Holy Cow! What Kool-aid have you people been drinking!?!
Aside from the absurd dialog, complete phoniness (including the characters, plot, situations, & dialog), and utterly horrid script, this is the biggest piece of B.$. propaganda I've seen in quite a while. (And that says something.) It would be utterly laughable, except for the social conditioning it tries to instill.

One wonders why this movie merits a Criterion Collection edition. It's an adolescent fantasy which requires too great a suspension of disbelief. Nicolas Cage does his way over the top 1990s thing. Sean Connery is good, as is Ed Harris. But other than those two the only interesting thing about this two-disk set is the interview with Jerry Bruckheimer.

The only good movie Michael Bay has made mainly thanks to Sean Connery.

Really the only watchable movie that Michael "Blow It UP!" Bay has ever made.

A buddy movie between Connery and Cage? But it works, for the most part.
