8. Air Force One
“GET OFF MY PLANE!” Okay, so Air Force One is a completely over-the-top, bordering on cheesy action flick, but Harrison Ford’s performance as the President of the Untied States, who’s also pretty good at fighting and killing terrorists himself, is what grounds the film. Ford throughout Air Force One is the epitome of growling, hard-nosed toughness, and even though the movie was released in 1997, some fourteen years after Return of the Jedi, Ford still showed audiences that he had what it takes to be a great action star.
