One thing - Con Air is NOT a crap film. It might be over the top and ridiculous, but it's an action movie ffs and it's entertaining as hell.

Really p!sses me off when people go on about movies like Con Air, being crap.

A crap movie would be something like 'Gigli' or Scary Movie 27.

Good call, thought of Con Air when I read the title. Any time I see it in the listings I laugh "Con Air, what a pile of crap" and end up watching it.

By that definition, YOU think it's good even though, critically, it may not be. So where do you draw the line with that?

You could end up saying this about most films - ''load of rubbish, but I like it''. Makes no sense to me.

I know its crap yet I find it hilarious!

Also Con Air is a masterpiece, with a great cast, a great soundtrack, a good plot line and filled with cracking stunts. I love it!

It has a decent cast but the storyline is ridiculous. Having said that, it's bloody good fun. Would definitely be in my top 10 action films.

Chuck Norris movies during the 80's were crap like The Delta Force & Invasion USA.

Crap, but funny, entertaining crap all the same.
