I have to admit I bought this movie just because I was once in love with the stunningly beautiful Mariel Hemingway. Now 20 years later, she still looks pretty good and has obviously gotten into doing B-action flicks. The story is simple - Air force two, with the vice President on board, crashes on a tropical island. It's now up to the VP's bodyguard (Hemingway) to rescue him. But what they don't know is that the island is a training camp for a group of terrorists. The action scenes are not great, but acceptable for a low budget movie. The same goes for the acting. But overall a nice b-action movie, with the unusual approach of having a female (lesbian) heroine.

"In Her Line of Fire" (also known as "Air Force Two") is benefited from the strong performances from the leads, especially Mariel Hemingway as touch and no-nonsense Secret Service agent who has to protect the Vice President of the United States (David Keith) from the mercenaries when their airplane went down. David Millburn is Armstrong, psycho leader of the military training camp.

The film's contrived story doesn't bother us much because actions start almost immediately after the plane crush. Not many people, even the guerrillas in the jungle, would shoot an unarmed person as the film depicts, but anyway the film is only trying to do what it is supposed to do.

The actions of the film are not bad, just OK with several familiar set-pieces. At first sight the actions of the film look like those made in the 80s, like Stallone's "Cobra" or Schwartzenegger's "Commando," but they are done with much less ammunition or humor here. Moreover, explosions are substituted by special effects, which most action film fans would find disappointing.

The film's strength is Mariel Hemingway's strong acting. Her relation with a surviving journalist played by Jill Bennett is among the most interesting aspects of the film because of the suggested lesbian theme, but the film does not seem to develop the intriguing subplot much. (Or I may have missed the point.) Anyway, otherwise this is a typical B action film with a standard action plot that is made for action film fans.

"In Her Line of Fire" is not a terrible film as you might believe, thanks to the presence of Mariel Hemingway and her character. Still it is also true that she is the only reason I give three stars which this film itself may not deserve.

Don't expect too much high quality anything with this film and you should enjoy the action.

Mariel Hemingway could still turn heads and interrupt conversations just by walking in the room and Jill Bennett would get more than her wanted fair share of female attention!

I reckon that it was the hope of the cast and crew that their audience would leave all sense of rationality and believability behind when they pushed the 'play' button on their DVD players. I wasn't expecting Academy Award performances and so found myself pleased with my purchase and a welcome addition to my 'collection'.

One question I found myself asking throughout the film... Why was Jill Bennett wearing a nice bright 'shoot-me-if-you-can' RED shirt when all the other characters were suitably attired in camouflage gear?!? Again, leave your sense of rationality behind.

Okay - You've got the Vice Presidential plane (with David Keith aboard) traveling over the Pacific Ocean without Naval escort fighters, in a tropical storm that should have been predicted and avoided. The storm puts the plane down near an unknown island (Barago!). No emergency call, no secondary channel, no emergency transponder beeping after the plane goes down. And last but not least, only one Secret Service Agent onboard (Mariel Hemingway). The President orders a search for the "Second most powerful man in the World" Duh.... The President comes across as a real low I.Q. doofus. The Naval Admiral is also an idiot.

After some "A-Team type" gun battles, the Guerillas take the VP hostage for a large ransom (what else?). Mariel takes only a 9mm subgun, instead of an assault rifle, from the scumbags. The Guerilla leader is especially obnoxious in the acting department. I mean, low-down, amateur, stinking bad acting. Hemingway and Keith must have taken the lead from the extras; because they were just as bad. You'll wonder why the person who wrote the dialogue wasn't left on the island; where everything else about this movie should have been left. Oh, and it seemed like they hired some pretty bad Samoan or Hawaiian actors for this stinker. They grunt a lot.

If you can stand just killing time and watching a [horrible] movie, then go ahead. Heck, you can go to the "John" a few times, go out for some pizza, and even walk your dog. You won't miss anything. When jobs in Hollywood are sparse, I guess you take anything yo can get (Mariel and David did) and hope that at least the director can save the script (he didn't.) Absolutely stunk !

I have always loved the tough girl, kick guys butts movies. This one did not disappoint. I loved the filming location. The actors seemed to really match up well. I was kind of surprised at the end. I will not spoil it for anyone. Watch it for yourself.
