  • 2 stars "I just laughed at the scenes that President Sawyer making a funny little movements like how he chewed the gum, when he'd kicked off goon's face holding his Jordans and the other one was when he is talking to Jenna and left him hanging. LOL. I just can't imagine a president with those funny scenarios. But I want that movie. Pertaining the sacrifices and all. hope that they are real. :)"
  • 1 star "down right garbage!"
  • 1 star "just awful....starts out like your typical clichéd action movie and proceeds to get worse. Action scenes make no sense, the plot falls apart as holes open up big enough to drive an armored limo through, which happens at one point. Save your time, watch Olympus Has Fallen which is at least somewhat believable and has better action scenes"
