Air Force One (1997) – A Quick Capsule Review

Air Force One (1997) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Rarely does a film hold up twenty years down the line.  Out of time and out of context, films tend to date.  Even rarer is finding one that is maybe better all these years later.  Well Air Force One could well be that film.  Okay so it’s derivative as hell but it’s a joke that everyone seems to share.  The cast know how silly the film is (even usually straight laced Harrison Ford seems to be having fun) , it has a bundle of decent action sequences and, as always, Gary Oldman does a bang up job taking a text book bad guy character and giving him (a few) layers. Wolfgang Petersen directs solidly and you cant help but smile as the tension and silliness ramps up.  All in all it’s cracking fun.

Best Bit: “Get off my plane”

Die hard… In A School.  Much ignored 90’s action film aimed at kids.  Really good fun.

Die hard… On a  Boat.  One of the better Seagal movies.  Which isn’t saying much these days.

Die hard… On A Plane. Always bet on Black.  Actual line form the film.

Die Hard… In a Airport. Darker, meaner but man it’s great.

Die hard On A… Bus. The best Die Hard clone and a great film in it’s own right.
