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.

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.

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

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.

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.

The stalking struggle between reason and unreason that precedes it is much more gripping--and fun.

It's a gamble. Air Force One goes against the current grain of presenting presidents in movies as evil or idiotic, or mock heroic, as in last year's 'Independence Day.'

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

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.

Air Force One gets the job done.
