Anyone with taste in films keeps well away from this.

I only got this cos of my interest in Alcatraz. Disc 2 is interesting for the history of the rock so Im keeping that. The film is going in the bin.

  Fun Hi Concept Action Adventure

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 -
Con Air
Enemy of the State
Swordfish
Gone in 60
Armageddon
Face Off

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

  CAGE AND CONNERY IN A BAY FILM.....WHATS NOT TO LIKE

| | See all PATCHES1989's reviews (518)

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

I started to watch this film on TV and only got half way through. The next day I was straight on the internet to buy it. If you like action with witty comments and great actors, then this is for you!!!

  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

  Action at its best

This isn't your typical michael bay film in that this is actually very good. The plot is pretty good and the action is good too. Cage and connery are good together. A good one for the men out there

  Great!

I borrowed this film from my uncle, watched it, then was on Play 5 mins after ordering it. I LOVED it. Action packed, full of cool scenes and witty lines. There is some nice politcal drama in there, with some true honour and a true cause hidden underneath all the action and violence. Sean Connery makes this film, Nicolas Cage pulls his role off beautifully, and Ed Harris is the perfect honourable bad guy. Get it.
