Safe, generic PG-13 extravaganza

"I can't think of a more important job than protecting the President."

Blockbuster extraordinaire Roland Emmerich was last seen provoking yawns with his monotonous Shakespeare drama Anonymous in 2011, and received zero box office interest in return. Looking to get back to his old tricks, 2013's White House Down is a grand, big-budget offering of explosions and general spectacle, wit... read more

A generic action film with laughable moments (both intentionally and not) and likable leads. It's better than "Olympus Has Fallen" in that it doesn't take itself too seriously. Perhaps with time some of these scenes can be iconic for kids my age when I saw 'Independence Day', perhaps...

"I lost the rocket launcher."
"You lost... How do you lose a rocket launcher?!"

Now this was a fun Die Hard in the White House movie. While Olympus Has Fallen took itself way too seriously, had awful action scenes and the most boring leading man in action since Steven Seagal, this movie knew how to have fun with this concept, knew how to ... read more

"14/1/17 Between this and the similar Olympus Has Fallen, this is far more the enjoyable because it understands that it's tripe and plays the whole thing with its tongue rammed into its mouth. Also, any film that has the President with a rocket launcher is doing it for me."

My Movie Diary 2016 (235 movies items)

"7.23A by-the-book action fare with a plot that doesn't care if it makes sense or not, borrowing enough cues from Die Hard and trying to convince us that Jamie Foxx could be the President of the United States. Outlandish, but it does entertain. Channing Tatum is as good as any action hero driven to the extreme and propels the movie with a per minute feat of heroism, guided of course by Roland Emmerich who knows how to make action movies."
