Action Movie For The Day - THE ROCK (1996)
Awesome movie. Sean Connery proves that he's still can kick some ass and Nic Cage is good in his first action role. Plus any movie with a line like "Losers always whine about their best. Winners go home and f**k the prom queen" has to be good. The plot has a former marine general (Ed Harris) holding several hostages at Alcatraz Prison until his demands are met. Sean Connery is a former prisoner who successfully escaped from the Alcatraz and goes in with a team of Navy Seals to help diffuse the situation. Nic Cage is on hand as an FBI chemical specialist to handle the bad guys lethal rockets. The Rock is balls to the walls action from the word go.
Ed Harris as General Hummel
Nicolas Cage trying to do the right thing...
Sean throwing down with some major firepower..
I always loved the trailer when the announcer hypes it up by saying.."This summer, Get ready to rock!" Awesome!
