For years Brigadier General Francis Xavier Hummel, a decorated military hero, has petitioned the United States Government to honor his men who have lost their lives in service to their country during highly covert military operations by providing their families the same benefits and tributes due other war veterans. For years his efforts have been scorned. Now, angry and determined to seek justice, Hummel and a crack team of commandos seize control of Alcatraz Island, taking hostage a group of tourists. If reparations are not immediately forthcoming, Hummel plans to launch a battery of rockets charged with lethal V.X. poison gas on the San Francisco Bay Area. The city's only hope for survival is FBI chemical/biological weapons expert, Stanley Goodspeed, and a top-secret federal prisoner, John Patrick Mason, who also happens to be the only known convict to have escaped the island fortress. With the clock ticking, this unlikely and reluctant duo, escorted by a U.S. Navy Seal team, embark on a desperate bid to infiltrate the island and detoxify the weapons before disaster strikes.




  • Fantastic

    By Tubby31003
    Please note that this movie is pretty cliche but it’s the best cliche movie I’ve ever scene. The score is absolutely fitting for its atmosphere, and the acting is nearly flawless (minus a few Nicholas Cage moments).
  • Action packed

    Got to see it
  • A Classic Action Flick!

    One of my favorites. Nicolas Cage, Sean Connery, Ed Harris and Michael Biehn make for a great edge of your seat thrill ride! The intro with Ed Harris is moving. His character's confliciting loyalties add an emotional angle to what could have been just another wam bam action movie.
  • Love the movie, hate the price!!

    Why is this movie not $9.99 or Less? If it was I would definitely buy it!! C'mon iTunes!!
  • Excessive F-Bomb Language

    By VidKid71
    While I very much enjoyed the movie, we had to stop watching as the excessive use of the F-word was offensive. I find such language unnecessary, callous and irresponsible in movies. I’d pay more for family-friendly or “made for TV" versions of shows like this, though.

  • Number 3 on my top 10 action movie list

    By Mr.parkour
    This is a great film. One of my personal favorites. The action is great, it has some funny moments, and it and if it has Sean Connery and it is directed by micheal bay, it has to be good. Overal, superb film. i highly recomend. Now, whenever i play it on my ipod, or my laptop, it always has a spaz attack at around 45:00 like their was a scratch on the disc. If you know how to fix this please help me. Thank you.
