"Air Force One" is an action picture so full of excitement that it had me on the edge of my seat when I first saw it on the big screen back in 1997. This movie is one heck of a ride. Harrison Ford gives one of the best performances of his career as one U.S. President not to mess with. There are also terrific performances turned in by Glenn Close as the Vice President who deals with the terrorist's demands, and Gary Oldman in a scary piece of acting as the lead terrorist. The other actors in the movie do a good job also. In addition to the performances, there are two other big <more>
elements that make "Air Force One" a great movie: the special effects and action scenes; and the presence of the plane itself. The action scenes are some of the best I've ever seen. And when we first see the plane from the inside, it looks as if were on a tour of the actual Air Force One itself and it's fascinating. Suspenseful, thrilling, and just downright exciting, "Air Force One" is a definite must-see.**** out of four
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 <more>
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.
Excellently acted & portrayed. Slightly futuristic but believable. (by bobperlman)
A1 acting and casting. Story-line excellent but slightly unbelievable as to the "special effects", such as the escape capsule. Highly rated, nonetheless. Harrison Ford, as per his norm, does a magnificent and highly believable job in his portrayal of the President - Some day we might have a president that is so action-oriented - but I doubt if we would in my lifetime.
The Best Victory Against Terrorists ! (by fernandez_1989)
This movie shows with total realism the heroism of a band of American people when their plane is high-jacked by terrorists. Harrison Ford plays the US President and he is not going to make things easy for terrorists- that's for sure. In my country we see Harrison Ford as a true American hero. He rocks in every movie.The great storyline and wonderful acting of a great cast full of amazing American actors will make you enjoy this superb production that has everything.Good drama and spontaneous signs of patriotism, together with a powerful script and unexpected ending. This movie shows a lot <more>
of good things about how Americans deal successfully against terrorists. They have got what it takes and know how to lead.All in all it is a must see and you will always remember some good quotes along the whole movie. Specially people from Europe and Asia will love this excellent movie which has everything.
Why can't our president kick this much ***? Air Force One seemed like a pure action movie to me. And I loved it. Some parts could have been a little more believeable, but it was still very fun and entertaining.The acting in this movie was good. Harrison Ford, as always, did an excellent job as the star of this movie. Gary Oldman, the greatest movie bad guy of all time, did not disappoint. It was cool to see Glenn Close as the vice president, keeping the blood-sucking politicians at bay. Another great performance, although not given enough credit, is from William H. Macy, who is one of my <more>
favorite of the lesser known actors.The storyline is fair, but nothing special or too original. The only difference is in this case, the president is not a hostage but the man fighting the terrorists. Terrorists manage to hijack Air Force One and kidnap many important people, the presidents kids, some politicans, some secret service guys and a bunch of extras they threw in to fill up the plane. They thought the president had escaped, but the truth was he stayed behind to fight the terrorists, retake the plane and save his family.This movie is a great action flick which I enjoyed a lot. It's not meant to be ground-breaking or anything like that, it's just meant to be enjoyed. So go out and enjoy it!
Granted, the premise is not even remotely plausible, but then again, can you name an action movie that is realistic? I can't. By nature, action movies are over-the-top, but it's the director's job to make sure that the audience believes what is happening on screen is real. Peter Jackson did it for "Lord of the Rings," and Wolfgang Peterson does it for "Air Force One." President James Marshall Harrison Ford has just announced that the United States will not negotiate with terrorists after capturing a renegade Kazakhstani general. He's soon going to find <more>
out just how far he is willing to go to keep his word after Air Force One is hijacked by a group of terrorists led by Gary Oldman in a frightening performance who want the general released.Harrison Ford has been hailed as one of the all-time favorite movie presidents, and rightly so. He makes Marshall into both a powerful man who does the right thing but also a family man. In what is arguably the film's most tense scene, he hides in horror while upstairs there is a tragedy going on that he cannot logically stop.While Ford is excellent as the heroic president-turned-action hero, the film is stolen from him by Gary Oldman. Ivan Korushnov, the lead terrorist is a dangerous, intelligent radical who has no moral boundaries. There is no "line" to be crossed; there is nothing he won't do to get what he wants. Oldman plays him with such intensity and villainy that he's absolutely terrifying. This is a villain you won't soon forget.In an action movie, the action sequences are the stars of the show, and "Air Force One" doesn't disappoint. They aren't merely impressive, they're spectacular. The film opens with a scene like something straight out of Rainbow Six, and after calming down for about twenty minutes, it goes full force into all-out action. The visuals are top-notch, including a mid-air battle that puts "True Lies" to shame.Credit must go to Wolfgang Peterson for crafting such a wild thrill ride. He works best in claustrophobic situations, and he makes good use out of the inside and out of a plane. The pacing is relentless; once the film starts it doesn't stop until the end. There's a lot going on, but by limiting his focus to the plane and the White House where a helpless Vice President Glenn Close tries to avoid doing the inevitable , Peterson avoids confusion."Air Force One" isn't flawless, however. There's one spot where a cut was clearly made, and some of the dialogue could have been rewritten. As it is, "Air Force One" is a flight you won't want to miss forgive the cliché .Interesting note: The studio and Harrison Ford tried to get a PG-13 rating for the film. After seeing it, I don't know who in the right mind could think that was even possible. The film is hyper-violent, and even the MPAA wouldn't sink THAT low yet ...My rating: Rated R for Strong Violence and Language.
Air Force One is one great ride. What makes it work so well is the conviction that Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman bring to their roles. You can see in each actor's eyes that they stand behind what they believe in. Gary Oldman makes a perfect villian and a very complex one at that. He is not just an average, run of the mill madman. He has a family, he is someone's son and those facts make him that much more real. Harrison Ford is great as the president. He's strong, quick witted, and will do anything he can to save his family and staff from the hijackers. A good ride that will keep <more>
you on the edge of your seat for two hours, just as long as you don't ask any questions.
Will the real president please stand up? (by departed07)
I know what you're thinking, "What the hell is he saying?" It's true that we've had so many biographies about presidents in which some of the movies told about historic incidents, why not have a fictional president that could kick ass and take names? Harrison Ford is the man for the job."Air Force One" is a thriller that involves Russian terrorist Ivan Korshunov Gary Oldman and his gang of criminals hijacking the first plane along with the president's wife and child and his staff. Meanwhile, President James Marshall Harrison Ford is hiding after an <more>
attack on the ship where he must reunite with his family before they end up victims to Ivan's plan if the president doesn't release a Russian prisoner who happens to be a general and a terrorist.The film itself is a nail bitter thriller with an all star cast as Ford and Oldman play their usual good guy/villain roles with Glenn Close, Wendy Crewson, Xander Berkerly and William H. Macy in supporting roles. If there was such thing where Harrison Ford had a nomination for president, I would vote.
Good action adventure epic soars through the sky. (by Aaron1375)
The movies plot itself is highly improbable, and there are a lot of factual errors, but do you want a documentary or do ya want to see a cool action movie featuring a butt kicking president played by the guy who did Han Solo? What we have here are some terrorist from Russia I think why are terrorist from countries that don't actually have gripes with us in the movies taking over air force one with president and family in tow. Of course, the president does not get captured, but instead eludes the terrorist and complicates matters for them as he frees some of the hostages and instead of <more>
leaving himself stays to get his family back. The movie seems to run a little long in places and there are a couple of pointless plot points the whole Dean Stockwell character , overall though and mainly it is a cool action movie in the same vein as Die Hard or other movies where you have the one free guy making trouble for the bad guys. Speaking of bad guys, Gary Oldman is pretty good here as the head bad guy, so is most of the cast of this flick. Harrison Ford is usually good in anything so he fits right in here and makes for a very heroic albeit unrealistic president.
