Admit've always wondered what would happen if Harrison Ford were the President, haven't you! Well this pretty much answers that question, he'd kick butt and not negotiate with terrorists. In this case the President and his family are on Air Force One (how did you guess) when suddenly they find out that some of the crew are actually evil Russian hi-jackers. They vow to kill a hostage every half hour until their demands are met but as I mentioned earlier Mr. President is only interested in negotiating with his fist! It's pretty straightforward and predictable, and let's face it, it's not earth shatteringly unique. Still it delivers exactly what one might expect and it has some exciting moments...all in all not a bad little thriller.

Availability:  On DVD
