One of the dumbest inane movies I've ever seen. After 10 minutes I had to turn it off it was so bad. Not recommended.

A lot of action and violence, for sure, but lacking in script and logic and story content. Unlike the other comments, I much preferred White House Down. A much better story and action thriller.

One of the best action movies I've ever seen, way better than "White House Down"

This movie is superior to "White House Down"; but, strikingly similar. Gerard Butler is more believable and grittier than Channing Tatum as the hero and the circumstances are more realistic. Characters motivations are questionable: why aren't the Seals in their helicopters called off when admin is warned about the artillery in the hands of the terrorists? - does the director merely want to create more bloodshed and explosions? The movie is brutally violent. The villains are utterly ruthless and the hero is savage in his own attacks. The blood and bodies everywhere and a number of cold-blooded executions made this audience member feel no sympathy for the enemies.

Probably the best action film of the last five years, it had awesome action scenes and reminded me of the original die hard. The lead actor is the best action star as of now! If you don't like violence get movies from disney!

This movie will most certainly not stand the test of time. Want an action movie? See Skyfall. Want a better movie? Watch Invictus.

The utterly preposterous plot elements keep piling up in service to keeping the fantasy going (that of there's only that one guy who can save us all). It would have been okay as mindless if violent entertainment, but some of these stupid plot elements took a lot to swallow, even if all you wanted to do at that particular time was to watch some move. When putting a hold on this dvd, I was swayed by the big names on the cover, but I guess big names is no guarantee of good writing.

Inane plot everyone in the movie other than the one "Hero" (who though and American speaks with and English accent) is depicted as a spineless idiot The President ,The Military Chief of Staff and the Secretary of Defense all give up the codes to blow up are entire nuclear arsenal. The United States is not totally destroyed only because the hero aborts the program at the last second but the President stays in office and is depicted as a hero despite almost killing everyone in the United States

Mike Banning (walking out of the White House, ravaged by the defeated warmonger Kang and his terrorists, with The President): "Sorry about the house, sir." President Benjamin Asher: "It's okay. I believe it's insured."
