    This is one to watch! The reason this movie grossed $224,012,234 in the box-office is because it is a real crowd pleaser! It had a budget of $75 million, and it really shows. This movie is and always will be a hit. Is it the best movie ever....NO! But is it the worst......HELL NO! This movie is a huge YES YES YES!

    A hilarious film with a knock-out cast. A refreshing cast with a flawless performance by Nicholas Cage (However, the accent did need more work) John Cusack and the whole cast are truly amazing! A hilarious film and a truly magical watch that gives everyone of us a good time!

    A great film, it truly, truly is! Really enjoyed this one, they do not make them like this anymore! You will enjoy this one! Monica Potter gives a fantastic performance, as she always does, and she did not have a huge part in this one! This movie has it all; Romance, Action, Suspense and a lot of comedy! BRILLIANT!

    What is wrong with you all. Con Air is such a bad film it's good. It doesn't take itself overly seriously like all the egotistical action movies of this decade. It is badass, lighthearted fun, I hated Nic Cage until I watched this film and the director used his infamous bad acting to his advantage and made the movie another awesomely bad cheesy 90s action film. 10/10!!!!

    Con Air is a full on adrenaline rush with Cooke acting from a distinguished cast. Nicolas Cage made
    another effects packed thriller with this movie. The movie has great comedy as well with many quotable
    lines. Con Air will delight you with its memorable action and dialogue.

    Preposterous, predictable, but excessively entertaining, this frenzied thriller draws both story and characters from such action classics as "The Fugitive," "Die Hard," "The Dirty Dozen" and "The Silence of the Lambs."

    Con Air is entertaining in an extravagantly decadent sort of way. It just isn't a movie.

    The saving grace of Con Air is its sense of its own absurdity.
