It's a well known fact that Nicolas Cage ruins every film he touches. It still amazes me to this day that the buffoon has an Oscar at home on his mantle. This film is no exception. Despite being a classic hostage-terrorist threat caper, Cage fails to even prove his worth on the comic cliche scales.

The supporting cast is astounding, with heroes such as Ed Harris, David Morse, John M... read more

Michael Bay throws a decent movie our way

Making a good action scene isn't really all that hard. You just need some action to it, and voila. You have a good action scene. Then you just slap some cliched score ontop and edit it nicely. But let's take a look at what action scenes are about; They're about people being involved in action. Be it a car chase, a shootout or even a fistfight, it always involves primary or secondary characters duk... read more

The Rock is complete bad-ass. If this sentence reminded you of the wrestler, don't bother reading this review. Michael Bay has become synonymous with big-budgeted flicks with little to no soul to them nowadays. The Rock is as arthouse a film as one can get. This film is still to this day his most celebrated film, and his most critically acclaimed, and that's ironic seeing he is less known for his ... read more

Film Journal 2018 (93 movies items)

"The best possible cast and crew for a 90s action movie make one and it features a car chase full of perilous situations featuring old ladies crossing the road, an antique street car, sports cars, humvees, sick flips, paralympic athletes crossing the road, a truck full of water and a sick jump through a glass window."

"13.10. Michael Biehn ei voi vieläkään jumalauta antaa sitä käskyä. Ed Harris tietää sen helvetin hyvin. Konnapeukku viuhuu, ja hiustaiteilija haluaa vain tietää, onko Sean Connery tyytyväinen uuteen kampaukseensa. Tony Todd ei kuuntele pehmopersepaskaa, vaikka hän on todellisuudessa rakettimies."

Movie Reviews (501-550) (50 movies items)

" It is the final watchable action movie that Sean Connery did before he retired and it also seemed to have been a sort-of comeback to his old 007 persona again (but with a different name) giving the role a great full circle. It is also one of the few films directed by Michael Bay that is acceptable and actually satisfying. Ed Harris play one of the more sympathetic villains that I have seen on screen. The excellent movie score by Hans Zimmer pulls me into the movie at once. Some of the humor fal"

"13.04. Blu-ray, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Michael Bay I like the lead actors but honestly, Michael Bay really can't direct engaging action scenes. The car chase scene is terrible but so are 99% of car chase scenes ever. "

"Hey look, it's a movie where Sean Connery and Nicholas Cage both have hair! While I usually don't like Michael Bay's movies (not that I'm judging or anything), I gotta admit, when I watched this one, I found myself enjoying it, quite alot. I don't know why this particular Bay flick stands out more than his others (I don't even like Bad Boys, which is usually the most well-regarded of all of his films), but the fact that it has a place on this list, shows that it did. I dunno. Maybe it's jus"
