Movie Reviews

Chicago Sun-Times - 9/10 by Roger Ebert A first-rate, slam-bang action thriller with a lot of style and no little humor.
Austin Chronicle - 8/10 by Marc Savlov The Guy Movie to end all Guy Movies, a ridiculously overblown summer testosterone blowout right down to the Wagnerian strains of the soundtrack and its stunningly high body count. It's also a hell of a lot of fun.
Philadelphia Inquirer - 8/10 by Desmond Ryan The borrowings from other movies, going all the way back to the car chase in 1968's Bullitt, are heavy. But Bay has three leads to lend weight and dimension to characters who are hardly original and flatly written.
ReelViews - 8/10 by James Berardinelli Although not as expertly-crafted as "Die Hard" or "Speed," The Rock is exhausting in its own right -- and that's just one of several convincing reasons to see this film.
San Francisco Chronicle - 8/10 by Peter Stack A raucous, in-your-face, commando-style action thriller that makes provocative use of Alcatraz as a lunatic's lair and San Francisco as a sitting duck.
San Francisco Examiner - 8/10 by Barbara Shulgasser Bay has two great assets in Connery and Cage. The special effects give The Rock a James Bondian feel so Connery's wry, world-weary devil-may-careishness looks right at home here.
Entertainment Weekly - 7/10 by Owen Gleiberman Sean Connery and Nicolas Cage inject tasty bits of personality into their roles.
Variety - 7/10 by Todd McCarthy This is a pure popcorn picture that benefits heavily from its trio of highly skilled, charismatic leading thesps, an unusual setting that provides plenty of visual stimulation, and a confrontational standoff that actually stems from a legitimately provocative premise.
The New York Times - 7/10 by Elvis Mitchell Seldom is it clearer that a film is nothing more than high-gloss jokey escapism, or that when visual cliches are this relentless they become weirdly fascinating in their own right.
Chicago Reader - 7/10 by Jonathan Rosenbaum High-octane nonsense but gives both the actors and the audience all that's needed to make this diverting--car chases, wisecracks, narrow escapes, explosions.
Time - 7/10 by Richard Corliss Slick, brutal and almost human, this is the team-spirit action movie Mission: Impossible should have been.
Baltimore Sun - 6/10 by Chris Kridler Connery and Cage are a compelling team and redeem the film from ruin despite the mechanical plot, an excessive body count and a miraculous recovery (you'll know it when you see it).
