The Rock

Weekly Alibi

DIRECTED BY: Michael Bay

REVIEWED: 07-17-96

Entertaining, if overly frenetic action flick in which Sean Connery and Nicholas Cage try to stop a military madman (Ed Harris) from launching a nerve gas attack from the former island prison of Alcatraz. Michael Bay (Bad Boys) directs with a swaggering confidence while Connery and Cage add a level of acting class not usually seen in these kinds of movies.
