The 50 Best Movies of the '90s

45. Con Air (1997)

Director: Simon West
Stars: Nicolas Cage, John Cusack, John Malkovich, Monica Potter, Ving Rhames, Mykelti Williamson, Nick Chinlund, Rachel Ticotin, Steve Buscemi

Poor, wrongly imprisoned Nic Cage gets released, then has the gosh-forsaken luck to be on a prisoner transport plane full of insane killers and Dave Chappelle-who then of course take over the plane. You name the creepy movie badass (John Malkovich, Steve Buscemi, Danny Trejo) and they're in it. A classic ensemble murderfest. —VC
