    All I can say is beware this is a flipper with no extras. You have to flip the film over to the other side half way through. Bad. I must say the soundtrack is quite impressive though.

    Ok, this is the review of the REMASTERED EDITION which is the only region 2 version u can get now.

    This new edition is MUCH better than the site reviewed version.
    Here are the extra features supplied:

    Audio Commentry by The Director
    Triva Subtitles (Displays Interesting general facts)
    Featurette
    Scene Selection
    Multi Languages

    The Movie itself is excellent if you like action (lotsa gunz!) and has a very good pace. Both Gary Oldman and Harrison Ford give excellent performances, and are perfect for the part.

    The Video is crystal clear, but on certain scenes there is a slight fuzzyness around the blues, blacks and greys.

    The Audio is excellent, since it has been remastered much better than the original R2 edition. The guns firing are clear and very base pulsing.

    Air Force One doesn`t have as many features as most other DVD`s but the ones it does have are excellent.

    Overall, Air Force One is a brilliant DVD with a great picture and audio. Harrison Ford fans will be pleased!
