Synopsis


White House Down
A devoted father fights a ruthless paramilitary group that has seized control the White House in this high-stakes action thriller from director Roland Emmerich (2012) and writer James Vanderbilt (The Amazing Spider-Man). Dejected after being turned down for a position with the Secret Service but unable to break the news to his adoring daughter, Capitol policeman John Cale (Channing Tatum) is taking her on a tour of the White House when a powerful explosion rips through the building, sparking mass chaos. When the smoke clears, Cale learns that heavily armed rebels have taken both his daughter (Joey King) and the president (Jamie Foxx) hostage. As news of the attack creates mass panic and fear of total collapse, Cale realizes that the fate of his daughter, the Commander in Chief, and the entire nation rest in his willingness to fight back against the terrorists who have brought the most powerful nation on the planet to its knees. Maggie Gyllenhaal, Jason Clarke, Richard Jenkins, and James Woods co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Seriously, folks. If it wasn't incredibly obvious from the previews this is another PG-13 Die Hard with a different protagonist. It's got all the hilarious quotable quips, loud explosions, elevator climbing, crashing, bullet-flying, popcorn action you'd expect. It's smartly written, well-acted, and entertaining from beginning to end. Is it ridiculous? Absolutely. Is it silly? Very. It's absolutely what you want and expect from a Die Hard movie. It's also the most likable Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx have ever been in my opinion (yes, I actually sat through Step Up, She's the Man, Ray, and Stealth, slightly more traumatized with each new film). If you are expecting Independence Day or Stargate levels of over-the-top sci-fi battle-royale-with-cheese you will be disappointed. If you just want a rollicking good time with a Die Hard flick set in the White House you're probably going to love this movie. It doesn't have a SINGLE annoying character and I actually laughed at the jokes. The performances by the superb cast are uniformly excellent. The sound, effects, camera-work, and overall direction of the film do not disappoint. Highly recommended to action fans who like things on the over-the-top entertaining side you can crunch popcorn to and wash down with a Slurpee.

    This movie is great! I love that even through all the action they have a lot of humour. Even though I say this movie is great, there are a few corny parts and lines. For the most part the acting is really good, but I'm real picky when I watch a movie. But one thing that bothered me was the fact that they said all this stuff happened in like half an hour or so, but they did WAY more than most people could have in that time. If I were the creators I would have stuck with a more "real life" time frame. If you have seen it you will understand what I mean. And let's get real- Channing Tatum looks great! Lol and his acting in this film is great, for the most part (one or two times it didn't feel right to me). I would not let kids under 10 watch it, but that is me.

    There have been hundreds of movies where the USA comes under attack. This movie seems like a rehash of every one of those films. There was really no wow factor, nothing new. Looks like the producers took ideas from movies that have already been overused, threw them together and created this movie...White House Down. I guess the movie isn't all that bad. Foxx and Tatum have a chemistry between them. The light humor between the two gives you a couple of time outs from the movies intense scenes, making the long winded two hour movie a little bit easier to sit through. The story line is absolutely predictable...don't expect any twists.

    I like the characters in this movie played by Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx. This movie is a very entertaining action movie with a lot of comedic scenes. A similar movie, Olympus Has Fallen, was all action. But Gerald Butler did a great job playing the action hero in that movie, probably better than Channing Tatum did in this movie. I think both of these movies deserve 4 Stars in terms of entertainment value. Remember I go to the movies for an escape, not for realism. "Suspension of Disbelief" was the phrase that was coined by the Sharon Stone character in the movie, Basic Instincts.

    I went to see this movie with my husband and was pleasantly surprised. Although I like both of these actors, action films with political themes do not usually hold my interest...however, this film kept moving, kept twisting and turning...held my interest to the end. I know that some of the situations were a little far fetched, but who cares? I wanted to see something that would take my mind off of everyday situations and this film did just that! It had comedy, suspense, and action...I sooooo enjoyed this movie

    Where to start? This movie was great. Filled with many action packed scenes and a couple of comedic scenes as well, which of course should have seen it coming since Jamie Foxx is int it. Both Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx work together to bring a action/comedic movie all while portraying the seriousness an attack on our nations capital would look like. The one thing that brings it down a bit, is the strong similar story line to that of "Olympus has Fallen". Even still, "White House Down" held its own.

    The actor who played Ezio's father, Orzari... Tatum, Woods, Jenkins... I mean what more could you want. I honestly haven't seen Jenkins in anything since that "Eddie" film, so it was nice to see him in something worthwhile again. This film will leave you excited and wanting more. I've probably watched it about 7 times now. It never really gets old, and I'm hoping for some kind of sequel in the near future. Maybe defending the President again when he's traveling overseas somewhere...?
