An old Harrison really kicks ass for the first time in a long time. Oldman is pretty good and delightfully violent and threatening, more than most villains these days. Good casting overall, except for the Air Force pilots. How come they are always good looking? They never have actors with zits or glasses for minor characters to play people who are often quite ugly. They’ve finally made a movie which showcases the real security measures taken to keep the president safe.

Die Hard on a plane. A lot of action cliches, but they work. Some really nice camera movements which you don’t find often in cheesy action movies. Some awful special effects, especially the plane crash at the end.
