    By the numbers action sequences with terrible CGI, pacing, lighting, and editing. Worse acting, plot, dialogue, and characterization. Gerald Butler deserves better, Morgan Freeman and Aaron Eckhart can DO better. Includes laughable patriotism, contrived holes in narrative, action stereotypes, and some pointless scenes of gruesome and misogynistic violence for the icing on the cake. Seriously guys, there's a fucking TICKING CLOCK. A huge missed opportunity, and I'll be waiting for 'White House Down' in a few months to wash the taste of this out of my mouth. This was the same director that did Training Day? Are you SERIOUS? Modern action deserves so much better than this piece of trash.

    PS. Die Hard called, it wants the glass in the feet of the hero back.

    You really shouldn't expect a movie about a terrorist attack on the White House to be anything less than super-mega-Patriotic with a capital P. If anything, the movie shows rather a lot of restraint in this area. Given the story, it could have been so much worse. Still, it's a bit thick, in every sense of the word.

    The action was good, well paced and exciting. The CGI suffered at times and there was really no room for the acting talent on the roster to thrive. Several story points were wasted.

    Recommended. Beware: heavy USA#1 patriotism.
