Number of Times Seen – 1 (2 Jul 2013)
Brief Synopsis – A former secret service agent must save the President and his staff when terrorists take over the White House
My Take on it – Throughout the 2 hours that my wife and I were watching this movie, we kept asking each other when will John McClane show up and make this movie better.
Ever since Die Hard (1988) made the one man against many genre extremely popular, many studio have tried (unsuccessfully) to copy that idea. This movie is a definitely in that genre, but relies too much on lots of shooting, lots of blood and lots of swearing to make up for the fact that the plot isn’t so complicated and/or interesting.
This movie was entertaining, but I woulda been happier watching Die Hard (1988) instead.
Bottom Line – A bad “re-make” of Die Hard (1988). Lots of dead bodies and action. Not gonna win many awards but entertaining none the less.
Rating – BAFTA Worthy
