Con Air

Lists: Action

Brief Synopsis: "When the government puts all its rotten criminal eggs in one airborne basket, it's asking for trouble. Before you can say, "Pass the barf bag," the crooks control the plane, led by creepy Cyrus "The Virus" Grissom. Watching his every move is the just-released Cameron Poe, who'd rather reunite with his family. The action climaxes with an incredible crash sequence in Las Vegas."

Dan O'Neill90 - Con Air is full of energy and humor, that is fun to be a part of and does hit the right spots every time throughout the movie. Though the ending was a little bit out of hand, the film still holds a great place in my heart.

Bryan Lienesch76 - John Malkovich is magnificent, as always, but the rest of the crowd can't keep pace. The end result is yet another good-but-not-great, B-list action flick.
