White House Down

Release date: 13th September 2013

Top Billing: Channing Tatum, Jamie Foxx, Maggie Gyllenhaal

While on tour of the White house with his daughter, John who is security for a prominent figure; springs into action when the White house is overrun by terrorist. Now he has to save the President and of course rescue his daughter.

There was always going to be comparisons with this and the earlier release of Olympus has Fallen but other than taking over the White house there isn’t too many similarities. This film is done with a lot of humour, which I think is Channing Tatum’s strength. There is no fantastic acting, no really good bad guy to get your teeth in but there is nothing wrong with it. You know what you’re getting and it doesn’t disappoint. It races from one scene to another, never really taking a breath other than to crack a joke and yes, it was very cheesy at times but it made me smile rather than cringe. It was something I could watch without having to think too hard, knowing everything would work out in the end.
