CIA analyst Jack Ryan must thwart the plans of a terrorist faction that threatens to induce a catastrophic conflict between the United States and Russia's newly elected president by detonating a nuclear weapon at a football game in Baltimore.
The President of the USA goes to Moscow and gives a stirring speech outlining the USA's new "Zero-tolerance" policy with respect to terrorism. On the flight home, terrorists take over Air Force One (the President's official plane) and take the passengers (including his wife and daughter) hostage. The terrorists plan to execute one hostage every half-hour unless/until their demands are met. However, the President is a former Medal of Honor winner, so the terrorists may be in for a surprise...

The cable really was trailed behind the MC-130, but its connection to the 747 was a special effect. See more »
None of the planes used as the real Air Force One have an escape pod. President Bill Clinton is said to have remarked on this detail half-jokingly after seeing the film at a White House screening. However, this obviously was a case of artistic license since the pod was used by the filmmakers to make a key plot twist. See more »

What a movie! TROMA eat your heart out! Multi-million budget for a B class Under Siege rip-off(which was a B-movie itself). This is one of the worst movies so far, among there with Battlefield Earth and Star Wars Episode 1. UNBELIEVABLY bad! Wooden Ford, monstrous Russians, killing in the name of MOTHER-RUSSIA, battle with MIGs - that a movie to watch! The best part is where Russians are singing INTERNATIONAL at jail and everyone in White House, on board of hijacked plane hears them through intercom.The hole thing looks and feel like a cold war movie made in 70's. SUMMARY: Either 1 or 10(if you like a good kitsch film).
