About the Movie

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!

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: 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.
Rotten: They're 'the worst of the worst.' So's the movie.
Rotten: Massaging every demographic, this admittedly fast, funny and robustly acted progeny of The Rock exploits actions of killers and rapists -- then cynically sells family values with a lengthy wrap-up ballad.
Fresh: 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.
Awesome!!!!! Totally worth the purchase! Tons of action! Awesome plot! Lots of surprises!
Criminals, Explosions, and Average Acting
It's always on TV, but worth seeing at least once. And ask yourself this... Have you ever seen a N. Cage movie in a theater? All his movies that I've seen were on TV or DVD.
