Con Air (1997) ***1/2

In the pantheon of ridiculous, over-the-top 90s action films with quotable dialogue, Con Air (1997) ranks very high. Cage actually feels somewhat subdued in this one, but considering the rest of the ensemble, who all fire on every cylinder, it's not surprising. This is the kind of "dumb" slick action flick I like - one that realizes that the dialogue and characters are just as important as the explosions.
