TSMI: The Rock

Why this movie:
The Rock was on my list of unseen movies suggested by friends. My two younger brothers started watching it and filled me in when I came home 15 minutes later.

What I knew going in:
Alcatraz? Actiony-suspense?

Things that surprised me:

My take-away:
Oh boy. I was on my laptop, casually glancing up now and then, within 10 minutes of joining this movie. It was doomed for failure as soon as I realized 2 of my least favorite actors (Cage, Connery) were main characters, but the film did nothing to redeem itself.

Best part:
Sean Connery's quarter trick in the interrogation room. "Womack! Why am I not surprised, you piece of shit." :P

There are times in all of our lives when we need to consider if it might be prudent to get new friends. This, for you, is one of those times.

I love these movie reviews so far. I gotta go back and rewatch some of them.
