About the Movie

From the hit-making producer of The Rock and Crimson Tide comes the hard-hitting blockbuster Con Air, starring Nicolas Cage (National Treasure, Gone In 60 Seconds, The Rock), John Cusack (Grosse Pointe Blank, High Fidelity), and John Malkovich (In the Line of Fire, Dangerous Liaisons). 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. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Sep 18, 2008

Rotten: They're 'the worst of the worst.' So's the movie. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Sep 18, 2008

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. – USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

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. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

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.
