Not as bad as most critics said but not as good as it might have been. A good (if pretty violent) two hours of action entertainment.

Best movie we've seen in years!!! Gerard Butler did a stunning performance... and the movie was edge of the seat great all the way through!! I would highly recommend it to any adult!! Lots of killing scenes, but not the ugly grizzly stuff of some horror pics... pretty much what our military does for a living! GREAT MUST SEE!!! Not recommended for kids... I would say 15 and older, especially if they are interested in current affairs in the world today! ONE MORE POSITIVE: Hollywood DID NOT use this movie to promote it's POLITICAL FLAVOR!! So everyone can enjoy this movie!!

If you approach this movie as a "Die Hard" movie, you're going to love it. Great action, great characters, and great action. And really really good action. The professional critics reviews I read were all caught up in the politics of the movie, and I honestly don't understand why. Give the analytical portion of your brain the night off, and enjoy having this movie boost your testosterone level.

Blah! There's nothing in this movie that we haven't seen before! I say wait for it do come out on dvd, which will probably be in two weeks...

A lot of recent action movies fail to set up an emotional background, which this movie does right off the bat. However, it's a shaky one at best. It's then followed by a far fetched and ridiculous, yet entertaining story line. I must say the crisis room acting was absolutely terrible! I'm kind of sad they pulled Morgan Freeman into this movie.
