Excerpt: I don't know if it can get any better in this genre! Perhaps more 3D, HD, a bigger screen, a higher volume. I think you'd need one of those fully insulated basements to play the film at maximum specifications. Showing the vulnerabilities and the strengths in defenses of such a potential attack against the President of the USA himself and his co-workers. They are the only ones in the bunker with the secret codes.
Excerpt: Van begin tot eind trekt de film je naar binnen. Gedurende de film vele momenten met hartkloppingen gezeten door de actie en het verhaal, maar ook dat ik mij bedacht dat het scenario op een dag nog weleens bewaarheid kon worden. Geheel onmogelijk is het niet... Het is 1 van de beste actiefilms die ik ooit heb gezien (het eind is wat afgeraffeld (laatste 5 minuten) maar dat mag de pret niet drukken.
Excerpt: In my opinion this is one heck of a good movie. It looks fantastic & the sound track gave my sound system one heck of a work out. This is an action packed, on the edge of your seat, brutal & believable movie. Terrorism & the people who put it into motion are real & always thinking of new ways to bring down this country. This film reminds me so much of 911. I've read a lot of bad reviews on here about this movie & I can't understand it. To each his own I guess.
Excerpt: Bought this after seeing a preview on Fios. Glad I did. It was significantly better than reviewers said when it was in theaters and even though the users generally say it's ok or pretty good, I think it's better than that just for the story and action alone. Watched it on my 1080i projector and while the CGI might not have been the best, it was passable especially if you're paying attention to the action and not looking for flaws in the video.
Conclusion: Personally I think this is one of the most badass action movies since the days of die hard and under siege, this movie is so oldschool in its execution it's a fan boys dream, this movie basically is under siege 3 the only thing missing is Steven Seagal, it's a straight forward story about a gang of terrorists taking over one of the most secure location on earth the white house and one man has to stop them, Gerard Butler is awesome as the lead, great actor, he is a one...
Conclusion: What a fantastic film. A cross between Under Siege and Die Hard. Great performances from all. A great set design of the White House and exterior. Very action packed as you would expect from a film like this especially the sequence of the White House being infiltrated about 15-20 mins long and very clever. Good fight scenes. A must buy for any action fan.
