Air Force One

Corazon Aquino and/or especially Ferdinand Marcos were the names on my mind for this week's TCP theme Presidents or their families. It was a just a fancy. I attempted a superficial search but I was 95% sure there aren't films about these Philippine presidents. At least none that I know of. So Air Force One it is.

Parts in the film that I could not forget are those of the president insisting his family and an injured staff member, not him, be safely ushered into the rescue jet first, the first daughter dangling mid-air between the two airborne planes screaming, Daddy! and the way the president saluted his men back after he and his family were rescued. In case you're wondering -- I'm twirling Recency Effects theory in my mind :-)

Robert Lynch provides the summary:
"A thriller about a steadfast U.S. President (Harrison Ford) who has just told the world he will not negotiate with terrorists. Russian neo-nationalists have hijacked Air Force One and the President is faced with a nearly impossible decision: give in to terrorist demands or sacrifice not only the country's dignity, but the lives of his wife and daughter
