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

There is no reason for the oxygen masks to be deployed during the descent. Oxygen masks deploy automatically only in the event of a loss of cabin pressure, and there is nothing to suggest anything like that has happened. Passenger oxygen is only required if the cabin altitude rises above 14,000 feet. See more »

A few hours ago I could order the greatest armed force on the planet to invade any country in the world and now I can't even order a pizza. And believe me, I could really use a pizza.

For the UK theatrical release, the distributor sought and was given advice by the BBFC on how to secure a 12A certificate. Following this advice, a single use of the word 'motherfucker' was partially obscured and the film was classified 12A. The home video release was uncut and received a 15 rating. See more »
I can't understand all the haters out there hating on this one. It brings the cinema back to life the way other gratuitous movies like Armageddon, Goonies and The Rock did. It's a mix of Spielberg and Roland Emmerich. It's big, it's fun, adventurous and endearing, total adventure escapism, the way good movies should be. The cinematography is beyond astounding, and 1/2 the acting is really good. But, 1/2 the acting is really, really bad unfortunately, especially Samuel Jackson and his entourage. I kind of feel bad for Samuel Jackson in a way. It's only been recently that I haven't wished for or expected him to say some pulp fiction gangster lines in every scene. Somehow he looks depressed in this movie. Maybe because he can't say some bad-ass gangster lines? I would kill to see a pulp fiction spin off of his character, maybe roaming the world like Cain from Kung-Fu and, like the A-Team, doing good things and saving people. Or, glorious abandon, his pulp fiction character meeting up with the A-Team? Only in my dreams.
