Film Review

By Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat

 

Air Force One
Directed by Wolfgang Peterson
Columbia TriStar 07/97 DVD/VHS Feature Film
R -- violence

Air Force One is an adrenaline-pumping political thriller that doesn't let up from start to finish. It is filled with one surprise after another. U.S. President James Marshall (Harrison Ford) is in Russia to celebrate the imprisonment of General Radek, a fascist leader responsible for the deaths of thousands of people; in Moscow, he pledges that the United States will not tolerate terrorism. Then, as the presidential entourage is returning home, a group loyal to Radek and led by Ivan (Gary Oldman) take over Air Force One, saying they will execute passengers until their leader is released. Negotiations are set up with Vice President Kathryn Bennett (Glenn Close) who struggles to make the right decisions while being pressed by her military advisors.

What no one has factored into the scenario is President Marshall's military training; he received a Medal of Honor for his service in Vietnam. To save the lives of his wife (Wendy Crewson) and daughter (Liesel Matthews) this brave and bold man of action makes his stand against the terrorists. Harrison Ford proves his mettle once again as an all-American hero.
