When Air Force One is shot down by terrorists leaving the President stranded in the wilderness, there is only one person around who can save him – a 13-year old boy called Oskari (Onni Tommila) who, in the forest on a hunting mission to prove his maturity to his kinsfolk, 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.
So, like I said, it sounds like a great idea, but… it looks exceptionally dull… except unless you’re a child.
Big Game also stars Ray Stevenson, Jim Broadbent, Ted Levine, Felicity Huffman and Victor Garber, and is released in the UK on May 8th.
