I've not stopped thinking about it -- weighing might-have-beens and alternative courses of action, as though remembering an actual event rather than a nimble, superbly-realized fantasy. That's a first-rate achievement.
A triumph of low-budget filmmaking.
A taut, consistently surprising political thriller with a sting in its tail.
A carefully conceived and earnest movie that announces its many points just a bit too carefully and earnestly.
There's nothing super about the movie, aside from a loopiness that affords it a certain guilty-pleasure cachet.
A new political thriller, has an ending so egregiously stupid that not to reveal it would be a disservice to moviegoers.
To say this movie's premise is bonkers is putting it mildly.
Ludicrously written and appallingly directed by ex-film critic Rod Lurie, seems to pride itself on the fact that it never (ever) leaves the greasy-spoon milieu in which the president and his staff are trapped by heavy snowfall.
