Harrison Ford can't save Air Force One

Air Force One has neither the wit to laugh at its own absurdity nor the wisdom to mock its pretensions.

Rob Blackwelder

Air Force One hasn't a moment of genuine tension because every development is entirely expected.

Looking Closer

It's embarrassing to see [Ford] hanging by a thread ... behind his own 747. No image better fits the fragile state of his [career] at this point... he's losing his grip.

It would take a far more intelligent movie than Air Force One to credibly explore the issues raised by this hyperactive plot.

The two hours of this movie felt like such an eternity that I was certain my clothes were going to be out of style by the time it was over.

What separates Air Force One from other action/adventure movies is that an audience cannot ignore the silly bits.

Unfortunately, as the film winds to a close, claustrophobic tension once again gives way to overblown digital effects and set pieces.

A die-hardly pic that pits President Rambo against Oldman's boilerplate Russian hijacker.

Harrison Ford is one of the most likable and convincing of movie stars, and he almost pulls off the impossible in Air Force One.' I don't mean he saves the day; I mean he almost saves the movie.

As it is, the movie is a roller coaster ride for those who prefer not to think once the theater lights have dimmed.

Seeing the president of the United States as a kick-butt action hero pretty much sums up the appeal of Air Force One

As the familiar cat-and-mouse plot unfolded, I let myself enjoy the unapologetic masculine thrills.

Air Force One is a spellbinding film, one that grips the viewer from the very start and doesn't let up until 140 minutes later, plot holes or no.

With any expectations of real-life adventure safely out of mind, you can relish 1997's megahit "Air Force One" as one heck of a joy ride.
