THE EYE ON PRIZES: THE GREAT VIDEO GIVEAWAY

One of last summer's blockbusters, The Rock (cert 15) starring Sean Connery and Nicolas Cage, is a cocktail of action, adventure and comedy which boasts a well- crafted script. After its success at the box office, The Rock is now available to buy on video (pounds 14.99).

Courtesy of Hollywood Pictures Home Video, we have 10 copies on offer The film tells the story of disgruntled General Hummel (Ed Harris) who leads a crack team of mercenary commandoes to seize control of Alcatraz - known as The Rock. He threatens to plunge San Francisco into chaos with the use of chemical weapons if his demands are not met. With tourists being held hostage and the lives of millions of Americans at stake, a young FBI chemical weapons expert (Cage) and a top-secret federal prisoner (Connery) - the only convict ever to have escaped the island fortress - provide the only hope of saving the day.
