A '90s action classic is among the movies on TV tonight
An immensely watchable movie.
Staying in to hide from the rain?
May we suggest a movie?
However, if you need more options, here are the movies on TV tonight.
Air Force One - Film4 - 9pm
In our pick for tonight, terrorists (led by Gary Oldman) hijack Air Force One with the US President (Harrison Ford) and his family on board.
While the Vice President (Glenn Close) negotiates from Washington DC, the President, who is a Vietnam veteran, fights to rescue the hostages on board.
Directed by the late and great Wolfgang Petersen (Das Boot, In the Line of Fire), Air Force One is essentially Die Hard if it was set on a plane and John McClane was the president.
It's also pretty quotable - "Get off my plane!" - and the supporting cast, including Dean Stockwell and William H. Macy, is solid.
