    @youngrizo not sure why you wouldnt use the howitzers (like you mentioned about firepower). Those would annihilate the white house in a matter of minutes.

    @youngrizo oh i see what you mean. Did you serve? I know its hard for me to watch military movies now and NOT be to critical of how the military stuff is depicted. It seems like they never get it just right.

    Aside from some campy looking CGI I think antoine Fuqua can make a damn good action movie. Im looking forward to it.

    Looks like cheesy fun, I'll watch it just for the cast.

    The VFX look like TV show, but then again I wouldn't expect much from Millenium Films.

    @cupid I really wanna re-cut this trailer and put audio from Modern warfare in there

    @skywise The reason I said, I hope it's not supposed to be an AC-130 is because they are showing mini-guns on both sides of the plane. An Ac-130 is outfitted with a certain spectrum of weapons on the left side of the plane. That detail shown in the trailer is well... supposed to be cool and I can look past it. but it would make more sense for someone to bombard the white house with all the might an AC-130 has than to use mini-guns on it

    but I will still watch and probably love the heck out of this action movie as I find movies like this entertaining even with all the stuff that strikes me as odd or whatever else

    lol but seriously I hope that's not supposed to be an AC-130 and I hope that they fix the cgi choppers cause they looked horrible in every shot. otherwise I really like the cast and the simplicity of this type of action film, it's like Splinter Cell meets Call of duty meets 24.

    Looks quite good actually, pretty unrealistic and some cheesy vfx though. But should still be a entertaining movie to watch

    I think I'll pass. The film has a decent cast, but the action looks overblown and the I think the film is taking it self to seriously at least that is what I'm getting from the trailer.
