About the Movie

The fate of the nation rests on the courage of one man. Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman star in two-time Oscar® nominee Wolfgang Petersen's gripping thriller about an uncompromising U.S. President who has just told the world he will not negotiate with terrorists. When Russian neo-nationalists hijack Air Force One, the world's most secure and extraordinary aircraft, the President is faced with a nearly impossible decision to give in to terrorist demands or sacrifice not only the country's dignity, but the lives of his wife and daughter.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: 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. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: 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. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Nov 24, 2006

Fresh: The stalking struggle between reason and unreason that precedes it is much more gripping--and fun. – Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: 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. – Charles Taylor,, Mar 7, 2001

i can't believe i'm the first. this movie is simply amazing. one of the the highlights of ford's career

An Awesome Movie

This movie is amazing. It is fact paced and action packed. Harrison Ford is awesome. (I would like to see George Bush do any of that!!)

Good Movie

Unfortunately, its so dang violent. That's why I only watch it when it's on TV, which seems to be rare nowadays. Anyways, I like the tension in this movie. It's really a good movie, just watch it on TV to get away from the violent scenes and who knows what else they cut out.
