More flashy and "Hollywood" than Olympus Has Fallen. Still, it kept me on the edge of my seat in some places.

Great movie that made you laugh and pulled on your heart strings! A must see! Love Jamie Fox & Channing Tatum. Who knew that Maggie Gyllenhal would be good in this one? An unexpected gem. Love Jason Clarke as a villian. Wish he had more movies that would utilize his accent.

Horrible. The plot was lame and unrealistic.

This film is a whole new level of action film. I wasn't sure why until I watched the extra features in the DVD. The director made sure that every major character has a background we can relate to. He spent time to bring up pieces about why bad guys become bad, good guys are still good, including all secondary and tertiary characters .... without any delay on the storyline. It is quite mesmerizing in term of an action movie.

Oh Man I Liked The Dialouge When The President Said End Of The Last Moment...And Its Was--- Son Of My Bitch...The Was Unexceptable Term He Was Really Mad At The Last Time

The closest we'll come to a genuine DIE HARD film in this day and age, WHITE HOUSE DOWN is a fun action film. I appreciated what it set out to do. It was entertaining and exciting and that's really all I can ask of it. I'd recommend it.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance. Very predictable but still entertaining.

An action film that appeals to everyone but it has a political undertone that won't appeal to the far right. It developed the main characters well especially between the father and daughter. Good casting and acting by all actors. The flow of the movie is excellent. Kudos also to the director and writer.
