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.

I read bad reviews of this movie but thought it had a good cast and gave it a shot. Movie is a little farfetched but still entertaining. It is quite violent but not as graphic as movies tend to be nowadays. It's not the worst way to spend a couple of hours but it really was only so-so.

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.

This was a very well made, action, suspense filled movie. It had a great cast and the scripot was reality based. Government secrets were never revealed however the fictional depiction was very convincing and food for the imagination. This is a very good film worthy of a must see again on the big screen.

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 ;)
