White House Down

White House Down (2013)

Roland Emmerich

½

While on a tour of the White House with his young daughter, a Capitol policeman springs into action to save his child and protect the president from a heavily armed group of paramilitary invaders.

Put Channing Tatum in a white tank and an army vest and you’ve got yourself a movie.

(sidebar: that’s how far I got in this review in an hour.)

The previews do a good job of giving you what this movie is about. Great action, plenty of humor, a formula storyline and more than enough entertainment to get you through two giant tubs of popcorn.

Better than the average action flick, with Channing and Jamie hilariously playing off each other in the ridiculousness of the situation presented. Really, you could play a drinking game with how many times Channing jumps/crashes/gets thrown through a window.

Yeah, the plot is ‘to the letter’ formulaic, probably to the point there isn’t a single frame on the editing room floor, but it’s a solid ride none the less.

A perfect summer movie to get you out of the heat and enjoy some eye candy.
