Not only is this movie poorly done but it was not even enjoyable. Emmerich has really defined the meaning of 'implausible' and ludicrous. There are numerous obvious fallacies in the presentation of the security aspects of the film and the plot meanders. The movie seems to suffer from a identify crises, serious political thriller vs comedic quips. And it appears to be nothing more than a vehicle for Channing to perform impossible heroic stunts. I'm surprised Channing would include himself as a producer on this boring piece, very little different from Olympus Has Fallen of a couple months back. And it is an obvious promotion for the Obama administration-- you know Obama good and everyone opposed to him is bad.
