A Great Thriller!
Air Force One is a very good thriller. The action and suspense will be
nothing to forget. This movie is about the President's plane, Air Force
One being hijacked by Russian nationalists with the President on board.
Now it's up to the President and the Vice-President to negotiate with
the terrorists or the hostages will die. The acting in this film is
pretty good. Harrison Ford did justice with his outstanding performance
as the President. Gary Oldman is good as the evil terrorist. The music
in this film is fabulous and patriotic considering that the score took
two weeks by Jerry Goldmith to compose. I liked the effects in this
film. There is nothing special, but for a film from 1997, this has good
effects even though there are few. Overall, this is a good movie for
everybody except for kids. This film is a moving picture with
outstanding courage. My rating is 10/10..

It's A Bit Over The Top But It Has Lots Of Good Action
To state the obvious right off the top, I find it very hard to accept
the basic premise of this movie: that Air Force One could be hijacked.
However, it's an action movie, and how many of those are really
believable anyway? So one has to judge this for its ability to excite
and to entertain and every now and then to get your heart pumping. It
manages to do all three of those things generally pretty well.
Harrison Ford was an obvious choice to play the lead in this. As James
Marshall, he's the President of the United States, who recently
committed the US to ousting a brutal dictator in Kazakhstan and having
him thrown into prison, whose followers commit themselves to getting
him released by taking the President hostage. Ford portrays the actions
parts of this movie pretty well; somehow, when he was functioning as
President away from the action scenes, I found him less convincing.
Back in Washington there's uncertainty about whether the Vice President
or the Secretary of Defense are in command of US troops given the
president's "incapacity" - shades perhaps of Bush-Haig after the Reagan
shooting of 1981. Glenn Close put on a solid performance as the Vice
There's good excitement all the way through this. The setting of the
plane is used to good effect. Air Force One being - well - Air Force
One, it's not your typical plane. It has lots of office space and
various other areas where one can hide, making the cat and mouse game
the president plays with the hijackers pretty suspenseful. There was a
very effective portrayal of the emotional turmoil the other hostages
must have felt after the president was finally captured and was having
the tar beaten out of him as they watched in growing discomfort. It
perhaps went a bit too over the top at the end, with the rescue mission
trying to get the president and others off the plane before it crashed.
Perhaps the movie should have ended with the defeat of the hijackers
and the movie shortened by 15 minutes or so. Still, it's pretty
entertaining, and a wild high altitude ride..
