This review is from: White House Down Steelbook [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
I liked Olympus Has Fallen so was keen to see how this film compared as they are dealing with the same situation. But I'm afraid I was disappointed with White House Down. The 'father has to save his daughter' thing has been done before and it just frustrates the progress of the film. OK, it's done to introduce a caring and emotional angle to the film, but us blokes like a serious, believable action movie. The film is very corny with deliberate attempts to create humour. Many of the situations and scenarios just wouldn't happen. It could have been better without the clichés and why is there always an insider traitor? And CGI helicopters that look totally unreal. But the worst part of the film was the ending. In such a serious situation would the President really go on a joyride? I think not.
