Not an Oscar movie & a little predictable but very exciting and fun. Foxx & Tatum have great chemistry. I loved it. I say A-,
This review is from: White House Down (Two Disc Combo: Blu-ray / DVD + UltraViolet Digital Copy) (Blu-ray)
"I can't think of a more important job then protecting the President." John Cale (Tatum) is a policeman working in Washington D.C. Trying to reconnect with his young daughter he brings her with him to the White House for his interview with the Secret Service. While there they meet the President (Foxx) and she is having the best day. When a group attacks the White House and goes after the President the only person who is able to help is Cale. Now he has to try and protect both the President and get his daughter out safely. I was pretty excited about seeing this. I am a big Jamie Foxx fan, but I was leery of Tatum (not a fan). I will admit that the chemistry between them was very good and the movie had some very funny parts in this as well as wall to wall action. This is the latest movie in Hollywood's "I can do it better" series. Other movies in this club are Deep Impact & Armageddon, Illusionist & Prestige, movies with the same idea coming out close to each other. While Olympus Has Fallen was OK and worth seeing this one was way better and if you had to choose between the two this is the way to go. There really isn't a dull moment in this and I highly recommend it. Overall, not an Oscar type movie and a little predictable but a movie that is very exciting and fun. I really liked it. I give it an A-.
