This movie is a fantastic, leave your brain at the door action packed movie, and why are people reviewing it like they’re reviewing some crap Oscar nominated piece of drivel? People complaining about plot holes and character development ha ha makes me laugh, no doubt the mindless Millennials who we all know can’t think for themselves, watch this movie if you like a great action movie, if you’re looking for La La land this is not for you!!!
Tight action thriller!
Only to find out that it is no longer inside of my Library's list of movies I have saved. I am sure I am not the only person Apple has done this to.
This is a suspension of disbelief film, a flag-waving shoot-em-up that is full of holes in just about every way, and essentially just a loud, expensive B movie.
I think that everyone did an awesome job in this movie and it's worth the third sequel!
Entertaining and worth the rental.
If I rent a movie off here how long does it let me keep it
I'm getting tired of the critics talking about this movie is racist. How???? In case you've been living under a rock, North Korea is in fact a very real threat. How is using that fact as a movie premise racist? Get over yourselves. This extreme PC-to-the-point-of-ridiculousness is the impetus to how an idiot like Trump managed to get this far toward the white house. (Maybe we should rename the white house too. Never mind that it's a house painted white.) My racial category is "other" and even I'm sick of this dumbness. Sh*t.
Was able to sit back and enjoy the action and get away from reality. Excellent acting all around. After watching white house down because of friends saying it was great as i sat in theatre saying no no no why so much propaganda i was skeptical to watch this. Restored my love for action movies. Impossible odds, but good guys win in the end.
