More Info:
  • Randy Cordova

    White House Down aims to be a low-brow slab of mindless summer fun. Most of the time, it comes pretty close to hitting the bull’s eye.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Marsha McCreadie

    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. Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Only in the last half-hour do the usual Emmerich absurdities pile up: I laughed outright at the character who, past 65 and diagnosed with a massive brain tumor that will kill him within months, cannot be stopped by a ferocious beating, being stabbed in the neck with a sharp implement, then being crushed against a wall by an SUV moving at a minimum of 30 mph.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    While White House Down isn’t going to score points for originality, seriousness, or subtlety (Emmerich likes his political messages blunt and loud), it is a lot of fun; if nothing else, Emmerich is a great widescreen showman who knows how to stage mayhem on a grand scale.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    You couldn’t ask for a more fun summer popcorn movie than White House Down.

    New York Post Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Of all the dumb megabudget "Die Hard"–like action pictures of the last few years (including that other White House Goes Boom movie, "Olympus Has Fallen"), this is both the most entertaining and the most inviting of viewers' input.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Mary Pols

    What makes White House Down not just tolerable but frivolously entertaining is its slapstick soul; a scene where the presidential limousine does doughnuts on the South Lawn plays like an homage to the Keystone Kops.

    Time Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    White House Down is a hoot and a half, a shameless popcorn entertainment that is preposterous and diverting in just about equal measure.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • David Rooney

    An action thriller that doesn’t know when to quit. For the most part, though, it remains preposterously entertaining.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    Itself owing much to such lone-man-of-action hallmarks as “Die Hard” and “Speed,” this welcome throwback to an earlier, more generously entertaining era of summer blockbusters delivers a wide array of close-quarters combat and large-scale destruction, all grounded in an immensely appealing star turn by Channing Tatum and ace support from imperiled POTUS Jamie Foxx.

    Variety Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    White House Down is amply endowed with enough tension, humor, and calamitous action to ensure it a solid berth in the summer box-office sweepstakes. Channing Tatum comes into his own as a leading man in this picture, proving himself as a beefy yet agile action star and not just the pure beefcake of "Magic Mike."

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    Skip it, and you'll be depriving yourself of one of the summer's most satisfyingly stupid pleasures.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • William Goss

    At best, White House Down is a sure-fire way to kill two hours, if not countless brain cells. Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    A buddy comedy disguised as a political thriller. It’s full of malarkey, but as a campaign of shock and awe, it’s hard to resist.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Peter Keough

    Intentionally or not, Roland Emmerich’s White House Down is the comedy hit of the summer. No other film equals its comic sophistication. Each nutty scenario is surpassed by the next, ludicrous story lines coalesce with expert orchestration, and absurd details return with perfect timing to build to a crescendo of hilarity.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    While director Roland Emmerich (Independence Day) piles on outlandish scenarios, the chemistry of the lead actors mitigates the contrived setup and numbing explosions.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Mark Kermode

    This bona-fide big-budget Hollywood flop at least has the good grace to laugh at itself as it rolls out the dingbat-daft action-movie cliches.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Tom Huddleston

    The outcome may be pre-ordained, but Emmerich’s knack for a witty pop-culture reference, a pulse-pounding gun battle or a sneaky political undercurrent (the film has drawn fire in the US for being leftie propaganda) hasn’t deserted him.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Nick de Semlyen

    Lincoln meets Sudden Death: a corny but raucous throwback to when Planet Hollywood was hip. Gary Busey popping out of a rose bush wouldn’t feel out of place.

    Empire Full Review
  • Neil Smith

    Longer than OHF and just as daft, WHD makes for a more entertaining watch before succumbing to the same bombastic overkill.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Even as the story accrues preposterousness, the action moves along crisply, and Tatum and Foxx hit a nice buddy-movie vibe.

    Slate Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    This is solidly a genre picture, and one that follows all the necessary conventions -- but it's also one that does it all very well. That means lots of big, dumb and loud action -- but it also means good, popcorny, summer fun.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    This piece of midsummer madness is undeniably silly and delusional, a dire political fable told as tongue-in-cheek pastiche. Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    As demented and entertaining as promised, and a little less idiotic than feared.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    Often, the hilarity is indisputably intentional. If you think you'll laugh and clap, try it; if you know you'll hate it, you're right.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Tatum muscles his way through the role with panache, while Foxx never gets a chance to break loose.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    White House Down is nearly enough fun to be a bad movie that's a good time. But it always finds some way of being a drag, belching exposition and weak humor when action's all we need, then carrying the action to exhausting lengths.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    White House Down is never more than a sliver away from gleeful self-parody. It’s pure patriotic kitsch, the cinematic equivalent of a black-velvet painting of a bald eagle clutching an American flag in its talons as it soars majestically over Mount Rushmore.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • David Hiltbrand

    The main flaw of White House Down is that it overstays its welcome, thanks in large part to a silly climax that seems to unfold in three laborious acts. At least, Tatum keeps his shirt off.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    It's probably not a good idea to examine the political content of a film in which the leader of the free world proves that the pen is mightier than the sword by stabbing someone in the neck with one.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    This sloppy mess also pales in comparison to the better-paced, taut "Olympus Has Fallen," which represents 2013's better White House invasion story.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Formula action films don’t come much more formulaic that this.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    This is getting old.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    White House Down is a corker, real competition for “Fast & Furious 6″ as the dumbest fun you’ll have at the movies this summer.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Perhaps afraid that watching a symbol of liberty repeatedly go boom isn’t enough, Emmerich and screenwriter James Vanderbilt add family drama, an attack on Congress, a plane crash and the possible nuking of the Middle East. What isn’t tonally jarring ends up shatteringly inept.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    White House Down never quite seems to decide what kind of movie it wants to be, although by firepower alone it qualifies as this summer’s most cartoonishly bombastic exercise in sensory overload (so far).

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    The poster for this movie should read: Hello, Suckers!

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Kevin Jagernauth

    White House Down wants to riff on the stirring action crowd-pleasers of old. But instead of playing on those motifs, White House Down becomes a slave to them, turning into the very kind of rote, brainless, poorly choreographed and leaden action movie it wants to lighten up.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • R. Kurt Osenlund

    Roland Emmerich makes love of country into a thing of unabashed hokum, which bleeds through every nook of this overstuffed jumble and leaves no character untouched.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    What played as rousingly dumb fun in "Independence Day" (1996) — all those pie-eyed nationalistic monologues, and U.S. landmarks reduced to rubble — now come off as callously insensitive, even with tongue firmly in cheek.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    [A] cartoonish, offensive, overblown, clanging, steaming piece of ... cinema.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    There may be better examples of cinematic art in 2013, but for a good time at the movies, it's hard to imagine anything beating this action extravaganza, from director Roland Emmerich, about a very Obama-like president.
