The White House Tour Guide played by Nicholas Wright briefly shows the group the White House's film room, and mentions that they are in the part that was blown up in Independence Day. Roland Emmerich, this film's director, also directed Independence Day (1996), and attended the screening of that film at the White House in that very film room when Bill Clinton was President. Wright would later play Floyd Rosenburg in Independence Day: Resurgence (2016), just three years later. See more »
When Marine One does "the thing" at the beginning of the film, and does a fly-by of the Lincoln Memorial, a profile of Abraham Lincoln's statue is shown with the helicopters flying past in the background. This is impossible as that wall is solid, and bears the Gettysburg address. See more »
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.
