Cameron Poe, a highly decorated United States Army Ranger, came home to Alabama to his wife, Tricia, only to run into a few drunken regulars where Tricia works. Cameron unknowingly kills one of the drunks and is sent to a federal penitentiary for involuntary manslaughter for seven years. Cameron becomes eligible for parole and can now go home to his wife and daughter. Unfortunately, Cameron has to share a prison airplane with some of the country's most dangerous criminals, who took control of the plane and are now planning to escape the country. Cameron has to find a way to stop them while playing along. Meanwhile, United States Marshal Vincent Larkin is trying to help Cameron get free and stop the criminals, including Cyrus "The Virus" Grissom.
When Cameron Poe, of the US Army, is found guilty of manslaughter after killing a drunk man while protecting his wife outside a bar, he is sent to jail for eight years. During that time his daughter is born, but he waits patiently in his cell until his release date. He is flown home on board the Jailbird, which also transports some very dangerous convicts to a maximum-security prison in Louisiana. The convicts manage to escape directed by Cyrus "The Virus", who also leads the plane's take-over and re-routes it to an abandoned airfield to catch another plane which will take them to a foreign country. With Poe's help, the authorities learn where the convicts are headed for and manage to get there before they take off again. After the police and army are killed in an ambush at the airfield, the convicts take off again toward Las Vegas, but a US Marshal, Vince Larkin, with the help of Poe on board gets there again in time to finally stop the convicts.
Con Air (1997)
*** (out of 4)
Newly released con Cameron Poe (Nicolas Cage) just wants to see his six-year-old daughter and wife for the first time but to do so he must battle a plane full of some of the worst criminals in the country including Cyrus The Virus (John Malkovich). CON AIR doesn't have too many brains but it's certainly a highly entertaining film with some of the most memorable and fun characters that you're going to see in a picture like this. I certainly hopes no one comes to a movie like this expecting some sort of art-house picture because those folks will just be cheating themselves. Those wanting a lot of things blowing up will certainly be entertained by this. The greatest thing going in the film's favor is the terrific cast, which not only includes Cage and Malkovich but we also get the likes of Steve Buscemi, Ving Rhames, Dave Chappelle, Danny Trejo, John Cusack, Mykelti Williamson and Colm Meaney. The terrific cast certainly adds a lot of fun to the picture as the supporting players all fit their roles wonderfully and there's no question that the two leads are perfect. Malkovich chews up the scenery in the role of the bad guy who you can easily fear but also tell how smart he is. Cage, with a hilariously fun Southern accent, is also extremely good in the part and is smart enough to know when it's best to just wink at the viewer and have some fun. Another major plus are the stunts and action scenes. There's certainly some great stuff here including the finale with the plane landing in Las Vegas and of course the end stuff with the firefighter truck. Throughout the picture we're given all sorts of fun situations and it certainly doesn't hurt that we've got all these likable characters. CON AIR isn't a masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination but it's certainly a lot of fun and that's all that matters. Con Air is probably the most over the top action movie I have ever seen. It has so many one liners and Nicolas Cage with long hair and speaking in a terrible but hilarious southern accent. That being said, I love this movie for all the wrong reasons probably. It's almost like you're watching a spoof on other action movies, being extremely dumb and over the top.
Surprisingly though, Steve Buscemi pulls off an amazing performance. It's almost like he didn't even belong in this movie. Ving Rhames and John Malkovich are also pretty good.
I don't think Con Air is a great movie. In fact, I don't think it's even a good movie. As a matter of fact I think it's terrible, with dumb dialogue, way too many explosions and one liners for its own good and Nicolas Cage overacting at its best. But it's hilarious, it's awesome. If you like 90's action movies like Broken Arrow, definitely check out Con Air if you haven't. This is a movie that knows it is absurd, and does little to deny it. During the fight, Billy-Joe pulls a switch-blade on Cameron. Cameron responds by striking Billy-Joe in the nose, causing him to die from blunt-force trauma to the head. When Billy-Joe's friends flee the scene, one of them grabs the switch-blade off the ground. Therefore making a self-defence case difficult to prove. As the only witness Cameron had was his wife Trisha and even she ran off to get Dale the bartender before Billy-Joe pulled the knife, therefore she didn't witness what happened.
During his trial, Cameron refused to plead guilty. However, his lawyer gives him poor advice, stating that he risked getting 10 years if the case went to trial and he lost. But by admitting to it, he'd only get 4 years and serve maybe a year for good behaviour. For whatever reason, this wasn't a plea deal, but lawyer's advice. So when he plead guilty, the judge seemingly decided to make an example out of Cameron, believing that Cameron, being a former Army Ranger didn't think the normal rules of society applied to him and that he is trained to respond with deadly force, therefore making him a danger to society and therefore gave him a sentence of 7-10 years. a5c7b9f00b
