Aaron Eckhardt makes a great, courageous POTUS. I'd vote for this guy any time.
Morgan Freeman gives his usual magnetic performance as the Speaker of the House and accepts the title of President while the POTUS is "tied up." Along with the title, the stress of making the delicate life-saving decisions to end the disastrous situation were so beautifully seen in all of his facial expressions.
Angela Bassett does a brilliant job as the calm, thoughtful Director of the Secret Service. If I was in a plane going down, I would want to sit next to her.
I could tell you how the movie ends - but then I'd have to kill you.
This movie is chock full of car bombs, blood, airplane attacks, machine guns, judo, more blood, broken necks, knives, helicopters, a lot more blood, and detonating explosions. It is an extremely violent film. A lot of it was unbelievable and far-fetched. But the thing that I can't take away from this film is the fact that it is sheer entertainment.
When the Mister asked me what I thought as we walked out of the theatre, I replied "it was pleasant," the same answer he gave me last week, when I asked him about my movie pick.
But secretly, I loved it.
P.S. Dear Friends... I had to add that awful "word verification" thing to my comment section. At first, I didn't mind getting spam comments because I would take all the comments I could get. But now they have included words that are not acceptable so that's why I asked the Mister to put it on for me. Hopefully, he did it correctly. If not, please let me know and I will have to hold dinner from him for a week or call George Clooney and see if he's available yet.
Have a great Monday!
