So basically Nicholas Cage is an Army Ranger from Alabama. One night he goes to visit his pregnant wife at the bar she works at and she's getting harassed by a bunch of redneck drunks. Later they go outside and try to jump him for verbally defending her inside and possibly harm her. Cage uses his Ranger skills and incapacitates all of them. However he is sentenced to like 8 years in prison for using government granted awesomeness to defend his wife and himself. After waiting his time in prison he gets to be a free man, but as luck would have it John Malcovich and a million other awesome people take over the prison plane and set about trying to make their own escape. Since we all know Nicholas Cage is never an evil bastard, its safe to assume that he tries to stop those oh so dangerous criminals...and thats as much as I'm gonna say without spoiling it for those of you who haven't watched...
|Oh yeah thats more like it|
Otherwise on to the ratings!
Cast: 10/10!!! Includes Nicholas Cage, John Malkovich, John Kusach, Ving Rhames, Nick Chinlund, Steve Buscemi, Dave Chapelle, and Danny Trejo off the top of my head!
Action: 9/10 Takes awhile to pickup for you adrenaline junkies, but once it starts youll be holding in piss not to missout on some of those scenes.
Pacing: 10/10 Very logical and not rushed, this could very well have happened in 1997 lol
Plot: 10/10 Simple concept. What if prisoners took over a plane? Excellent Delivery of that plot!
Acting: 10/10 See any duds in the cast list? I didnt think so.
My favorite thing: Seeing Steve Buscemi contained like Hannibal Lecter lol.
