Reviews
Mine: A routine action film, improved by Harris, Cage and Connery. Fun, but that is it. Story is plainly ludicrous.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Big, loud, often dumb action/suspense yarn about a disgruntled Marine general who takes over Alcatraz, threatening to obliterate San Francisco with high-tech poison gas. Enter FBI biochemist Cage and long-imprisoned British agent Connery--the only man who ever escaped from The Rock--to lead a rescue team onto the island. Plenty of kinetic action and destruction, as well as contrivances and story holes. David Marshall Grant appears unbilled. Super 35.
