The jogging sequence at the start of the film, was filmed in Kensington Gardens in central London. See more »
The so-called terrorists were said to be Pakistani, but the accents were wrong and many of the cultural details were incorrect. For instance, women and men wouldn't be dancing together at the wedding wearing saris. That's an Indian thing, not Pakistani. See more »
We should go for the embassy.
No, they'll be expecting that. There's an MI6 safehouse near here. I have a contact there. We go there, we wait it out, and we get an extraction.
Do you trust them?

The fact is, every single one of these guys is a terrorist asshole until proven otherwise. The only person you trust right now is me, okay?

Before listening to all of the 1 star reviews, hear me out. To start, if you think you're going to be watching a summer movie blockbuster that's 10/10 than you don't have a great judgement on films. Was the movie plot thin? Sure. Was the acting "Oscar winning?" Most certainly not. However, if you enjoy a decent action packed film from start to finish, you may just like this one a little bit. Gerard Butler plays his typical bad ass, ex-marine type character that helps to save the President of the United States. There's your plot. Simple and no more to it. That's what this film intended to give you. A simple plotted movie for action packed movie lovers. So, before you decide to toss this one out, go on Netflix on a boring Sunday afternoon and give it a try.
