How can you take a decent enough action flick and ruin it, just follow White House Down.
I understand they want to make a flick that represents today's political situation and push a liberal agenda of how everyone want's to kill him because he's black.
I can look past that blatant in your face radical left agenda. I just can't get past how the plot is so bad. I can't get past how the scenes are so one sided. One guy takes out 20 better trained soldiers. It's just bad. Period. Better off watching Band of Brothers, at least you'll get some feeling of reality and sacrifice.
