4.0 out of 5 stars Stars and Stripes forever, 12 Sept. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Air Force One [DVD] [1997] (DVD)
I have read some of the reviews that criticise this film for its jingoistic and simplistic world view but that is really to miss the point. This is an Action Adventure movie ,in the mould of the Die Hard movies and,on that level, this is a superb film.Yes the Americans are the good guys and the Russians are the bad guys but the scene where a fighter pilot sacrifices himself to save the President is brilliant and I think probably does reflect America`s attitude to the office of President. The President is America.
And isn`t it fun, just for once, in these cynical times, to enjoy a little of the American pride in their country.
If nothing else enjoy the stirring music provided by Jerry Goldsmith!

I completely agree with you; great review.

To be honest, even in it's genre, it's not superb IMO. The effects are so so, the plot is ridiculous, there's too much blatant manipulation of emotions, the baddies are one dimensional (probably only semi saved by Gary Oldman putting in his usual excellent effort), and way too much of it is unintentionally hilarious. Even as a summer blockbuster, it's too predictable to be exciting. Superb? Hmmm. Not so much.

Ridiculous plot? It's the dream plot for an action film! Not superb in your opnion; however I think most people can appreciate it for what it is. Fantastic film; 4 stars at least.
