What an awesome suspense/action/thriller! I haven’t seen this since it came out in 2013 but I was excited to revisit it. Antoine Fuqua is one of my favorite directors.
The special effects are a little shaky but considering how much they had to build in effects (since they obviously couldn’t film in DC or get any shots of the White House), I give it a pass.
There are a LOT of small parallels to ‘DIE HARD’ — more than I remember the last time I watched this.
