Goofs

During the assault on the president at the hospital, one of Salient's men is carrying an AK, which doesn't make sense since magazine compatibility of the team would be an issue. Also the operative fires the AK in auto mode, but the safety is in the lowest position which would be semi-automatic. Automatic is the middle position on an AK safety. See more »

Quotes

Secret Service Director David Gentry: Have you completely lost your mind?
Mike Banning: You have a true condition red here, David. You need to get me to the president. Why the fuck would I give myself up? This is a real fucking threat!

Angel Butler
25 September 2019 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Leonidas cannot fail ... I mean fall ... right? Sorry I'm mixing up my movies here. But you can see the action star Butler going for it again - a third time. And if you thought the other movies were crazy and unrealistic ... well you were right and this one adds to that! What did you think I was going to say? In all seriousness - do not take this movie serious.

Predictable story, predictable twists and turns ... and an even relatively mild Nick Nolte. But the story itself is quite out there ... really wild and really "explosive" (pun intended). A lot of action and a lot of nonsense ... and it can be quite some fun, if you allow it to
