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

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.

This is a movie for all ages, The action lasts all the way through the movie, Channing Tatum's and Jamie Foxx's Best Roles what a team and as far as Emily she brings every heart in the audience routing for her. A must see movie.

I was not expecting much from White House Down. (The premise is basically covered in the trailer so what else would fill 2 hours?) However, this film was well written for a buddy cop comedy and was actually quite hilarious. Plot points were either expected or, again, kind of cheesy action-y, but I would highly recommend you watch this if you're at all into Channing Tatum/Jamie Foxx, buddy comedies, action films, or stuff involving DC/The White House.

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.
