Con Air Turns 20 (1997)

If the 1980's were known for the one-man army action film, the 90's were known for the ensemble blow everything to hell action film.  Con Air is one of those such films with an all star cast featuring Nicolas Cage, John Malkovich, John Cusack, Ving Rhames, Danny Trejo and more.  What is it that sets the film apart from other action films of it's era?  Maybe it's the insanely fun cast and crazy ape shit characters they play?  Maybe it's the root for the good guy story of Cameron Poe, a man who made a mistake and just wants to get home?  Maybe it's the over the top premise of the whole film?  Or maybe it's all of the above.  We think it's just cause the film is so much fun that you don't even think about plot holes, the absurdness of it all or anything else.  You just hold onto your butts and enjoy the ride of Con Air!  It turned 20 years old this week and we think it still holds up well as a modern action classic!  Rumors have persisted for years of a possible sequel.  It might not be as good as the original but we would be in line for it.  Until then we have the this great action film to watch over and over again for the next 20 years.
