As you can tell, with such a eclectic bunch of psychos on board it's only a matter of seconds before all hell breaks loose. John Cusack plays Vince Larkin, a Marshall who believes that Poe is on his side and wants to get this plane down as safely as he can, he does a terrific job, even though his looks aren't what I would've pictured for the part. It is definitely an entertaining diversion, and Cage and Cusack are good in their roles, Colm Meaney is as always amusing. Overall this is a fine action film which keeps its focus on the characters. Steve Buscemi steals the whole show. Cameron unknowingly kills one of the drunks and is sent to a federal penitentiary for involuntary manslaughter for seven years.
He is just becoming one of my favorite actors, but I'll explain later. The movie though went to Steve Buscemi! But I shouldn't grouse too much. Grab the popcorn, because you're going on a ride! He manages to cut from one story arc to another with a certain amount of skill, keeping each arc from completely snowballing into something unmanageable. The film has a weakness for hyperbole, each character introduction, each scene, each explosion is meant to top the one before it. Cameron becomes eligible for parole and can now go home to his wife and daughter.
On his way to freedom, Cameron faces impossible odds when the maximum security transport plane he's on is skyjacked by the most vicious criminals in the country. Unfortunately, the throttle has only one speed: pedal to the metal. He is going home via a gigantic prison plane which is also carrying some very unsavory characters John Malkovich, Ving Rhames, and Steve Buscemi among others. Of course the evil prisoners take over the plane and it is up to Cage to save the day. Cameron becomes eligible for parole and can now go home to his wif.
Malkovich and Buscemi are creepy enough but not the flamboyant psychos they could have been. Meanwhile, Sawyer is an amused but highly interested bystander when tension escalates between Jack, Locke, Kate and Ana Lucia. The scene where he sings with a little girl and continues later on will either freak you out or steal your heart. And the ending is the best you could hope for. With Poe's help, the authorities learn where the convicts are headed for and manage to get there before they take off again. Fortunately, the film does have a real ensemble cast, the full roster of villainous character actors: Malkovich, Rhames, Buscemi, Danny Trejo amongst the cons.
Subtlety is a word that is impossible to use in describing this film. Wouldn't you consider that to be insane? However, the juggling act wears thin by the end of the movie there's simply too much to try to balance. Unlike Woo or McTiernan, who--predictable as they may arguably be--are able to build crescendos and know when to let off the gas, this one keeps on pushing harder and harder until we're feeling a bit catatonic. The movie simply doesn't have room for both villains and it definitely doesn't have room for the Lecter-inspired Garland Green, who Steve Buscemi turns into an odd sort of comic relief, but otherwise serves no purpose in the film. The film's beginning sets a hopeful tone, we see the honorable Cage unjustly imprisoned and preparing to return to his home and the child he has never seen.
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. The second half of the film has forced moments, where the only purpose of the action scenes seems to be to completely outdo the action scenes in the first half. Chappelle keeps it funny while he's on screen but it's not long enough. 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. Con Air is everything an action film should be. Easier said than done, as double-crosses, suspicious cons and incompetent authority foul everything up.
These scenes are undeniably cool looking, but they're filler, and filler can only take a movie so far. Meanwhile, the penal system is filling the transport plane which will take Cage to freedom with a cast of the worst criminal psychos behind bars. Now, onto Steve who plays Garland 'The Marietta Mangler' Greene, this incredibly intelligent but insane serial killer who gives you a Hannibal the Cannibal vibe. Cameron unknowingly kills one of the drunks and is sent to a federal penitentiary for involuntary manslaughter for seven years. It's a great action flick that deserves a look and a better rating! He is flown home on board the Jailbird, which also transports some very dangerous convicts to a maximum-security prison in Louisiana. His deadpan, bug-eyed and dare I say 'innocent' portrayal of a deranged killer is the centrepiece of the whole film.
It never seems to end, which is usually a bad thing for an action movie. . Even the characters, while entertaining, wind up just overwhelming the film. As Cyrus the Virus, John Malkovich is also charismatic, menacing, and a truly inspired movie bad guy.

Mark Mancina and Trevor Rabin provide a loud, blaring score of thrash-metal and acoustic guitars with the usual Media Ventures flare.
Nathan 'Diamond Dog' Jones Ving Rhames , a black militant inside for murder. The film deals with a Gulf War veteran Nicolas Cage who becomes a victim of circumstance and is sentenced to eight years in prison. And this really did deserve the Best Original Song award over that pansy Titanic one. Poe, being the good-hearted sort of chap that he is, doesn't rat out as his best pal needs his insulin shot and no one else will help. Even Dave Chapelle is amongst the crooks.
The film's emphasis is on flash, flair, and adrenaline, with a smattering of humor and story spread throughout for good measure. Cameron has to find a way to stop them while playing along. As soon as the plane is in the air the cons have taken over, restrained or killed the guards and have changed the destination from prison to South America. People, this was a great movie that kept you on the edge of your seat with some of the greatest actors of our time: Nic Cage, John Malkovich, and John Cusack.
