A schmaltzy action-adventure at 8,000 feet.

Mega-budget action extravaganzas don't get much sillier than this.

Rosenberg's sarcastic, tough-guy dialogue is full of lean-and-mean one-liners, and the superbly cast actors know how to milk them for all they're worth.

This frankly silly action movie scores major points for bordering on self-parody.

It's not exactly a spoof of action flicks, but everyone involved clearly has tongue wedged firmly within cheek.

Movie Metropolis

Rude, crude, mindless action and nonstop gratuitous violence just don't get any better.

Bruckheimer may be the only producer working in Hollywood today who deserves the auteur treatment.

Arizona Daily Star

Director Simon West pulls off the impossible task of having the film make constant fun of itself and its viewers while keeping the storyline grounded enough for emotional payoffs.

This is a big, silly film. Is it full of explosions and one-liners? Of course. Is it entertaining? Of course.

The Hollywood ending hurts the film's integrity, diminishing what could easily have become a classic of the genre.

With West's confident competence, and Bruckheimer's reliable slickness, Con Air gets out of its own way and becomes a trash classic.

Jerry Bruckheimer should be thankful for the modern audience's short attention span.

Film Blather

I don't know how it happened, or what Simon West was thinking, but the first half of Con Air is brilliant and the second half is a non-stop climax, and a dimwitted one at that.

Cage carries the first action flick of the year that's worthy of topping the box-office charts.

Has a strange air of nonchalant wackiness about it that makes it hard not to like.

James Rocchi

It's slapped together childishly and has no real foundation to render it even vaguely capable of withstanding a lapping wave of intellect or logic.

The stunts and explosions are amazing, of course, but escalate to overwrought chaos by the end.
