The only thing I could have done without is long periods of shooting, exploding and pretty graphic violence, but certainly a nail biter from start to end. Somewhat predictable but that did not hurt. Loved Gerard Butler and Morgan Freeman!!!

Great movie from begining to end, great actors. Of course the critics will say it averages (B) movie.. But what the hell do they know, at least not all the time. Its a must see it your self in order to critize. Action pack, kinda upsetting to some but great ending, when most movies arent. Loved it..

Old-School, Gung-Ho Action

Anyone who appreciates solid, fast-paced action thrillers will love this film. The cast is fantastic and the plot relatively believable, with bits of dark humor to provide relief for the relentless action, which begins with an intense and clever attack scene which hits the audience like a roller coaster on the highest drop. This is the story of a hero's redemption and a country's satisfying revenge on terrorists who hope to take it down. Mike Banning, whose career as a Secret Service agent is nearly derailed by a tragic accident, is played by Gerard Butler in a memorable performance full of fierce, determined grit. He has the intensity and size to be believable in the role, with an air of intellligence that's often missing in many action stars. And with his charming grin and deep-voiced delivery of his lines and quips, we can't help but root for him to annihilate every bad guy in his way to rescuing the president and saving the country. Pure unadulteraded fun!

I loved this movie. If you like Action , a good story line,and the good in People you will love this movie. It was action packed rollar coaster ride. I have to say I would see this again and I usually do not say that about movies.. The thought is sobering in this day and times things like this do happen. I have to say the whole Audience cheered at on point but I don't want to give anything away. Go see it you won't be sorry.

This was an excellent movie. The action was great and there were even funny moments. The audience laughed, screamed, and cheered for the good guys. Well worth the price of admission. I may even see it again. Also, I counted four pieces of male eye candy. Yummy.
