Storyline

When Air Force One is shot down by terrorists leaving the President of the United States stranded in the wilderness, there is only one person around who can save him - a 13-year old boy called Oskari. In the forest on a hunting mission to prove his maturity to his kinsfolk, Oskari had been planning to track down a deer, but instead discovers the most powerful man on the planet in an escape pod. With the terrorists closing in to capture their own "Big Game" prize, the unlikely duo must team up to escape their hunters. As anxious Pentagon officials observe the action via satellite feed, it is up to the President and his new side-kick to prove themselves and survive the most extraordinary 24 hours of their lives.

Did You Know?

Trivia

The adventures in the wilderness take place in Finnish Lapland, but the outdoor footage in the film, is actually from the Alps. In Writer and Director Jalmari Helander's opinion, the real Lapland locations did not suit his image of what the scenery should look like. See more »

Goofs

There is no reason for the oxygen masks to be deployed during the descent. Oxygen masks deploy automatically only in the event of a loss of cabin pressure, and there is nothing to suggest anything like that has happened. Passenger oxygen is only required if the cabin altitude rises above 14,000 feet. See more »

Quotes

Vice President: I've got one question for you, Fred, one question only. Can it get back to us?
Herbert: Can it get back to us? Well, Vice President, Morris is dead, Hazar is dead, all his men are dead...
[trips the Vice President, smashing his head into a sink and killing him]
Herbert: And you're dead. So, in answer to your question, getting back to anyone, I would say no, it's not getting back to anyone.

Fun Fun Fun!!

Samuel L Jackson is the disgruntled President of the United States who is the target of an attack that leaves him crash landed in the forest of Finland aided only by Oskari, a Finish boy trying to prove himself as a hunter and as a man. WHAT MORE CAN YOU WANT?!

This is the best camp action movie I have seen in a long time (and I'm counting The Expendables). It's so much fun to watch. Onni Tommila as Oskari is so brilliant and hilarious, and stands up no problem to Sam Jackson.

Definitely what you're looking for on a Friday night in with a buddy and a beer.
