Synopsis

Double bill of action thrillers starring Nicolas Cage. In 'Gone in 60 Seconds' (2000), legendary car thief Randall 'Memphis' Raines (Cage) is forced to come out of retirement when his brother Kip (Giovanni Ribisi) ends up in debt to evil mobster Raymond Calitri (Christopher Eccleston). Charged with stealing fifty cars by Friday, Randall sets about reassembling his old team - including former lover Sara 'Sway' Wayland (Angelina Jolie), mechanic Otto Halliwell (Robert Duvall) and the silent but strong Toby (Vinnie Jones) - but faces further challenges in the form of rival car thief Donny (Chi McBride) and local detective Roland Castlebeck (Delroy Lindo), who would love to put Randall behind bars once and for all. 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 (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.
