Mike was a former agent who used to work in the White House, protecting the President. after the death of the President's wife, he was discharged since he reminded the President too much of this painful past. one day, terrorists trapped the President inside the White House. Mike found himself fighting alongside the national security team but was the only one who made it into the White House alive. outside, the strategists were forced to rely on Mike and his past knowledge to retake the White House and save the President before the terrorists succeeded in their mission.
the film was most attractive action wise. there were so much blood and gore that one just couldn't get enough of it. the fighting choreography was fierce if not godlike for our few main characters. the plot of having North Korea abducted the President of United States to get back South Korea was until the very end, confusing but fortunately, didn't do much to hurt the flow. the complexity of the plan to get into the White House without detection was however, very welcoming. the villains of the film were led by Kang, a coldblooded leader that was not so distasteful but performed his part beautifully.
