- There were no better action movies in the late 90s than the Jerry Bruckheimer productions. Big budget, big cast, big explostions, big action. This was no exception.
- You wanted nothing more than for Cameron Poe to succesfully deliver the birthday present bunny. They really should have put the bunny back in the box.
- This really was a kick-ass cast. Nicholas Cage, John Cusack, John Malkovich, Ving Rhames, Steve Buscemi, Colm Meaney and not forgetting the hardest man in cinema: Danny Trejo!
From the hit-making producer of The Rock and Crimson Tide comes the hard-hitting blockbuster Con Air, starring Nicolas Cage (National Treasure, Gone In 60 Seconds, The Rock), John Cusack (Grosse Pointe Blank, High Fidelity), and John Malkovich (In the Line of Fire, Dangerous Liaisons). A prison parolee (Cage) on his way to freedom faces impossible odds when the maximum security transport plane he's on is skyjacked by the most vicious criminals in the country ... led by the infamous murderer Cyrus "The Virus" Grissom (Malkovich). Buckle up and hang on tight as explosive high-flying action soars to spectacular new heights in this must-see Extended Edition!
Ladies and Gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. I have the only gun on board. Welcome to Con Air.
