Con Air film review

This is such a cool film in my opinion, it has everything you could want and expect in an action film, and those things are: Nicolas Cage, explosions and a lot of crashes. Yes these are cliches but who cares? (I don’t) Con Air is good fun. It has a good screenplay, a good cast and it doesn’t get boring thanks to the non-stop action.

Nicolas Cage stars as a parolee on his way home but unfortunately for him his way home happens to be on a super plane filled with some of Americas craziest and deadliest in-mates and even more unfortunate for him they manage to take over the plane which leaves him in a sticky situation.

John Malkovich is fantastic as a deranged inmate who will do anything to escape and so will his fellow criminals who leave him in charge. With Steve Buscemi also putting in a good (but very weird) performance this is a cool action film that stands by the old traditions of the genre but comes out the other end with good results.
