ABC Film Challenge
Why I’ve Picked this choice – When it comes to action films the 90’s bought us the all new and greatly entertaining movies, The Rock directed by Michael Bay bought us a domestic terrorist situation centred around Alcatraz in San Francisco. We follow a military man trying to get money for his men that have been lost in conflict and forgotten, America turns to forgotten about prisoner John Mason (Sean Connery) who escaped the Rock and biochemist Stanley Goodspeed (Nicolas Cage) to stop the attack.
We have big action set pieces, witty one-liners from the whole cast and not to mention a mega star cast included here. This is one of the greats and one that proves that Michael Bay can do action even if his latest films haven’t always been on the same level.
