The Rock - the one where the bad guys take over Alcatraz.

What's your favourite part and what don't you like about it?

I love the film, its orignal, alot of good action stuff in it, Nick Cage plays his role great, 9/10

This is Michael Bay's best action movie ever made.

The only thing I don't like about it is the weak reason that General Hummel (Ed Harris) gives for holding 81 (quite a weak number) tourists hostage. And the fact that he doesn't actually do anything thats worth him being a bad guy.

I probably best like the part where Goodspeed (Cage) is defusing the first rocket in the morgue. The interchange betwen him and Connery is excellent.

It's just a stupid, unbelievable, unoriginal, loud, corny guys 'n guns flick.

And I ****ing love it. The opening scene is fantastic, and the final scene is even better. I probably would've liked it even if it had been full of D-list meat-headed nobodies, but the fact that it's Cage, Harris, Connery and John C. McGinley is like the icing on the cake.

Great film, one of my best ever - i remember as a young starpping lad that I must of watched that film 3 times a week over at my grandas.

mmm.....81 hostages is a quite reasonable number, they wern't going to go anywhere else, that just happened to be the number of tourists on the rock at the time. Their main objective was Alcatraz - a place in range of san Fransisco and pretty much inpeniterable (they didnt count on John masson and Stanly goodspeed whooo!!).

One of connery's best films (apart from james bondera).

And I f*cking hate it. Ok, not hate, but I definitely am not a fan of this movie.
