President Under Siege

(aka: The Prime Minister, 2016)

This movie is a crime thriller about kidnapping and political assassination.

Although the DVD cover artwork includes Apache and Black Hawk images, no such military helicopters appear in this Belgian movie.

There’s just a police MD 902 and an MD 500N seen on-screen, parked in the background for the airport scene.

There's a Sikorsky S-76B flying along the coast. 

The same S-76 helicopter also flies above a city.

The best rotary action sequence has a military EC-145 (Airbus H145), perhaps in role of an exported UH-71 Lakota, that soars over the jungle for a crook’s suicidal jump from 1,000 feet.
