King Connery: The Rock (1996)

Hoezo in Kino

“The Rock has become a tourist attraction?.” At the tender age of 66, Sir Sean Connery victoriously reclaimed the Everestian summit of action hero stardom with his role as ex-MI6 operative John Mason in Michael Bay’s completely bonkers and brilliant The Rock. A motion picture so stacked with over-the-top set pieces, machismo scenery chewing and military grade one-liners, it feels like you are the one getting an adrenaline shot to the chest. It’s been 25 long years since we saw this film on the big screen and it’s about time to repeat the experience with this peak Cage, Bayhem, Bruckheimer & Simpson ‘balls to the wall’ 90’s action movie.
