Harrison Ford as the President of the United States is such a perfect piece of casting that it's at once a fantasy and a joke: The joke is how perfect the fantasy is. [25 Jul 1997, p. 48]
Petersen ratchets the tension up to a level where the viewer is likely to forget the imbecilic plot contrivances that have gotten the situation to this point, and just enjoy the action and adventure.

A fairly competent recycling of familiar ingredients, given an additional interest because of Harrison Ford's personal appeal.
Viscerally juicy....The movie is effectively cast. [25 July 1997, p.D2]
