This movie was good, but it had two major disappointments to it. This was more of a comedy movie than it was an action movie. It made the Secret Service and the White House defenses appear to be extremely weak.
Humor in movies is fine, but too much of it in an action movie takes away from the focus of the choreography of each of the sequences. It also did not make sense to have so much humor in a time when the White House is being taken over and countless people are being killed.
The Secret Service were taken down so incredibly quick, and it was annoying. They were portrayed as if the Navy SEALS went up against a group of teenagers. They were literally annihilated in no time at all. It was pathetic.
Other than those two things, the movie was fine. The story had a nice twist to it in regards to who was responsible for organizing the attack on the White House. It was completely unexpected.
