It takes a little while to get going but once it does, it’s a really fun 90s Michael Bay action flick. Nicolas Cage and Sean Connery are so great together. I wish Ed Harris’s character had some more closure though.

“Listen, I think we got started off on the wrong foot. Stan Goodspeed, FBl. Uh – Let’s talk music. Do you like the Elton John song, “Rocket Man”?”

“I don’t like soft-ass shit.”

“Oh, you – Oh, oh. Oh. Well, I only bring it up because, uh, it’s you. You’re the Rocket Man.”
