I just laughed at the scenes that President Sawyer making a funny little movements like how he chewed the gum, when he'd kicked off goon's face holding his Jordans and the other one was when he is talking to Jenna and left him hanging. LOL. I just can't imagine a president with those funny scenarios. But I want that movie. Pertaining the sacrifices and all. hope that they are real. :)
down right garbage!
just awful....starts out like your typical clichéd action movie and proceeds to get worse. Action scenes make no sense, the plot falls apart as holes open up big enough to drive an armored limo through, which happens at one point. Save your time, watch Olympus Has Fallen which is at least somewhat believable and has better action scenes
It is all right but if you pay any attention to it it becomes really bad it just doesn't make any real sense of what would happen it this really happened.
saw it last night ..it was ok..better than olympus have fallen
This movie is just plain stupid. I stopped watching halfway through.
I had to come back to write another review. I wrote the one below and was disappointed to see that the bottom of my review was cut off, how I wanted it to end was "I need to go watch a fast and furious movie to get the taste of White house down out of my mouth."
I like channing Tatum. He seems like a nice guy and I like that he does a lot of charity work. But this movie is just crap. Literally the credits are rolling across my tv. I just finished watching it. The acting, terrible. The action and special effects, terrible. In the first 5 seconds of the movie there is helicopters flying along, they couldent look any more fake, the director could have taken some pointers on effects from the original wizard of oz movie. I enjoy a good shut your brain off action movie but this movie is bad. Not so bad it's good either. The good old fashioned bad. The kind of bad reserved for Ben afleck and Jennifer lopez. I need to watch a fast and furious movie to ge
It's like All The President's Men without guns.
It's All the President's Men with guns!
I was expecting to see garbage, but I was surprised it was not a bad movie after all. It had a lot of action, but there was a lot of humour too (some obvious, some not so much) which made it quite funny/enjoyable.
We went expecting to watch a disappointing piece of superficial fluff, but surprisingly, it was very good, right to the end. Lots of suspense, humor, action, twists of plot in it. Worthwhile viewing.
The best movie of 2013.
It was an awesome movie. A lot of action. Interesting story line and even some humor. I would definately recommend this movie.
This is a great movie. I recommend everyone see it. Channing Tatum and Jamie Fox are amazing in this movie.
Warning!! This is very, very good. Action, humor, human interaction, just about everything. People rising to face extraordinary circumstances. I don't want this to be a spoiler so no details. I may see it again. Did I mention that it is very entertaining and satisfying?
Would make an AWESOME double bill with Olympus Has Fallen!
AWESOME I enjoyed the whole thing Very good
wow this movie was very good. This movie kept me guessing of what was going to happened next. It had a great story to tell. If anyone who doesn't like this movie can go screw themselves. Olympus has fallen was way too dark but this one was way better. This movie was a must see to me!!!.
This was fun, and lots of funny lines! Tatum and Foxx were hilarious together. Turn off your brain and escape for a few hours!
The thinking man's action picture.
all these reviews that give this movie a good rating are trying to trick people into suffering one of most horrible movie experience you will ever have.
wow....what a great movie!
This was a terrific movie, lots of action and great acting. Channing Tatum, Jamie Foxx and especially Joey King were awesome! A great action movie.
This movie was awesome good job for Channing Tatum. And Jamie Foxx. The special effects were awesome go see this movie
It's FROST VS. NIXON with guns!
As riveting as Independence Day and Three Days of the Condor.
one of the worst movies ever! not even worth watching on dvd.
Better than NIXON and JFK combined!
The finest political thriller since All the President's Men.
Sucks! It felt like a cheap 80`s action flick. Amateur direction, terrible acting!
It was ok. The movie did not match the hype. Olympus has fallen was better.
Became better and better once realise it is not meant to be taken too seriously
Great movie..lots of action & even funny at times. Can't believe this go 3 stars while Brad Pitt's movie got 4 stars...this is action the other is simply no good!
One of the worst movies I have seen in a very long time.
Just okay. Lots of action & countless bad guys in the White House (necessary to keep the body count up!) Excellent helicopter scenes at the end. Some truly ridiculous lines served up by Foxx & Tatum.. & the “ending scenes”… oh boy, you’ll roll your eyes at that one. “Olympus Has Fallen” is a better film (not much) but still better
This movie is severely under rated. Tops all of the newest block busters. Went to see it thinking it was knockoff "B" movie. I was so wrong. Well rounded and entertaining.
More excitement and action than World War Z.
WHD is a ridiculous movie that knows it's absurd and glories in it. The result is 1way more fun than the previous invasion-of-the-White-House movie, Olympus Has Fallen,
It was exciting and funny.
Why do I subject myself to this nonsense??? Lot's of stuff blowing up...totally dumb. Chan Tatum extremely gorgeous but cannot act worth a crap. Wait for DVD.
Absolutely best movie, I'm impressed with the lack of swearing in all the big movies this summer only twice in this movie cudos Hollywood. This was so well put together, comedy, drama, caring, patriotism, well done saw it twice already and will watch again and again just like INDEPENDENCE DAY.
Has Channing Tatum been taking acting lessons from Chuck Norris?
Absolutely hilarious! I haven't laughed this hard since Independence Day!!!
Action packed!!..awesome movie!!.. great chemistry!!.. this movie is gonna Channing all over your Tatum!!
It was action packed, from the first moment. Great show. and Channing Tatem and Jamie Foxx were great.
