Synopsis

Box set containing three popular action thrillers starring Nicolas Cage. In 'Face/Off' (1997), FBI agent Sean Archer (John Travolta) seeks revenge on terrorist Castor Troy (Nicolas Cage), who killed his son six years earlier. While Castor is comatose, Archer adopts his face and identity through the miracles of modern science. Archer, as Castor, then visits Castor's brother Pollux (Alessandro Nivola) in prison to discover the location of a hidden bomb. However, when he awakes, Castor turns the tables by having the same operation performed and taking on Archer's identity, having the FBI agent secured in prison. A confusing game of cat and mouse thus ensues. In 'The Rock' (1996), the safety of San Francisco hangs in the balance when General Francis X. Hummel (Ed Harris) and his renegade squad of US Marines take over the abandoned Alcatraz prison and threaten to launch a poison gas attack on the city if their demands are not met. The FBI's response is to call in Stanley Goodspeed (Nicolas Cage), a nerdy weapons expert, and John Patrick Mason (Sean Connery), a former SAS man who has been in prison for the last 30 years, and send them together into the prison complex. Can this unlikely pairing prevent mass murder? The free world holds its breath. Finally, in 'Con Air' (1997), former Army Ranger Cameron Poe (Cage) is returning home on parole to his wife and child after serving eight years for manslaughter. The plane he is flying on is a special convict-only transport plane filled with some of the meanest and deadliest villains of them all. Once in the air, however, the plane is hijacked by convict Cyrus 'The Virus' Grissom (John Malkovich), who gets rid of the plane's crew (prison guards) at the first scheduled stop, picking up more convicts as he does so. But US Marshal Vince Larkin (John Cusack) is already on his trail. Poe does his best to stop Grissom from escaping with the group of convicts, and just to complicate matters further his diabetic cellmate Baby-O reveals that he will die if he does not receive his next insulin injection within two hours.
