Con Air Reviews
There's not really a lot to say, it's loud, dumb, and Nicholas Cage's long hair and terrible southern accent pass the realm of the bad and enter into a new world; a world so bad, it's good.
Very exciting action movie. The story was good and entertaining. Very nice cast, lots of crazy people. If you like action this is a movie you must see.
Cameron Poe is an Army Ranger who was going to go home to his pregnant wife when he got into a fight with three men. He would kill one of them and the other two ran away with the knife they had and because of that he would be convicted of manslaughter. After eight years he would be paroled. He would be part of a group that's being transferred to another prison and flown in a special plane. While in flight a fight breaks out and two of the most dangerous criminals, Diamond Dog and Cyrus the Virus Grissom, would break out from their restraints and take over the plane. When the plane makes it's first stop Poe and friend who's a diabetic and who wasn't given his shot, and all the syringes were destroyed, try to get off but Grissom wouldn't let them. He then tries to alert the authorities but got away. Now the government is considering shooting the plane down but U.S. Marshall Vince Larkin thinks that it's a little hasty and believes that Poe is an ally. When Grissom leads them on a wild goose chase, Poe alerts them to where they are going.
nicknames......Pinball, Virus, Swamp Thing, Diamond Dog etc...excellent haha
The cast really is the best line up of action men and character actors since Predator or any 80's showdown. You have Trejo, Buscemi, Rhames, Malkovich, Mc Gainley and from 80's actioners Ticotin. All you need is Carl Weathers and Sonny Landham and this would be the bollocks lol
The first half is the best, the criminal role call, on the plane, Cusack and his plane tantrums, then we get a brilliant desert setup and gun battle, people dropping like flies one at a time but the ending is abit too stupid, luckily it never matters really, well not too much.
some of it is predictable some isnt (buscemi's ending),but a great surprise that came outta nowhere on release.
love the logo too.
