Packed high with explosive action and loaded with high-stakes jeopardy, Con Air charts a generally sound narrative course, although it hits some story turbulence before it hits its climactic jackpot.

Resolutely not boring.

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 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.

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.
