Air Force One (1997)

The President of the United States is on his way home after making a interesting speech (which they affectionately call the “Be Afraid Speech”) about not negotiating with terrorists. Ironically, a few hours later while on Air Force One, Russian terrorists pretending to be newspaper reporters hijack the plane. They want the President to make a call to Moscow and release General Radek. They believe that the President has escaped in the pod, but unbeknown to everyone on the plane the president is really still on board on the baggage deck below and attempts to regain control of the plane and to rescue his wife and daughter. This film is incredibly exciting, with non-stop action and amazing performances by Ford who plays a terrific President and Oldman, who plays a heartless, and incredibly evil villain. Starring Harrison Ford, Gary Oldman, Glenn Close, Wendy Crewson, William H. Macy, Liesel Matthews 8/10
