Forget James Bond. Sean Connery Was The Sexiest On ‘The Rock’

Sean Connery’s legacy will forever be defined by his seven rounds as Ian Fleming’s dashing British spy, James Bond. Yet the illustrious Scotsman, who died this morning at the age of 90, was more than just 007, as evidenced by a renowned filmography that includes gems as varied and stellar as that of Alfred Hitchcock. Marnie (1964), by John Huston The man who wanted to be king (1975), by Brian De Palma The Incorruptibles (1987) – for which he won his only Oscar, for Best Supporting Actor – by Steven Spielberg Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989) and Red October Hunting (1990). Yet perhaps none of his post-Bond performances are as electrifyingly macho, humorous, and purely Connery-esque as his turn into a 1995 action extravaganza as out-of-the-way and entertaining as his iconic character.

Yes i’m talking about The rock.

Before Michael Bay fully invested himself in the orgiastic celebrations of the CGI spectacle, obscene titillation and the military-industrial complex, he crafted one of the most significant blockbusters of the 90s with The rock, the story of a rogue Marine Brigadier General named Frank Hummel (Ed Harris) who decides to take revenge on the US government by taking control of Alcatraz and threatening to launch chemical weapons rockets at San Francisco if his demands are not met. To counter this senseless insurgency threat, which is complicated by the fact that the island’s prison is famously a fortress that no one can get out of (or into), the incumbent US powers are adopting an absurd plan of action. , awkward pairing chemist Dr Stanley Goodspeed (Nicolas Cage) with the only person who ever managed to escape Alcatraz: former SAS captain John Patrick Mason (Connery), who as a reward for his unparalleled feat was locked away in secret for two decades.
