This is one of the best action movies I have ever seen! Even though the movie is from 1996, I saw it for the first time a couple of days ago, but this movie has not deteriorated with age and is still an excellent movie.
The Rock was certainly better than I had expected. Great cast (especially Sean Connery), great action, some humor, and awesome music ensure that this is a highly enjoyable movie. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone who is looking for an entertaining top-notch action movie.
When I watched the movie I recognized some parts of the music, and a little research turned up that it was used in Expedition: Robinson, the Swedish version of Survivor. I can understand why as the music is at times magnificent.
