    I can not wait to see the film looks great, and very well thought

  2. Looks impressive, anything Gerry’s in Im watching..

  3. S Lambert says:

    Solid, very impressive cast ! Morgan Freeman in your movie automatically elevates the whole project. Gerry Butler looks to be at his very best. One thing about him is that he cannot be typecast, (even tho his “this is Sparta” did seem to hang around a long time.) It looks like they worked hard to copy the real White House as a set etc. Very fast paced action. Maybe this will be the kind of movie that will make you want to cheer for, and feel good about being an American ! We can always do with a good shot of patriotism. I am going to see it for sure !

  4. I can’t wait!!!!
