Capitol Policeman John Cale has just been denied his dream job with the Secret Service of protecting President James Sawyer. Not wanting to let down his little girl with the news, he takes her on a tour of the White House, when the complex is overtaken by a heavily armed paramilitary group. Now, with the nation's government falling into chaos and time running out, it's up to Cale to save the president, his daughter, and the country.Written by
Throughout the first scenes in the movie before the action begins, Cale is shown wearing a suit and tie. However, in each scene, the tightness of the tie around his neck varies. Significantly noticeable prior to entering the interview room (loose and lowered from the neck), during the interview (tight to his neck), and the immediate scene leaving the interview room when his daughter asks if he got the job (loose).

I think that there are a host of folk out there who have nothing better to do than write ridiculous reviews. Here we have a whole host of them. Of course the whole of the scenario is far fetched and as likely to happen as finding life on mars, but so what. If they had taken time to implant more character development, and they had as much as they needed, then people would have said it was too slow and not enough action. If they had put in more story line, then they would have said it was too "talky". There's no winning with some people. I knew that it was primarily an action flick, so I looked for nothing more, and was gratified at what took place. The special effects were great, though admittedly they did make the whole secret service, military et al look a little weak, but there you have it. I believe most people will enjoy what they see and the adrenalin will keep pumping. I found the whole thing quite enjoyable.
