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.

film itself was pretty good until got almost an hour into it then the Dvd continually froze, picture and sound kept cutting out so couldn't watch rest of the movie and then when I try to return and reorder the price has went up. Really unimpressed didn't give an option to just replace what was a faulty item.

This is the best "remake" of the original Diehard movie I have seen - it's better than any of the other of the others in the franchise itself and is far superior to other attempts to recapture the magic (from Segal to Olympus Down etc).

That said, it's nowhere near as good as the granddaddy of them all - Tatum is no Willis and the baddie is not given the scope by the script to deliver the kind of performance Alan Rickman gave.

Overall, this is good popcorn fare but not a classic

Fantastic movie, almost as good as Olympus has Fallen and London has Fallen, but the inclusion of the great looking guy Channing Tatum makes all the difference!
