Good action, plot, and characters. Battle in front of white house = disappointed, except for close up action. Who stands up on open ground in a fire fight? After those scenes the story kept me in my seat.

One of the best thrill-seeking, action pack, sit on the edge of your seat movies since Air Force One. It was a well spent $10.00. This is one I can watch repeatedly on cable or DVD.

I wanted to see this movie because I am a Morgan Freeman fan; but I must say the movie was actually pretty dog-gone good! It started a little slow and quickly picked up the pace - I really enjoyed Angela Bassett's role. This is one that will make it to my video library.

OK, I will start by saying this movie is loaded with bad language and extreme violence, but that is to be expected, it is Rated R. All that said, the action is nonstop, with a few twists here and there (one of them being rather predictable). Gerard Butler is excellent, doing his american accent to perfection LOL, and playing the rough and tough guy very well. Aaron Eckhart is also terrific, as is Morgan Freeman and others. The casting is successful. I went into the movie thinking ok, I am looking forward to action, but also believing there is no real way this could ever happen. Though some of it is unrealistic, you still can see how it is possible that our white house is more vulnerable than we think. That makes the movie more enjoyable, but opens up a different can of worms ;)

This was one of the most exciting filmas I have ever seen. The shock of seeing the White House under attack and watching the President and other high officials abused, and in some cases killed was extraordinary movie making.
