Haven't seen the DVD, but I liked the film. It was a good political thriller.

If you don't know what its about...

It takes place in the year 2008 during the Presidential Primaries. The President (Pollack), while on his campaign trail to get elected gets stuck with his entorage(sp?) in a small town Colorado diner. While they are there, they hear news that Iraq has invaded Kuwait. I don't want to give too much away, but its sorta hinging on a possible WWIII... and it kept me entertained to the end.

I neither loved nor hated this film. Some genuine tension is created but, ultimately, the script lets the rest of the production down.

My complete review is here:
