Movie Reviews

A wealth of unique insider perspectives
Midwest Book Review | Oregon, WI USA | 03/13/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Air Force One isn't one particular aircraft. It is the designation given to what ever particular aircraft the President of the United States happens to be flying in at the time. Charlton Heston lends his considerable narrative talents in Air Force One: The Planes & The Presidents - Flight II, a new, 90 minute, Hi Fi Stereo, DVD release from MPI Home Video. Viewers are treated to a unique, in-depth survey of the history and evolution of presidential flight from the Franklin Roosevelt administration through the presidency of George Bush. Here is a wealth of unique insider perspectives of events and activities ranging from the historically important to the amusingly trivial. Our understanding is further enhanced with enlightening and informative interviews with former presidents, pilots, crew, and administration officials. Also featured is an examination of the varying types of planes that have had the honor of being dubbed "Air Force One" throughout the years. Air Force One: The Planes & The Presidents - Flight II is a superb addition to any school or community library video/DVD American History or Political Science/Presidential Studies collection."

"I really could not find any flaw in the movie, the only thing is that they briefly show the presidential quarters! Otherwise, this is a wonderful collection of the shots about the Flying White House! Get the movie! It is the worth of price and you will enjoy watching it! The movie is particularly interesting for foreigners! Americans may and can see the plane individually, they have this chance!"
Good, but slightly dated

"This video is a good look at what Air Force One is all about. It is a little dated in some areas, but the information is still very interesting."
The best documentary about Air Force One.

"I had first seen this on the History Channel and when I found out it was coming on video, I got it immediately. It was a very impressing film. I was fascinated to learn about the history of Air Force One and how presidential travel by air was formed. I was also surprised that they had interviews with former presidents and Air Force One crewmembers which I enjoyed. I think that this a really great film and I think it's worth watching."
