Doesn't miss the opportunity to use a cliche!,
This review is from: White House Down (DVD)
In all honesty, unless you want to watch this in ironic terms I'd avoid, Olympus Has Fallen of the two White House/Presidential thrillers of late is the better.
If you've seen Die Hard and/or a smattering of thrillers you will be able to guess what happens next, it is THAT predictable.
Subtle is not a word you would use in relation to this film, every event throughout the film is heavily and heavy-handedly telegraphed.
Right down to you get to see early on *spoiler alert* the President's pocket watch and yes, you've guessed it, later on it saves him from being fatally shot.
Next to no tension and next to no chemistry between Tatum & Foxx who regards the latter is clearly do this for the $$.
Also, has a candidate for most annoying child actress in cinema history.
In closing, all I can say is "you have been warned".
