Samuel L. Jackson,
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.Written by
Now I rather enjoyed this... OK, so it isn't going to trouble an Academy jury anywhere, but it is a good end-to-end action movie with bows and arrows - but not a sign of Robin Hood! Samuel L. Jackson is the President onboard Air Force One when it is attacked by a missile. He is bundled into his escape pod and lands in the midst of what turns out to be a Finnish forest. Meantime a local young lad is being trained by his father to be a hunter and so when he stumbles upon, and releases the President, they - together - have to try and find their way to a phone. Of course it isn't that simple - the President is being hunted; rather preposterously - like big game - by a Russian millionaire lunatic who is aided by a disaffected Secret Service agent who set the whole thing up in the first place (not a spoiler - we discover that very, very early on). The two now have to stay one step ahead of their pursuers with the help of the aforementioned bow and arrow, a shoe and an old fridge complete with some frozen venison. It's daft, with some really naff CGI - but Onni Tommila ("Oskari") the young lad and SLJ gel well together, the latter is on good form with some quite witty one-liners and joyous facial expressions as I think even he realises just how silly this all is... Great fun, though - and I'd recommend if you've got ninety minutes to spare, and no particularly high expectations...
