When Air Force Once is shot down over Finland, the President (Jackson) escapes but finds that his only ally is a 13-year-old Finnish boy (Tommila) on a solo hunting trip. Cheerfully derivative action flick with Jackson well-cast as POTUS, while Tommila is refreshingly unpredictable. A pleasurable, undemanding B movie.
