This plot is a ridiculous left wing psycho fantasy. Understand that military contractors are completely responsible for all the violence in the world and aided by the Speaker of the House, and will start a nuclear war to (somehow) maximize profits. Throw in the usual rednecks as bad guys .Totally ruined a below average action movie. The acting is OK as far as the plot will let pretty decent performers utter their preposterous lines with a straight face. Spoiler alert- (if that is possible with this movie) If you can get past the blatant propaganda you are still faced with characters such as the pilots who would do things such disobey orders and for all they knew allow a nuclear strike on Iran, killing millions of children to save one child. This is simply Hollywood at its elitist fantasy world worst and the scarier part that they believe-possibly accurately - the viewer is really that dumb.
