Big Game (12A)

Action, Adventure

A young teenager camping in the woods helps rescue the President of the United States when Air Force One is shot down near his campsite.

The critical consensus

Destined to be a big drinking game — take a sip when Broadbent bites his sandwich — but little else, this feels like a major missed opportunity.

Drags in places and not always certain of its tone but with a sprinkling of eye-bulging visuals that wink to Spielberg’s heyday. Give it a shot.

A minor pleasure for undemanding B movie fans.

Tongue-in-cheek humour combined with well-staged stunts.

‘President’ Samuel L Jackson falls victim to a touch of Airport 1975 when his plane is shot down in the wilds of Europe.
