Admirable film.


This is a coming of age storyline that you've seen in one form or another for decades. It takes a truly unique voice to make yet another one worth watching.

The movie turns out to be a little better than the average. Starting from a romantic formula often seen in the cinema, it ends in the most predictable (and somewhat bland) way.

One of the worst ways to make a cult movie is to set out to make a cult movie.

Despite the negative reviews you've no doubt seen, White House Down is actually a really good (not to mention tense and exciting) action thriller. Paramilitary terrorists have taken over the White House, and are lead by the head of the President's security detail! There are a few surprising twists and turns, which I will not spoil. Needless to say, see this movie for yourself! It's violent, but not graphic. They also have some good humourous moments. While there are some cliched moments, they don't detract from the movie overall. And when you think about it, how many movies DON'T have cliched moments or elements? A VERY good movie!

Too many excessively long scenes. Too many plot holes. Too many implausible events. And so it goes on. This was clearly a serious ATTEMPT to produce a big budget, big deal, impressive, exciting movie, but, sadly, it is a fail. Channing Tatum was presented as Superman without the costume! The special effects are overdone, pulling down potential believability. Sorry, but I cannot stand Maggie Gyllenhaal, who comes across as a silly, officious official... and Jamie Foxx was a waste. The young kid who took the video on her phone was annoying, irritating ~ she helped tp pull the film down, too, sorry to say. She seemed to have two facial expressions only, ridiculous. I had zero sympathy for her. Careless casting. I enjoyed some of the action scenes, but they were woout and became boring! A VERY disappointing flick. 4/10. Anyone who gave an 8/10, 9/10. or 10/10 has an agenda, maybe a cast or crew member, friend or relative, or is plain silly. #

Don't believe the reviews that say this isn't as good as Olympus has Fallen. It is. But they are both bloody awful. Do yourself a favour and just watch Die Hard again instead of either of these terrible clones.

This movie is quite entertaining. But somehow the plot is always similar since it's all about sweet revenge to the POTUS. Moreover, they hired great actors to give an extravagant vibe. Some people love watching this movie because who doesn't want to see Channing Tatum become the hero of the day? I'd say, don't throw the same ball into the same hole; audiences may have different view of the game
