The Air Force Two pilot tells the Vice President that he will get the plane to "30,000 feet in 45 seconds". That would be an ascent rate of 40,000 feet per minute, (455 MPH vertically). That's at least 10 times what the plane can do under ideal conditions when completely empty. See more »

I wasn't that eager to watch this movie, because I had seen some clips on TV shows reviewing it, and read reviews in newspapers...and none of them were very positive.
But on a rainy Sunday night, nothing else to do...i thought to myself...why not !? Have an open mind and go and see it.
And i must say I was pleasantly surprised !!! YES every normal thinking adult must know that the things you see in this movie are outrageous and simply couldn't ever happen that way. But so is most of what happens in any Bond movie ! So just forget about that part of it all...and decide if the movie is entertaining, and i thought it was !
Channing Tatum, James Woods, Maggie Gyllenhaal and little Joey King did really good work ! The only negative for me in this movie was Jamie Foxx, and I don't even know what it was that bothered me about him in this movie, but I just didn't think he was the best choice for that part !
