"Con Air" is a movie that doesn't take itself seriously, and you shouldn't, either. This is a Bruckenheimer movie that is heavy on action and comedy, and light on plot & character development. Yes, most of the movie is absurd, but it is also absurd in a fun way.
The cast is absolutely impeccable, featuring Nicholas Cage, John Malchovich, Steve Buscemi and John Cusack. We even get Colm Meaney as an irate Irish DEA agent - a wonderful touch! The direction is superb, and Trevor Rabin delivers yet another riveting score.
This is a can't miss for anyone who wants to sit back & watch an hour & a half of hilarious mayhem. This is what I would call a guy movie - squared!
A week later the score CD was mine and loved it until I came to realize the horrible cheapness of the package, the pathetic arrangement and the slight running time (not even reaching 45 minutes).
The main Con Air theme is one of my favorite action themes ever and is the perfect anthem for Cameron Poe, the hero played by Nicolas Cage. It's very heroic and determined. As for the bad guy music, well lemme just say that whenever it kicks in you know Cyrus 'The Virus' Grissom is on screen.
Mark Mancina was originally brought on board to score the movie on his own, but 20th Century Fox cut the post-production schedule for Speed 2: Cruise Control in half, which meant that Mancina had to abandon his work on Con Air and quickly begin work on Speed 2 (which came out a single week after Con Air in June 1997), It was exactly this kind of ludicrous scheduling that caused Mancina to quit movie-scoring. But Trevor Rabin came to the rescue for the Con Air scoring duties, and the style and themes of the movie are split evenly between them.
The music on here on this CD ranges from occasional noise to all out action with several awesome themes. The first track opens with the aforementioned grinding, metallic noise. Several tracks contain some wonderful guitar riffs that bring to mind the blue skies, burning sand and white hot steel featured in the movie. Tracks 13 and 16 are also perfect examples of the action/chase music Media Ventures did so well. It's rousing stuff indeed.Read more ›
