White House Down
White House Down (2013)
A film Directed by Roland Emmerich of Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow and Godzilla, is a action film that seemed to be taken from the pages of a Die Hard script. If you looking for an action film with plenty of hand to hand fight scenes, gun play, and explosions with a touch of humor you will love White House Down.
To please the ladies young and old you have Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx serving up an action and one liner duo that delivers in hard hitting action and quick witted humor. Channing plays Cale an ex- military vet looking to become a secret service agent. While on tour of the White House with his Emily the two meet the President of the United States William Sawyer played by Jamie Foxx.
During the Tour the White House is taken over by Terrorist with a plot to kidnap the President and Cale is the one man that can stop them. Cale and the President team up to save the world from destruction with lots of mayhem in between.
Jamie’s character as the President is sincere yet refreshingly loose as he still clings to his street wise roots. Channing delivers on all that you could expect from an action star including dare devil stunts, and and uncanny ability to survive every explosion he manages to hide only a few feet away from.
Overall the movie is an excellent action adventure. If you looking for a movie to hit up with your boys or something entertaining for both you and your significant other to see. White House Down is an excellent feature. For our official rating we give it a “Pay Full Price”.
Die Hard 2 (1990)
If you looking to stay home but still want to catch an action flick in the same realm of action you can flash back Die Hard 2: Die Harder starring Bruce Willis.
The second installation of the billion dollar franchise also delivers in quit wit and big explosions. As with the first film, the action in Die Hard 2 takes place on Christmas Eve.
Bruce Willis’ character McClane is waiting for his wife to land at the Washington Dulles International Airport when terrorists take over the air traffic control system. He must stop the terrorists before his wife’s plane and several other incoming fights that are circling the airport run out of fuel and crash.
During the night, McClane must also content with airport police, maintenance works, and a military commander who does not want his assistance.
