Lot's of shoot 'em up and one liners! Worth taking the 132 minutes to watch it.

An okay way to pass a few hours. Some aspects really pushed the boundaries of credibility (really? the press would actually jeopardize a hostage's safety by repeatedly announcing her name?). After watching, you probably won't remember the plot but that's par for an action movie.

A good action movie to just enjoy. Favorite part was the front lawn. Who wouldn't want to try it?

A fun movie to turn off your brain to. Don't take it seriously, just sit back and enjoy and you'll have plenty of fun.

One of the best movies I've watched. Suspense, Heart-stopping, shocking, dangerous and a fun ride. The best adventure anyone can take. This movie is worth watching.

Don't waste your time on this turkey. Olympus Has Fallen is the same thing done reasonably well. The first half seemed OK for action fare and the cast is decent. And then it gets worse and worse, 2+2=5 stupid. I call it a new low for Roland Emerich, and that's not easy. Special points for worst handling of a child hero character.

Not great but entertaining. Not one to stick in your mind. When it's over, it's over.
