The Rock

The Rock ★★★★½

Man, this movie “rocks” so much more than it has to. It’s Michael Bay at his best, with a solid script and some really excellent set pieces. This movie is really elevated to the next level by Ed Harris’ performance. His last few scenes in the film display more nuance than the rest of Bay’s filmography combined. He makes General Hummel a truly fantastic 90s villain, one who is intimidating while also being three dimensional and believable as a human being. Truly one of the best action films of the post Die Hard era
