Highly Entertaining

White House Down (2013) delivers from the beginning a sense of action, thrills as to what the audience would get a look upon. The lead is John Cale (Channing Tatum), an ex-military guy currently serving as the Capitol policeman protecting the Speaker of the House (Richard Jenkins). It's a dull job that involves chasing squirrels and marking time. John's dream is becoming a Secret Service agent, as much to be where the action it as to impress his daughter, Emily (Joey King), a fan of all things political. He calls in a favor for an agency interview, only to have an old friend, and possibly old flame (Maggie Gyllenhaal), perform the duty. She's fond of John, but the less than sterling file on him makes it plain that only a miracle will get him his dream job.

Fortunately, a miracle in on the way. Or, rather, a well-timed, well- planned takeover of the White House that goes down just as John and Emily are in the middle of the White House tour. Unfortunately, it's when Emily has excused herself to use the facilities, and John spend the rest of the film protecting the president, foiling the terrorists, and looking for his daughter. What we see upon the end is a well paced finished, and although it was predictable, the execution is what made several parts excel. Comparing to Olympus has Fallen, White House Down does not take itself nearly as seriously, and the storyline is better written, with more heartfelt moments. We get to know more about the characters that in Olympus Has Fallen, and the chemistry between Tatum and Foxx is what excels the film for the better.

Typical Hollywood, PC Liberal trash

Terrorists blow up the Capitol building, killing innocent people by the score, then go in the White House, where they slaughter MORE innocents.

Who were these terrorist scum? Isis? El Quida? Muslim attack teams? No, of course not, this is Hollywood! The terrorists are American-born, home grown, "right-wingers." But of course, just like American right-wingers took down the World Trade center, set bombs at the Boston Marathon, and wiped out dozens at an Orlando nightclub, those darn right wingers.

Movie has television newsman in the background blaming those poor, innocent Muslim terrorists for the carnage before the dust has settled, setting the stage for a round of PC, "Oh, how can we blame the poor Muslims for a terror attack when it's those darn American conservatives who are notorious for such attacks? Shame on us. Waaaaaa! Well, at least they didn't say the terrorists were on their way to the Republican national convention, at least- maybe next time.

Just sickening, nauseating, far-fetched, unrealistic, left-wing crap.

Great acting by James Woods, though.

Explosions, Gun Battles, and Channing's Biceps

Not since President Harrison Ford battled terrorists aboard "Air Force One" has a U.S. movie president faced the peril that challenges President Jamie Foxx in "White House Down." An unidentified group detonates a bomb in the U.S. Capitol Building, then takes hostages in the White House and shoots up the historic mansion, destroying priceless artifacts and paintings to the chagrin of a tour guide. Audiences know what they want from a Roland Emmerich movie, and "White House Down" delivers the goods; rapid cutting, action, explosions, gun battles, cheering onlookers, wise-ass heroes and bad-ass villains.

Clich├ęs abound; from a troubled father-daughter relationship to an expository job interview that details the hero's past and a White House tour that fills in the history of the presidential mansion, the plot inches forward until the explosions literally begin. However, logic and plausibility also evaporate as the pace accelerates. While metal detectors screen visitors, the terrorists have an arsenal of automatic weapons already in the White House. While bullets fly and White House staff and visitors cower and flee, a young girl records everything on video for her on-line blog. Preposterous would come to mind, if the action allowed viewers to pause and think for a moment.

The cast of professionals is capable for this type of film. Headed by Channing Tatum, who sports a fetching sleeveless tunic to highlight his biceps, is the negligent father, caught in the dire White House situation with his blogger daughter. Jamie Foxx is fine as the President, while Maggie Gyllenhaal and Richard Jenkins both try to rise above the trite material, which was written by James Vanderbilt. Always fun to watch, James Woods manages to chew on the government-issue scenery in a showy role. The current resident of the White House, who claims ignorance of the 25th Amendment, should catch this film as that amendment is cited several times.

Audiences for a Roland Emmerich movie know what they want, and "White House Down" will deliver the goods for them. However, after two hours plus of mindless action, plot holes big enough to swallow a tank or a helicopter, and casual dialog between elected officials that propels the world towards Armageddon, some viewers may long for a slower paced film with a literate script and a plot based on logic. But then again, some may find Channing and his muscles more satisfying than either literacy or logic.
