Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
Dir: Michael Bay
FBI chemical weapons specialist Nicolas Cage and ex-convict Sean Connery (the only man to successfully escape from Alcatraz, aka "The Rock"), are enlisted to break into the former prison when a disgruntled U.S. general (Ed Harris) goes over the edge, seizing the island with his elite commandos and threatening to attack San Francisco if his demands aren’t met. Bruckheimer’s first film after splitting with partner Don Simpson, THE ROCK is a mega-octane action machine, delivered with characteristic skill and humor by director Michael Bay and acted by a superb cast including Cage, Connery, David Morse, Michael Biehn and William Forsythe.
This entertaining heist picture is based on a real-life robbery that took place in Spain in the mid-1950s. When the wife of Spanish dictator Francisco Franco sets her eye on jewels that once belonged to the late Eva Perón (of Evita fame), two Argentine loyalists (Guillermo Francella and Nicolás Cabré) decide to steal them first. Director Cortés (THE PELAVOS) deftly polishes the comic, romantic and serious facets of this crowd-pleasing gem. “Smartly written, energetically executed and notably well cast down to the smallest of roles.” - Neil Young, The Hollywood Reporter In Spanish with English subtitles.
Sebastian (Daniel Hendler) meets Natalia (Valeria Bertuccelli) while he's trying to steal an important piece of art from a museum - but she beats him to it. Though rivals, they must work together to pilfer a unique and very expensive bottle of Malbec de Bourdeos from the mid-19th century that’s now locked away in a heavily guarded bank vault in Mendoza, Argentina. In this glamorous place, among mountains and vineyards, the thieves pull out all the stops, only to discover that nothing is what it appears to be in this crowd-pleasing heist comedy. In Spanish with English subtitles.
