This White House Down review is above my pay grade



It’s as loud and ridiculous as you’d expect a summertime movie of this type to be.


The villains really stole the show with this one…especially the crazy hacker guy. Too bad Maggie Gyllenhaal’s presence in a movie almost always means an automatic point deduction.


Either the working title of this film was Lights Down, or the President didn’t pay his electric bill, because I could barely see anything most of the time.

Product Placement

The Nicorette gum and Air Jordans inclusions were odd, and I took a point off for excessive YouTubing inĀ The Future, so I guess I should do the same here as well.


It was better than I thought it would be. I’ll give it that.

  3. So I’m not the only person that has a problem with Maggie Gyllenhaal. I also thought she was incredibly flat, boring and annoying in this film. I just can’t stand her.

  6. […] was way more intense and serious than I was expecting, but that’s probably because I saw White House Down […]

  7. […] like Die Hard mixed with a little bit of Speed and White House Down / Olympus Has Fallen, but on a plane. What’s not to […]
