Goofs

When President Asher arrives at Westminster Abbey in London, Agent Banning opens the rear door of The President's State motorcade vehicle which he later refers to as "The Beast". It's obvious that the door of the car is only a few inches thick like a typical limousine. In reality, "The Beast" has doors almost 8 inches thick and are made of heavy ballistic armor and bullet proof glass. The actual vehicle is built on a Cadillac Escalade chassis and weighs approximately 18,000 pounds. See more »

Mike Banning: You're fucked.

Utter, utter, utter, utter, utter, drivel.
16 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

The worst movie I've had the misfortune to watch in a considerable time. Awful writing, awful acting, just awful in every respect. Not an ounce of realism or believability. Simply staggeringly stupid in every way. The basic premise could have worked, a terrorist attack on London, but absolutely no rational thought was put into the execution of the idea. Lazy, shallow, brain-dead film making. As it went on I actually thought I was watching a parody. Deeply depressing that so much money went into such a poor excuse for entertainment. Very, very sad indeed. I've actually run out of things to say about this movie as there's absolutely nothing to salvage. It's a train wreck. A hopeless, weak, still-born abomination of a movie.
