B-Movie Ad Campaign Should Not Keep You Away From A Good Movie!
Pay attention to the first fifteen minutes of this film, because that is about the only character development you will see for the good guys. After that it is just going to be a non-stop action film ride. You have seen elements of this film if you have seen Harrison Ford in Air Force One, Bruce Willis in any Die Hard Film, or Morgan Freeman in any film where he plays POTUS. Let yourself get past the ease of the Spectre's incursion (USAF A-C130 ) and the waves Secret Service Agents that flow out the doors of the White House to get mowed down by .50 Cal gunners. There does not appear to have been any cooperation from the DoD, because the Soldiers, SEALs, and HRT guys are all portrayed as extras / fodder; however, the 4-Star General with the bad perm is spot on for the current crop of military decision makers. The cast all works well, and reflects the way we staff our branches of government.
