Running Time: 124 mins

Air Force One is an American film about the hijacking of the Presidential aircraft by Kazakh terrorists, and after it is assumed that the President has escaped to safety, he must save his family, and everyone on board from being killed by these terrorists.

This movie was fantastic! It had absolutely everything in it: action, drama, explosions, gun battles, and Indiana Jones (sorry, Harrison Ford). This has to be one of the coolest films I’ve ever seen, and although it may seem a cheesy Hollywood movie, it is nothing of the sort.

The story of this film was brilliant in my opinion. Initially, it seemed over the top, preposterous and predictable, but by the end, it becomes one of the most exciting and tense films of the year, which makes it a true delight to watch.

Overall, I’ll give this an 8.9 because it was really good fun to watch, it had a great story, fantastic action, it was filled with suspense and it was all in all just a very good film!
