Trivia

When the US Secret Service wouldn't allow the filmmakers to land their UH-1 Huey they were using on the South Lawn, they used stock footage of the President's helicopter, Marine One, landing instead. See more »

Goofs

The helicopter that Bishop is flying in to the White House changes from a UH-1 Huey to the President's helicopter Marine One in the shot involving the north side of the White House, and then changes back to the UH-1 Huey when it lands on the south lawn. See more »

Do-it-yourself Mystery Science Theater 3000 kit.
14 May 1999 | by (Detroit) – See all my reviews

MST3K fodder. It's so bad it's actually worth seeing just for that reason. There are some hilarious things in it, such as the mysterious device the bad guy is seen working on for the whole movie, that turns out to be this tiny helicopter that flutters around carrying and firing a machine gun without so much as a wobble, but is brought down by a bag of balloons (the kind they release at political conventions). Many other wonderful touches of that sort. Stars Charlie Sheen. There's one scene where he spends five minutes recording a conversation, only to drop the microcassette in the Potomac River by accident. If they'd cast Emilio Estevez in the part that never would've happened.
