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

...were that many explosions really necessary?

I liked the way the film is crafted. Simon West is no artist, but he's got the Bruckheimer machine behind him making sure everything is fast, loud and flashy.

Adrenaline-pumping action drama with some special surprizes.

Cast actors with a bit of box-office clout; hire a director smart enough to shoot each explosion so it can be shown multiple times from different angles; find a script with all the depth and complexities of a coloring book. And ``Action!''...

You have to wonder where we stand as a society when something like "Con Air" passes for entertainment.

Unfortunately, this Touchstone effort falls well below the stature of its aspirations, too often substituting bombast for believability before finally plunging headlong into the ridiculous.

The quintessential summer movie.

It's silly, but it's also free from pretensions to be anything else.

They're 'the worst of the worst.' So's the movie.

Beneath all the dust and blood, there is heart in the tale of a man trying to get back to his wife and child.

Numbing but not boring, it's finally more dispiriting than exhilarating, like a wild night of debauchery that leaves only a fearsome hangover for a souvenir.

All of the principals normally work in films more interesting and human than this one, which gives Con Air a touch of the subversive and turns it into a big-budget lark.
January 1, 2000
Sitting through this movie is like watching a dog running in circles chasing its tail -- the amusement factor dies quickly as the situation become repetitive.

How's the movie? Big, loud, brutal and stupid, that's how it is.
January 1, 2000
The movie is essentially a series of quick setups, brisk dialogue and elaborate action sequences.

It's only all these A-list and almost-A-list actors that makes this anything other than a made-for-USA Networks movie.
January 1, 2000
There are some decent actors in this movie, and they have sold their souls to the devil.

Despite the glut of strong performers, the thing never gets past its cumbersome, detonate-everything high concept.
January 1, 2000
Packs enough of a ka-boom to please the many fans of the action genre.
