Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman star in this thriller about a steadfast U.S. President who has just told the world he will not negotiate with terrorists. Now, Russian neo-nationalists have hijacked Air Force One and the President is faced with a nearly impossible decison: give in to terrorist demands or sacrifice not only the country's dignity, but the lives of his wife and daughter.


Idiotic Machine-gun battles at 30,000 ft. The wingtip of a 747 used as a hedge trimmer. The president of the US as an anatomically correct action figure. Big budget Hollywood productions don't get much stupider than this. Gotta love that tacky product placement for "Bud", a bland movie, an even blander beer. If someone were to ask me which side I was rooting for, I'd have to take the Fifth. Socio-political note: That peculiar US form of address, "Mr. President", has always sounded completely ridiculous when a simple "President" would suffice. Here we're forced to hear Glenn Close called "Madame Vice President" over and over and over again. If ever a reason for not electing a woman were needed ...
