The Black Hawk helicopters transporting Special Forces operators to the White House are MH-60 Direct Action Penetrator variants flown by the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment. However, these helicopters are equipped to be gunships, and would not be carrying troops into action.
The Black Hawks in the film also have AIM-9 Sidewinder missiles fitted to them; these would not be seen on these helicopters in real life, and the helicopters also appear to have an Air Force Strategic Air Command emblem at the front, and a white star at the rear of the fuselage. These are incorrect, and in the case of the star, fictional markings that would not be seen on 160th SOAR helicopters. See more »

The movie was so sickeningly political that I couldn't even settle down and pay attention to the plot. Let's take a skinny dark skinned president with a perfectly idealistic and altruistic persona and juxtapose him to a right wing extremist speaker of the house, utterly void of decency, willing to hire right wing extremist white supremisist thugs, kill all who oppose his warmongering agenda and destroy national landmarks in the process, all without a shred of honesty. Could it be any more blatant? Who paid for this flop? I certainly didn't. I saw it at a friend's house, who had rented it with a promotional code at Red box. Don't waste your time and listen to this very extreme political drivel. Is it possible that both sides of the aisle have valid points? That members of both parties actually desire peace and good will? Of course not! The right is just plain wrong and evil. Now you know the whole story line. Spoiler!
