Didn't go to this movie with high expectations and boy was I surprised. This movie had just the right amount of action and semi-realism. Gerard Butler is the MAN! The cast and storyline meshed together so well I'd definitely go see it again. Most of us have seen movies with a 'this is how the world ends' or 'how many different ways we can imaginatively destroy major cities.' This one was WOW! Prepare to be shocked!

Applause worthy movie. Evokes passion for my country. Just a well done action movie with a good plot, good acting, and very good directing. Suspenseful, and Dramatic.

Great movie! Exciting from start to finish. Even my girlfriend who hates it when I pick movies, go figure, said she was on the edge of her seat from start to finish. So its a definite must see! A lot better than I expected, a very pleasant surprise for the both of us!

Little too close to home feeling, with current events in the Koreas, but Gerard Butler a real bad-a$$ taking on all the bad guys single-handedly, Die-Hard style. Too many dead bodies, and lots of very graphic violence, blood spurting knife punches and gunshots close-up. A little excessive and continuous, a bit much for even for those of us typically ok with a little gratuitous violence to make sure the bad guys get hated, and the good guys are justified in the same violence back. More-or-less happy ending, which I like to see, and some pretty awesome graphics work depicting a decapitated Washington Monument, and a White House facsimile in ruins.

This movie was one of the best I've seen this year. I might have to see it again to understand the first part...not too sure about the accident. But overall a head scratcher, eye opener and the plot was well written. My husband kept saying it reminded him of a Die Hard movie. I don't know if that is right or wrong to say about this movie..all I know is I enjoyed it to the very end!!
