Goofs

In the final scene, Mike Banning moves the cursor of his MacBook over the delete button but instead of clicking he hits the enter key. On screen we see the delete button being clicked but in actual fact hitting enter on MacOS will always invoke the primary action of a dialog box, in this case, sending the e-mail. See more »

Quotes

Mike Banning: [the President just saved his life by killing a bad guy] I was wondering when you were gonna come out of the closet.

Absolute nonsense
12 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

Possibly the worst movie ever, idiotic plot, typical American cheeseburger movie. Clichés, nonsense, irrational scenarios, hatred against specific cultures and races, and everyone is stupid except the American cool-tempered invincible hero. An explosion that kills hundreds of people simply makes an exception for the mighty hero and his president. They are barely scratched.

There is absolutely nothing in this film remotely believable. All actors including Morgan Freeman were terrible. Gerard Butler stands on a level of his own, no decent actor should accept such role.

I can't believe that I wasted any time of my life watching this.

1 star, I wish I could give it a zero
