National Treasure vs. Con Air



Any one else remember when Nicholas Cage was good? I do. In CON AIR. (Though I liked NT too.)

For me, the first National Treasure loses steam after he steals the Declaration of Independence. (I thought the sequel was better.) But Con Air just never did anything for me. It was an opportunity for some decent actors to ham it up, and John Cusack to sleepwalk his way to a paycheck.

Nic Cage takes a bad rap. He's a great actor that picks a variety of roles to flex his ability. His action picks have been damn good fun. If Con Air had a better ending, it would be an all-time classic.
