Overview

This DVD of Con Air is presented in widescreen with a 2.35:1 aspect ratio, and the sound is done in Dolby Digital 5.1. Also included is a French-language track and Spanish subtitles. The special effects are the big winners in this DVD version. Viewers can almost see the rivets of the plane in some of the sequences, and the color rendition is excellent. Little effort went into the extra features in this DVD. Besides the language options, Touchstone included the original theatrical trailer and a "teaser" trailer. Information on the special effects and the impressive stunt work would have been welcome.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Sometimes it takes a couple of years for a film to fully mature -- not so with the ill-advised Con Air. In this mostly depraved, pseudo-stylized action film, a perenially distinguished cast goes for the big bucks. Director Simon West, doing his best John Woo impression, recruits the talented John Cusack, Nicholas Cage and John Malkovich for this misguided effort. Malkovich and Cage make the most out of the dissatisfying dialogue while Cusack is completely out of his element. The plot twists keep the film from being a total disaster -- although the romance at the center of the film is a stretch, considering the nonstop-bloodbath action sequences -- as does the late appearance of always-entertaining eccentric Steve Buscemi. In fact, the spirited supporting cast of characters, including Dave Chappelle and Ving Rhames, almost steal the show entirely. Filmgoers didn't heed reviewers' advice, however, as the film climbed well over $100 million at the box office.
