Nicolas Cage’s 1997 iconic action movie Con Air is one of my favorite action movies from the 90s. I love the movie a lot and watched it many times, It was just such a great and fun film. We just don’t see movies like this anymore.
In the story, Cage plays a prisoner on board of a transfer plane that happens to be bringing some of the most deadly criminals in the world. Cage’s character, Cameron Poe, is being released and he just wants to get home for his daughters birthday. Unfortunately, the prisoners hijack the plane and he has to stop them from escaping and get himself home unharmed.
The movie has such a beautifully ridiculous premise, but it’s staked with an impressive cast that includes John Malkovich, John Cusack, Mykelti Williamson, Ving Rhames, Steve Buscemi, Danny Trejo, Dave Chappelle, M.C. Gainey, and Colm Meaney.
The Screen Junkies released a new video of Honest Trailers for us to enjoy and it points out all of the reasons why we actually love this movie. Check out the video below.
