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
The adventures in the wilderness take place in Finnish Lapland, but the outdoor footage in the film, is actually from the Alps. In director Jalmari Helander's opinion, the real Lapland locations did not suit his image of what the scenery should look like. See more »
Lapland does have mountains and 1000km up north from Heslingfors, Pallas-Ounastunturi Nationalpark.
Need to check the false comments. See more »
Is this what passes for a decent film these days? Big Game is the worst movie experience i've had for quite some time. it starts off well but dive bombs after about 10 minutes. ( and its only 90 minutes long ) its a ludicrous story, barely enjoyable and everything is based on pure coincidence and circumstance. Jackson is terrible as the President also. Everything is forgettable about this movie. The kid was the best person in this film and he needs a better platform than Big Game. AWFUL!! its very reminiscent of 1980's movies, but fails to emulate them completely. just go and buy Stallone's Cliffhanger Instead. Or go and watch Rare Exports.
