Columbia Pictures put together a handful of top notch trendy names which include Channing Tatum (G.I. Joe, Magic Mike), Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty, The Great Gatsby), Jamie Foxx (Django Unchained, Collateral) and the amazingly talented Maggie Gyllenhaal (The Dark Knight, Donnie Darko) in an action movie that will most likely keep you hypnotized from start to end.
Capitol Policeman John Cale has one dream: protecting President James Sawyer side by side with the Secret Service. Unluckily, the most important interview of his life doesn’t go as he hopes and, whenever he realizes he won’t be able to fulfill his ambitions, he decides to go for a tour of the White House with his young daughter. That will at least help him deal with the bad news and will prevent his daughter from being disappointed in him once again.
Little does he know that a family day trip will turn into an unexpected and harsh nightmare when a paramilitary terroristic group invades the Presidential residence. John Cale won’t run away from his ultimate duty: saving the country and saving his child from an utter disaster. He doesn’t have much time and he’s surrounded by absolute fear and chaos, however his willpower, his strength of mind and his sense of responsibility will help him achieve what seems impossible!
Action movies master director Roland Emmerich (Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow) and screenwriter James Vanderbilt (Zodiac, The Amazing Spider-Man) got their signature on this film, that will be released in the US on June 28th 2013 and that is already considered by many like a tribute to older classics such as Die Hard.
Script and movie critic Rich Drees finds it quite easy to notice the resemblances between the ‘80s blockbuster and the upcoming White House Down. For example, “Both Cale and McClain have a strained relationship with a family member that they are trying to repair when the action of the movie happens and of course, both family members are part of a group of people taken hostage,” Drees says on Film Buff Online
Apparently, though, White House Down goes way beyond being a stereotypical “hero/saver” movie. It has, indeed, some sort of hilarious elements, that become blatant in the way Cale deals with the situation he unfortunately finds himself into and that give his character a certain charisma which allows the viewer to get the tension relieved during some of the most stressful scenes.
So, if lots of guns, lots of explosions and plenty of running are your thing when it comes to purchasing a theater ticket, then you will not be disappointed by the authentic thrilling entertainment of White House Down. While some think this will just be another Olympus Has Fallen, others may be pleasantly surprised by what this new release has to offer. All in all, let’s not forget that Emmerich and Vanderbilt have been a constant of the past few years’ highest money making action movies!
