Throughout the first scenes in the movie before the action begins, Cale is shown wearing a suit and tie. However, in each scene, the tightness of the tie around his neck varies. Significantly noticeable prior to entering the interview room (loose and lowered from the neck), during the interview (tight to his neck), and the immediate scene leaving the interview room when his daughter asks if he got the job (loose).

Yet again, Channing Tatum proves he is an actor of very limited talent. But perhaps the weakest aspect of this weak movie is its script. The dialog - particularly between Tatum's character and the President - is just downright embarrassing. Was this written by a school-kid? If this was the 1940s 0r 50s, this juvenile script would have been thrown in the trash. Even the ever-reliable James Woods appears out-of-sorts in this junk. Richard Jenkins works with what little he is given but his skill as an actor is evident. And the young girl who plays Tatum's daughter shows her potential. In fact, she displays more acting range than her father.Go watch OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN instead. It is no classic by a long shot, but more entertaining than this effort.
