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.

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 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!!

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.

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.
