A mid 90's Michael Bay action movie that I always considered his best. Does it hold up? Here's my review for THE ROCK!

Just watched this for the first time and I had a blast. Not quite Equilibrium or Terminator 2 but definitely one of the best action movies I've ever seen. Great script great cast and Bay in his element. 9.5/10

I can’t believe this is a Michael Bay movie...

I didn’t mind the chase scene, especially with that exciting music. Also, I wonder if the brief dialogue Connery had w/ Harris helped deter him from launching the rockets into the civilian population. I like Harris so much as that honorable villain.

Just finished (re)watching The Rock. Been 15 or so years since the last watch, and it has aged surprisingly well. It still has too many Michael Bay-isms to enjoy it fully (just count the average shot lenght... jeez, just the let the scenes breath), but it is an enjoyable watch, and definitely less of a guilty pleasure than Armageddon :P

Jeremy, since you did a Sean Connery movie here, would you consider reviewing one of my favorites, his sci-fi classic from the early 80's titled "Outland?" I don't see you do many Westerns here ... this is sort of "High Noon In Outer Space." I really like it. Thanks in advance, Jeremy.

Absolutely love these films. The 90s was awesome for them. These are the type of films you can just lie on the couch and enjoy a movie where there isn't much thinking needed. Just relax and enjoy.

"Your best? Losers always whine about their best. Winners go home and fuck the prom queen." "Carla WAS the prom queen." Agreed! This movie was also one of my favorite 90's flicks!! Also, holy crap.... Jeremy, whenever you go to Comic Con again... you should totally keep your hair long and go as John Wick!!

You didn't recognize Michael Biehn from Terminator, Abyss, Aliens, and Tombstone? The very image on the cover of Metal Gear was taken from a picture of Biehn playing Kyle Reese in Terminator.

great review, just makes you want to watch it again. as this is one of my top 3 action movies of all time, i have to add though that one of the main factors that made the movie for me is missing here - the soundtrack. which is, imho, hans zimmer's best work; grabs you right from the beginning and doesn't let you go until the fort walton / kansas finale.

Apparently, Quentin Tarantino worked on the script rewrites for this, but was uncredited.

This is not Nick Cage movie, but this is one of the few movies from Michael Bay, which I also like (The Rock is the best). The movie is The Island (2005). Can you also do review on this one?

Not only are the lead actors really strong, but there are plenty of character actors that are real pros such as David Morse, John Spencer, William Forsythe, John McGinley and Tony Todd. It all came together here just right for Bay and it shows.

4:26 Fun Fact ... Hideo Kojima really took Michael Biehn's likeness and put it on the Box Art of the Original Metal Gear Game ... and did it back in 1987.. way before The Rock... (he took inspiration from the first Terminator movie 1984)

In the Metal Gear Solid References ... Id put Ed Harris' speech to the night vision camera thing 3:27 in the same vein as the Codec conversations Snake would have with his contacts

The holy trinity of Nicolas Cage with the Rock being one? I'm betting the other two are Face/Off and Con Air. Yeah Nic Cage was a genuine action star for a short couple of years.
