No credibility

While the acting was good, the story was not. I have a great deal of respect for Secret Service agents, but this one makes them out to be buffoons. Security? My local mall has better security than shown in the White House. Known terrorists allowed into the White House? Bombs in with their equipment? Please - there wasn't even an attempt at being realistic.

Needed improvement

I thought that this movie was just okay. It seemed to come out to close to a movie with a similar theme, Olympus Has Fallen. Though I like both Jamie and Channing as actors, the movie didn't seem realistic to me and they looked like actors and didn't make me feel as though I was in the moment.
