The Rock | CAGE-A-RAMA 2018

Sat 6 January 2018

Day one of CAGE-A-RAMA 2018 kicks off with The Rock (1996), the first of the Holy Trinity and, according to the AV Club, “the one good movie Michael Bay ever gave us”.

Millions of lives hang in the balance after a military madman (Ed Harris) seizes control of the island prison Alcatraz and threatens to launch deadly poison gas missiles at San Francisco. With time ticking away, a chemical weapons expert (Nicolas Cage) and a cunning federal prisoner (Sean Connery), who happens to be the only man ever to escape from Alcatraz, must now break in and disarm the missiles.

Followed by Face/Off (1997)
