to dismiss this movie as trash, because it becomes very obvious throughout the duration of Con Air that they knew exactly what they were doing with this flick. At the end of the day it is entertaining and fun, what more could you ask from a Nic Cage action movie?
I'd recommend this movie for private screenings with friends as it provides excellent entertainment and the possibl... read more

A nice surprise

“As you may have noticed, I’m not a huge fan of action flicks. I mean, I have nothing against those but if they are only going to show some massive set-pieces with some huge explosions, gun fighting, car chasing, I get pretty bored rather quickly. However, some of them tries to go a little further and I can definitely appreciate those. This movie is one fine example. I mean, it is far from being one of the best in this genre but it sure went an extra mile on several levels. First of all, the cast was just awesome (Nicolas Cage, John Cusack , John Malkovich, Steve Buscemi, Ving Rhames, Dave Chappelle, Colm Meaney, Danny Trejo, Monica Potter). I mean, if you cast John Malkovich in an action flick as the bad guy, you get a few extra points right of the gate. Also, back in those days, Nicolas” read more

Happy Vader posted a review 1 year, 10 months ago

“Con-Air was, simply put, an awesome movie. I liked the premise, the convincing dialogues, the strong cast and the overall story-telling. There's nothing too flashy or gimmicky about it. You have give them props at their attempt at a quite-solid, quite-memorable action film. The film starts off with Cameron Poe enjoying a lovely moment with his wife that is quickly interpretated as "going to go bust" by our all too accustomed eye(s). After a drunken street brawl, which includes the death of the drunk, Cameron is sent to 7 years to jail. After a very bad 2 minute voiceover, and a montage / introduction of all the criminals that are to board the plane, the real film starts. Yes, when Cyrus takes over the plane, we know we're in for some memorable moments.

The majority of the charm ” read more

"True 90's action with lots of rrough scenes, Nicolas Cage with long hair, Steve Buscemi and evil criminals. Over-the-top action is highly enjoyable and in the end Con Air changes to tear-jerker. I often cry myself to sleep when thinking Simon West's career after his debut feature. "

"17.9. Jos Con Air jätti edellisellä kerralla komediaosastolla hieman kylmäksi, niin nyt kyllä irtosi käsittämätön määrä kalkkunaa tämän katsojan makuun. I was just admiring your cage, toteaa Nikke ja pelastaa päivän hyvittääkseen aiemman syntinsä, josta johtaneen vankeustuomion vääryyttä alleviivataan jo huvittavissa määrin. Meininki nousee huippuunsa, kun katsojan eteen marssitetaan aina vain sekopäisempiä, vaarallisempia ja sanalla sanoen täydellisempiä konnia. Eten"
