The Indian Express rating: **

NOW here is one way to fell the US that no one perhaps thought of — and obviously no one can. However,Fuqua (Training Day) keeps his film going so fast and so furious that you will hopefully have no time to think of the million reasons why a North Korean terrorist group,led by a South Korean service agent attached to its PM,can’t bombard,blast and shoot its way into the White House and hold the US President hostage in 13 minutes.

Yes,the group is proud of this factoid,as it well should be given the mayhem and murder they rain down on that most hallowed space of planet earth — from air and ground,with an assembly of North Koreans who just keep popping up around White House. Amid the ashes and dust and wreckage,Butler is the one-man Special Agent army who comes true.

It takes him approximately 12 hours to set the world all right. Just in case you were wondering.
