Storyline

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.

But the acting was not B-class!
29 March 2015 | by cartman_okSee all my reviews

First, let's admit it that this is an adventure movie for boys - and their fathers as well. A story, a fairy tale, with all possible clichés of the genre. This has been covered by other reviewers, no need to add anything.

However, I must thank all the actors. This was a B-class movie with a Z-class budget - with naive and primitive screen writing. Still the actors managed to honor their profession and do a very good job. I have seen many "better" movies with much worse acting. The hero, the Finnish boy, was of course sympathetic as child actors often are. But the biggest thanks goes to Samuel L. Jackson, he really saved the day. Not a blockbuster role, not an Oscar winning role, but absolutely professional performance with deliberate low-key twist. (As long as we forget those awful last lines he had to act-out). To me, this is a Samuel L. Jackson movie.
