Two Academy Award-winners, Sean Connery and Nicholas Cage, star in the action adventure blockbuster that critics hailed as a drop-dead thrill ride.

Millions of lives hang in the balance after a military madman seizes control of the island prison Alcatraz and threatens to launch deadly poison gas missiles at San Francisco. With time ticking away, a chemical weapons expert and a cunning federal prisoner, who happens to be the only man ever to escape from Alcatraz, must now break in and disarm the missiles.

From team that brought you 'Crimson Tide' and 'Bad Boys', 'The Rock' delivers hard-hitting action and suspense you'll never forget!

Director Michael Bay and producer Jerry Bruckheimers 2nd collaboration is pure popcorn Entertainment.
Very Cool Concept, Inspired casting choices and Action and Thrills galore.
The casting is just Perfect, casting of Sean Connery is Genius.
This is was also Nicolas Cages first step towards Action Hero Superstar status.
Ed Harris is also very good as the Bad Guy.
Director Michael Bay is in a more restraint form here as this is one of his earlier movies, before Armageddon, Pearl Harbour and Transformers.
But all his Trademarks are in place, Fast Editing, Rock Music, Orange Tints, Maximum Style and Breathtaking Action

If you like this, watch these -

If you've never ever watched this film - go and buy it now.
Along with Con Air this shows Cage at what he does best = Action movies. Sean Connery and Ed Harris are also impressive throughout
Whats not to love about this film - its fast paced, full of action and has some top actors to boot

Its Cage and Connery vs Ed Harris in one of the most spectacular action movies of the 90s and didnt disappoint one bit. The plot was solid as was the action and typical of a Michael Bay movie had stunning special effects and high budget explosions to keep action junkies happy. If you liked "Con Air" or "Face Off" then you should have no problem enjoying this simply brilliant popcorn flick. Enjoy

 Pure Action...

This has to be one of the greatest action movies of all time with its non-stop action, edge of your seat explosions and a great cast and director.

Nic Cage and Sean Connery are great and work well as a team, they are like an odd-couple, the action the chases, the explosions, the gunfights are almost every minute. Michael Bay is a great director of his genre and certainly knows what he's doing.

This is a must for fans of Michael Bay's action flicks and fans of pure non stop action, excellent
