Spoiler Alert!

Lo­ca­tion: Las Vegas, Ne­vada Movie: Con Air - 1997 (and a lot more)

Fast Car - - Out There -

There’s loads of awe­some movies that have been filmed in Vegas, lit­er­ally hun­dreds of them. Some par­tic­u­lar FC favourites in­clude: Ocean’s Eleven (and Twelve and Thir­teen), Viva Las Vegas, Rocky 3 and 4, Heat, Rain Man, An­other 48 Hours, Show­girls, Mars At­tacks!, Austin Pow­ers, Lethal Weapon 4, Rush Hour 2, Iron Man and Last Vegas. Phew! Ob­vi­ously there’s The Hang­over movies too, which, af­ter a men­tal SEMA week, was a con­cept far closer to our hearts than we would have liked.

So, what all time great Vegas movie to pick here? Well, although Casino is my per­sonal favourite, just for the leg­endary ‘head in a vice’ scene (you sicko – Jules), you’ve just got to give it to Con Air for max­i­mum im­pact.

I mean that lit­er­ally too - the crew ac­tu­ally crashed the plane through the lobby of the fa­mous Sands Ho­tel at the end of the film! At least they had per­mis­sion though, the ho­tel was al­ready sched­uled for de­mo­li­tion a few weeks later. The Vene­tian now stands on the site.
