It’s been twenty years since Nicolas Cage, Jerry Bruckheimer and Simon
West first brought Cameron Poe’s mullet to the big screen, and
Hecklevision couldn’t let this anniversary pass without a revival
screening of this overblown action classic!
CON AIR (1997):
Cameron Poe (Cage) is a former Army Ranger that takes things a little
too far in a back-alley brawl and ends up with a manslaughter charge and
a 10-year prison sentence. Finally up for parole, he’s placed on a
prison flight home with a murderer’s row of actual murderers including
criminal mastermind Cyrus “The Virus” (John Malkovich), who hijacks the
flight. Now it’s Poe, with his tanktop and majestic hair, against a
bunch of bad dudes and typical Bruckheimer excess. Explosions? Terrible
one-liners? More explosions? Dave Chappelle? This film truly has it all!
special screening is presented in HECKLEVISION. Text your jokes,
heckles and commentary, and they'll appear instantly on screen.
