5. February 16, 2010 - Air Force One (1997)

Harrison Ford has shown that he can play a space pirate, an ass-kicking archeology professor, and now a seriously bad-ass President of the United States. When radical Soviet nationalists take over his airplane with his family and senior staff aboard, President Harrison doesn't run or panic - he eludes his own Secret Service trying to get him to safety and proceeds to sabotage the terrorists while hiding in the baggage compartment of the plane. Not as perfect as President Bartlett (The West Wing), not as publically heroic as President Whitmore (Independence Day), but President Harrison is up there with fictional American Presidents. Hell, I'd vote for Han Solo any day!
My Netflix rating: 4 stars
