Written and directed by Finish born Jalmari Helander (Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale), he brings us a healthy budget B-movie that is perfect for a Saturday popcorn fuelled night.
So sit back and enjoy the adventure.
US President William Alan Moore (Samuel L. Jackson, Avengers: Age of Ultron) is down in the political points, but he is the most powerful man on the planet, and Air Force 1 proves it, it’s full of high tech gadgetry and surrounded by fighter jets, so what could possibly go wrong?
Mean while far below the presidential problems, thirteen year old Oskari (Onni Tommila, Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale) is at the age when you have to go out into the wilderness and prove to the village people that you can be called a man. The pressure is on his shoulders, it is hard to follow in your father’s illustrious footsteps, as you head into the forested mountains of Finland.
What price would you put on a president’s head to achieve your goal and how would you go about it. May be the most trusted man, the one that took a bullet for the president, Morris (Ray Stevenson, Divergent). The outcome is that Air Force 1 is attacked and the president is evacuated and his pod lands in the forests of Finland near the camp of Oskari.
Can these two escape the best big game hunter ever and can the young man prove himself to his doubting father?
