Bill and Jo Harding, advanced storm chasers on the brink of divorce, must join together to create an advanced weather alert system by putting themselves in the cross-hairs of extremely violent tornadoes.
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...

In December 2015, presidential candidate, politician and real estate tycoon Donald Trump revealed his admiration for "Harrison Ford on the plane ... He stood up for America." Donald was greatly inspired by Harrison's performance in the film that he took it too seriously. When Ford was told during a TV interview of Trump's compliment, he turned it down to the camera and said "Donald, it was just a movie. Things like this don't happen in real life." See more »
At 1:43:32, The Vice President (Glen Close) asks a general what a symbol on the situation board means. She is told the "red dot" represents Russian MiG fighters approaching to intercept Air Force 1. She then interrupts a military officer briefing President Marshall on flying/landing procedures by saying that "we are tracking six MiG's closing on your position." However it was never specified to her how many Russian MiG's are scrambled, only that the red dot represented them. See more »

Per Marshall's comment to her, the aide who helps him with the fax machine (portrayed by Messiri Freeman) is listed in the credits as "Future Postmaster General". See more »
Five things we learn after watching this movie: 1.All Russians are either terrorists or cowards. 2.MP5, MP5K, M4 and Sig Sauer PRO are superior wonders of Western weaponary, which need no reloading ever. 3.When 6 Russian fighters attack Air Force One only one of them will fire at a time.(Courtesy towards enemy anti-missle system, I guess:)) 4.In air combat, Russian pilots never maneuver, even when targeted, guess, there is no chance to escape superior American missiles, so they don't bother anyway. 5.When a terrorist fires a gun, the bullet is stopped by body armor. When President fires the same gun, bullets go through armor like a knife through butter. 2/10 for casting Oldman.
