Why It's Better Than Speed 2: Cruise Control
- Better and creative storyline.
- The film is like Die Hard on a plane.
- Good performances by Harrison Ford, Glenn Close, Gary Oldman, William H. Macy and the rest of the cast.
- Good suspenseful music composed by the late Jerry Goldsmith.
- Memorable quotes that are more likable. (eg. "Get off my plane!")
- A female Vice-President is interesting to see.
- An interesting surprise that one of the staff members is actually a hidden villain.
- When Air Force One crashes into the ocean, the effects look awful.
