AIR FORCE ONE (Theatrical Release USA 1997)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì

Air Force One
—classic terrorist film—presents a phenomenal Harrison Ford as President of the United States with an outstanding back-up cast of William H. Macy, Glenn Close, Paul Guilfoyle, and Gary Oldman. This movie works because it is not predictable. There are nice surprises built into the story that keep audience attention. The well-timed action scenes with tension kept at a sustainable level throughout the film make this movie a good watch. Great work for Director Wolfgang Petersen.
