What olympus of fallen should have been!

If you read my reviews you know that I hated olympus has fallen with a passion. That movie was the worst movie I've seen this year so when I started seeing tv spots for white house down I was hoping this would be everything Olympus has fallen was not. i'm so happy to say white house down is 1000% better than Olympus has fallen. First off the cast was excellent Tatum and Foxx were a really cool duo,I really enjoyed Maggie Gylenhaal as well but the person that stole the show for me was Joey king I was not expecting her to have such a big role but she was great and Emily cale. This movie is everything you'd expect from a funny action packed summer blockbuster. it has action and comedy which was well balanced which could have been a huge problem if it wasn't. I Jut thought i'd throw this in before I end this review. the opening scene was beautiful in the way it showed off D.C.. I loved this movie. i'd give it a 9/10

White House Down

What a pathetic piece of political crap! They could have chosen from the many usual enemies of the US but they chose to make it political. Besides Jamie Foxx is a pretty sad choice for the President of the US. Channing Tatum was the only one in the movie who could shoot and hit a target. The poor right-wing Terrorists couldn't hit the side of a barn. Too pathetic. What a waste of money.

Good Action Entertaining

If anything go see the movie for the action. It will keep you at the edge of your seat. Foxx wasn't that really a convincing president, of course neither is Obama "sorry ". couldn't pass that statement up. Good story line and special effects. Tatum was good But I think the girl that played his daughter, did an excellent job. So again go see it for the action and special effects. and if anything it will get you out of the hot sun the next few days if you live in southern calif. I wonder if this ever really happened if the Tea Party would get the blame.

B+

I have to give 'White House Down' a B+. I actually really enjoyed it. I felt like the acting was solid, Channing Tatum definitely stepped up his game. It did have some comedic parts but not enough where you felt the movie was unrealistic. The special effects were great. Fast-paced. It is predictable but the action lasts throughout the entire movie. The only downside for me was that it was a little hard to follow because it was so fast-paced and a tad too long. I would definitely recommend it and see it again.
