Air Force One Down (2024, D: Bamford) -- S: Katherine McNamara, Ian Bohen, Anthony Michael Hall




In Select Theatres February 9, 2024 and Available to Buy On Digital February 13, 2024 DIRECTED BY: James Bamford WRITTEN BY: Steven Paul PRODUCED BY: Steven Paul EXECUTIVE PRODUCED BY: Scott Karol

About Air Force One Down: On her first assignment aboard Air Force One, a rookie Secret Service agent faces the ultimate test when terrorists hijack the plane, intent on derailing a pivotal energy deal. With the President's life on the line and a global crisis at stake, her bravery and skills are pushed to the limit in a relentless battle that could change the course of history.




McNamara is most famous for Arrow. The director of this movie was one of Arrow's directors. She was also in Walker Independence last year. Bohen was on Yellowstone.

This was filmed a year ago.

On the surface, this does look like a rip-off of Air Force One.

Certainly does, at least in part. Iím guessing:

1. The plane crashes (but more likely lands, to save on FX) within the first 20 minutes in some Eastern European hellhole.
2. The film was entirely shot in some Eastern European hellhole.
3. Scenes of the plane flying are reused from another movie (I was thinking BIG GAME, but that filmís flying scenes were mostly daytime, as I recall)
4. Most of the action takes place in that grungy warehouse or abandoned factory or whatever it is, because budget.
5. Anthony Michael Hall is actually a bad guy.

Damnit. I was hoping this was going to be a comedy directed by Maria Bamford.

I'm glad McNamara has made the leap to feature films.

Apparently this is in theaters today. Where? I have no idea. Fandango has none listed near me. It’s on VOD next week.

It was a fun way to kill 90 minutes. John Wick has some competition.

This is an example of a “mockbuster,” those cheap C-grade movies that are by intention titled confusingly close to a major film or franchise, or two of them in this case.

I never watched Arrow, but have seen McNamara in a couple Hallmark movies. I’d watch this on a streaming service I was already paying for.
