IMDB: White House Down – 2013
IMDB Rating: 6.4/10
Rotten Tomatoes: 51%
It was just another day at the office, and just another job interview. Just another tour of a public monument. And then the day starts going slightly pear shaped, and then even worse when he gets separated from his daughter.
Explosions, gun fights, surface to air fights, car chases, SEAL team attacks, grenade fights, punch ups, and general violence.
I’m not sure how I feel about this movie, asides from the violence (well actually including that), a lot of this just feels blatantly fake. Though there are moments make you smile (the tour guide and the antique german made mantle close for one), there just isn’t anything exciting about it. And yet, despite that, I enjoy the damn thing.
If you after something particularly violent and mindless it’s not a bad choice, if you’re after much else, you’ll find it falling short of what you’re looking for.
