WHITE HOUSE DOWN (2013) : REVIEW
June 26, 2013
"I can’t think of a more important job than protecting the President."
Releasing a movie with the same-old formula just 3 months after the failure of the other (ehm Antoine Fuqua's Olympus Has Fallen), especially with Roland Emmerich's name behind it : a destruction seal? How brave. And I certainly appreciate the bravery, though I still couldn't help setting the lowest expectation I could give, because it's Roland Emmerich after all. Need I remind you that I wasn't watching this mainly because of Channing Tatum (I'm so sick of the stereotype of girls-enjoying-movie-because-of-the-handsome-actor-in-it). But, I do need to remind you to shut your brain down for good, because the next (too long and purposeless) 137 minutes will hurt.
