“Air Force Two”
Director: Brian Trenchard-Smith
Starring: Mariel Hemingway, David Keith
The tradition of title trickery continues with a C-thriller hoping to mask itself as some sort of cousin to the Harrison Ford blockbuster, “Air Force One”. Fooled? Nah, didn’t think so.
Granted, it mightn’t have a link to the Harrison Ford movie (1997) – the title is bound to throw some people off, I just know – but that doesn’t mean the similarly titled “Air Force Two” isn’t still entertaining. It is, but only in that ‘I’d rather an ice-cream, but this tub of frozen soy yoghurt will do’ way.
Filmed in New Zealand (becoming quite a popular spot for filmmakers, isn’t it?), the thriller centres on a secret service agent (Mariel Hemingway) who must rescue the vice president (David Keith – probably one of the better B actors around) and his fellow survivors from deadly natives and shady pirates, when his plane crashes in hostile territory.
If you’re a fan of action movies, you won’t find it too hard to sit through. All others might wanna look elsewhere.
