In the latest in our ongoing series of film reviews, research and analysis discussions Henri from Fortress on a Hill had me on to talk about the 1996 schlockbuster The Rock, starring Nic Cage and Sean Connery.  We get into how the film is a classic case of deradicalisation but a few remnants of the original, highly subversive script remain.  I talk a bit about other 1990s movies that have related characters, including Entrapment and Con Air, while Henri does most of the serious commentary on chemical weapons, zombie soldiers and the ethics of using the threat of violence to seek moral restitution.
