5.0 out of 5 stars Die Hard for the new generation!!! 27 Aug 2014
Format:DVD
I really enjoyed this film. Great performances from Foxx and Tatum, but most of all a Die Hard style gripping action movie. This is an action movie, it is fast passed and dramatic, with subtle humor added in. Despite being over 2 hours long the film does not drag at all. I was either griped by the drama, or distracted by an explosion the whole time.

The story Foxx stars as the current president of the US, he is striving for peace in the middle east, but this does not sit well with the weapons manufacturers. Tatum plays a down on his luck former soldier, starting to get his life together, currently working as a senatorial bodyguard. He is trying to redeem himself in the eyes of his estranged but politically idealistic daughter so applies for a job in the secret service to protect the president. Scoring tickets to a tour of the White House in the process. So of course he is on hand when there is a domestic terrorist attack on the White House.

I enjoyed this film from the beginning to the end. It ticked all the boxes for me, and I would recommend this to anyone. This is a fun to watch action film keep that in mind and enjoy. this is one of the best action movies I have seen in a long time.

4.0 out of 5 stars 'SEEMS A TOUGH WAY TO GET A JOB OFFER' 20 Jan 2014
By rbmusicman TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Not for the first time, two film studios made Movies with a similar
theme.
Personally I quite enjoyed 'Olympus has Fallen' with 'Gerard Butler'
This film is brought to us by the director 'Roland Emmerick' who
brought us the visually spectacular movies such as...'INDEPENDENCE
DAY'....'THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW'....and...'2012'
'John Cale' goes to the 'White House' for an interview to join the
security staff there, he takes his young daughter 'Emily' along to
enjoy the experience of the surroundings.
He's turned down, he and his daughter join a White House tour that
is just about to start, before the tour is completed a 'paramilitary'
group posing as workmen have smuggled in an explosive device along
with an array of weaponry, things soon kick off.
'Cale's' first instinct is keep his daughter safe, but events move
fast he soon becomes a key player in trying to ensure 'President
James Sawyer's' safety.
Retiring Chief of Security 'Walker' is running the show....he has
a purpose in mind....if things don't go the way he intends and the
authorities don't follow instructions....the sixty one hostages die,
along with the President (if they can find him that is)
Explosive action throughout as all-hell breaks loose in and around
the White House'
As one would expect there is an impressive array of special-effects
to cherish.
Great picture and sound quality throughout.
(can honestly say, I enjoyed both this and the 'Gerard Butler' movie)
5/5 for entertainment value.

4.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant mix of comedy and action 6 Aug 2013
By Laura Hartley TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I'll be honest, I didn't have very high hopes for White House Down when I sat down to watch it; however, I found that I absolutely loved this film. White House Down mixes together action and comedy to create a really entertaining film that grips you from beginning to end.

That's not to say that this film isn't flawed, because it is in many ways. First and foremost are the special effects. Whilst at times they were excellent, at others, they really weren't. The opening shots of the White House are evidently fake and there are a few other moments that are supposed to be visually spectacular that are clearly the work of what seems to be an amateur CGI artist. This was disappointing because had these effects been bettered, even by just a little, this film would've earned itself a few more brownie points.

The plot of this film, for the most part is well structured and exciting. This film is about catastrophic events that take place when the White House is infiltrated, but the reason for this is cleverly concealed until the very end. There are numerous plot twists throughout the film (even in the last five minutes!) that keep you on your toes. I most certainly would not have been able to predict the way this movie would pan out, something that I think should be commended given that this sort f film has been made and remade time and time again. This is a newer, certainly more thrilling, take on the 'President-in-crisis' story. That said, there were a few moments, more towards the end of the film, where slightly too unrealistic events were occurring. Sometimes this was a fault of the humour that embodies this film, at others, just an over-excited script writer.

I was surprised to find that White House Down is actually a really funny film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Die Hard in The White House 5 May 2014
Format:DVD
Make no mistake, this is a highly enjoyable film. A brilliant homage to the Die Hard films. Substitute Bruce Willis' John McClane with Channing Tatum's John Cale. Add James Wood (looking remarkably like Malcolm McDowell) and Richard Jenkins as devious villains with accompanying snarling henchmen. Throw in Obamaesque Jamie Foxx as the President. Sprinkle with gunfire, explosions and suitably placed witticisms and you have a recipe for a very relaxing couple of hours. I watched this film after watching the superb Borgen trilogy. A bit of a contrast, but I feel that both stay true to their genres. I rented this but I will definitely be purchasing White House Down in the future.
