White House Down : Movie Review

Everyone says it is just the remake of Olympus Has Fallen (which unfortunately I could not review). However, I disagree. Yes it is pretty much the same thing, but unlike the Gerard Butler show, White House Down played up exactly the right assets the duo team of Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx.

I feel that although the plot is in essence the exact same – the white house is taken by terrorists and a loan non-secret service hottie has to save the day – it was done in a completely different fashion that had me entertained the entire time. The comedic relief was just enough especially as it is hard to take Tatum 100% serious without his comedic moments, and therefore gave his character a reason to exist that was believable.

So, if you like these types of movies and if you enjoyed Olympus Has Fallen or even if you didn’t, I still say give White House Down a chance. It holds up more than expected.
