Storyline Heading
Capitol Policeman John Cale has just been denied his dream job with the Secret Service of protecting President James Sawyer. Not wanting to let down his little girl with the news, he takes her on a tour of the White House, when the complex is overtaken by a heavily armed paramilitary group. Now, with the nation's government falling into chaos and time running out, it's up to Cale to save the president, his daughter, and the country.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action - This over the top action film has a similar plot to this past spring's Olympus Has Fallen, but it is less violent and has a bit more humor than that film. That said, the action and language can get too intense for parents of younger children. Fans of Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx should enjoy though the latter's role is clearly secondary to the former's.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average It's a shame that the talent of Jamie Foxx, Richard Jenkins, and Maggie Gyllenhaal and the charisma of Channing Tatum have been wasted in this overlong, meandering example of disaster porn.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good 'White House Down' is still too gun-happy, and too long, but however you feel about the Oval Office, our country, or some of the movie's jingoism, young Emily is worth rescuing.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average Who can resist a war hero willing to risk everything to protect his adorable daughter and his high-minded president in one movie? It's popcorn patriotism at its finest.

NY Post Full Review
Good 'White House Down' is the funniest thing I've seen this year ...

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 127 moviegoers:
GREAT REVIEWS! Anytime three-quarters, or more, of the reviews come in "Fantastic" or "Excellent," it's a movie you definitely want to see. Of the remaining quarter, who didn't love "White House Down," better than half rated it as a movie they enjoyed very much. Only a relatively small percentage rated it as low as "Good/Average," which isn't a bad review. In fact, equally important is that there were no low reviews.
