So, the General takes the President prisoner and launches an offensive of his own. And the Vice President is the only one who can do something about it. And the Vice President's a woman.Written by
This is not a good film. If I'd paid money to see it I would feel cheated. However as a made-for-TV "action" thriller it's a fairly enjoyable romp if you don't take it too seriously. It tries hard to be Air Force One with a bit of Die Hard 2 and Under Siege thrown in, but it fails miserably on it's meagre budget. The film saves on cash by using newsreel footage whenever a touch of realism is called for.
There's the usual group of insane high ranking patriots trying to destroy the world and even an innocent little boy (where would these films be without him?). The main character, a female vice-president, is astonishingly unbelievable in what would normally be a male role. The idea of an attractive female politician single-handedly overcoming a small army of crack troops and CIA-types just doesn't work, I'm sorry.
