Synopsis

Action triple-bill starring Nicolas Cage. In 'The Rock' (1996) San Francisco's safety 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. In 'Face/Off' (1997) FBI agent Sean Archer (Cage) uses the miracles of modern science to adopt the face and identity of hospitalised terrorist Castor Troy (John Travolta), then visits Castor's brother in prison to discover the location of a hidden bomb. However, when Castor realises what is happening, he turns the tables by having the same operation performed on himself, taking on Archer's identity and having the FBI agent secured in prison. A confusing game of cat and mouse thus ensues. In 'Gone in 60 Seconds' (2000), a remake of the 1974 car-chase classic, 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. Charged with stealing fifty cars by Friday, Randall sets about reassembling his old team - including former lover Sara 'Sway' Wayland (Angelina Jolie) and mechanic Otto Halliwell (Robert Duvall) - but faces a further challenge in the form of local detective Roland Castlebeck (Delroy Lindo), who would love to put Randall behind bars once and for all.
