Terrible...and I absolutely LOVED IT!
5 May 2012 | by derlowenSee all my reviews

Hey, come on. You rent a movie about Air Force One on a collision course with another plane and you gotta already know what you're getting into. That said, I thoroughly enjoyed this movie and think it will one day reach cult status, especially since the only true star in it is "Carl Winslow" (Reginald VelJohnson) of Family Matters. His appearance alone makes it worth a watch.

Where do I start? The movie starts off slow at first and them BAM! You find yourself on a careening roller coaster of delightful entertainment implausibility. The acting, dialogue and scenarios keep a coming fast and furious, with each scene exponentially worse than the last, and I mean in a good way. I actually found myself seriously contemplating what I might do if faced with retrieving a bag containing life saving medication for a woman having a grand-mall seizure, if it meant snatching that bag from sealing a hole in the plane made by one of Air Force One's Sidewinder missiles! Admit it, you can't find that kind of mind numbing creativity in just any old movie. This one is special.

Or how about the crazy passenger who assaults the male flight attendant, gets knocked out by another passenger with a book only to awaken later and gleefully jump out of a SECOND HOLE in the top of the plane, made by scrapping the underside of Air Force One in a near miss. Can you beat that level of creative absurdity, I ask you? Simply wonderful and stupid fun. At least this movie never tries to be what it isn't, and that should be appreciated BEFORE WATCHING to get maximum enjoyment.

I loved it and will haul it out from time to time just to remind me of what makes a bad movie such a guilty pleasure. It reminds me of all those great, goofy 80's movies that were just so craftily stupid they were big, dumb fun. Watch it and check your brain at the door, you'll have a good time, I promise.
