THE ROCK (1996)
In order to sneak into Alcatraz the FBI forcefully recruits escape artist/ex-spy Sean Connery (the only man to have successfully snuck out of Alcatraz) to lead a group of Navy SEALS and FBI chemical weapons nerd Nicholas Cage into "the Rock". They do, but soon all kinds of stuff happens and next thing you know it's up to the nerd to save the day.
Even all these years later THE ROCK is still an entertaining ride. Dumb story, impressive cast, fast pace, worried girlfriend looking all worried, Sean Connery's accent, a runaway coal mine cart chase. Recommended.
