The Americans love their president and Hollywood loves putting him into its movies. And who better to play him as a highly decorated war hero than Indiana Jones himself, Harrison Ford. When the First Family is held hostage on board the presidential jumbo jet, Air Force One, by a ruthless gang of Russian terrorists led by Gary Oldman, President James Marshall (Ford) decides to fight back and escapes into the plane's hold. Meanwhile Glenn Close's veep is left to take Oldman's phone calls in Washington. The midair mayhem never lets up in a stunt-filled thriller that's brimming with nasty villains and daring deeds.


The American president is forced to take drastic measures to save his family when their plane is hijacked by Russian terrorists demanding the release of a jailed radical general. Meanwhile, the vice president tries to manage the crisis from Washington and has to decide whether to shoot the aircraft down. Action thriller, starring Harrison Ford, Gary Oldman, Glenn Close, Dean Stockwell and William H Macy.
