Everything about it was unreal, except it did a big box office.

Well executed action thriller by Das Boot German director Petersen, which is rather weak in plot and characterization.

[An] unabashedly jingoistic action extravaganza starring Harrison Ford as...'The Ass-Kicking President'...[Blu-ray]
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

As the familiar cat-and-mouse plot unfolded, I let myself enjoy the unapologetic masculine thrills.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

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.

Most of the time it's a kick.

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

An adrenaline-pumping political thriller.

It's a great ride.

Moments of silliness are more than balanced by Petersen's extraordinary ability to keep this movie flight-worthy, Ford's almost-executive presence and an outstanding performance from Oldman.

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.

Air Force One doesn't insult the audience. It is crafted by a film-maker who takes pride in the thrills and sly fun he packs into every frame.

calculated with statistical precision to function as both a patriotic call to arms and an emotional tear about a man's family in jeopardy

A piece of expertly crafted entertainment that gets the job done with skill and panache

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

Petersen, known for the efficient and vigorously muscular action of Das Boot and In the Line of Fire, once again directs with galvanizing intensity, but the relentlessness of these thrills carries little in the way of surprise.

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

Up to this moment, every detail ... has been exact ... But, because of that initial realism, audiences accept the fakery of what follows ... a president who, in physical prowess and stamina, makes Arnold Schwarzenegger look limp.
