AIR FORCE ONE: 8.5

A good movie which should hold your interest through lots of action, heroics included. Once you get past the few unbelievables (that Air Force One could be taken over, that we have a president who possess the highest personal and political morals and ethics since St. Francis, and, that this president also has the courage, know-how and physical capabilities to do some hero stuff) you have an enjoyable movie. I know, I know, we've yet to see anything close to that on our election ballets, but how many action movies have believable heroes? This one just stands out more because of the great contrast with real life in this case. Expect lots of killing due to the terrorist story line, and hold down your popcorn during the handful of really corny Hollywood heartfelt lines.
