CON AIR (Theatrical Release USA 1997)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì 

Con Air—good, classy story that delivers—shows the skill of Director Simon West in directing an all-star cast in a constant stream of tension from its opening scenes to its concluding scenes. The casting is perfect and exceptionally reality driven. This film never lets up. It’s a terrific movie for persons desiring the emotions of horror, dread, and tension.
