CIA analyst Jack Ryan must thwart the plans of a terrorist faction that threatens to induce a catastrophic conflict between the United States and Russia's newly elected president by detonating a nuclear weapon at a football game in Baltimore.
The President of the USA goes to Moscow and gives a stirring speech outlining the USA's new "Zero-tolerance" policy with respect to terrorism. On the flight home, terrorists take over Air Force One (the President's official plane) and take the passengers (including his wife and daughter) hostage. The terrorists plan to execute one hostage every half-hour unless/until their demands are met. However, the President is a former Medal of Honor winner, so the terrorists may be in for a surprise...

When Air Force One is on the ground at Ramstein, there is a cargo plane in its path but takes off narrowly missing it.The minimum take off distance is over 10,000 feet long, but the scale of the plane looks like only several hundred feet away. Also when AF-1 does take off there is a view from the plane looking down at the tarmac and the vehicles that were in pursuit the cargo plane is gone. See more »

What a movie! TROMA eat your heart out! Multi-million budget for a B class Under Siege rip-off(which was a B-movie itself). This is one of the worst movies so far, among there with Battlefield Earth and Star Wars Episode 1. UNBELIEVABLY bad! Wooden Ford, monstrous Russians, killing in the name of MOTHER-RUSSIA, battle with MIGs - that a movie to watch! The best part is where Russians are singing INTERNATIONAL at jail and everyone in White House, on board of hijacked plane hears them through intercom.The hole thing looks and feel like a cold war movie made in 70's. SUMMARY: Either 1 or 10(if you like a good kitsch film).
