Saturday Night at the Movies #88 – White House Down

White House Down (2013) is an action movie that reminds me of Die Hard (1988), with an off-duty cop stumbling into a plot of highly-organized criminals, and then saving the day.  Although the story is unrealistic and far-fetched, so was Die Hard.  And the supporting cast is excellent, with Jamie Foxx, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Richard Jenkins, and James Woods.  The only problem is that Channing Tatum is no Bruce Willis.  The Rotten Tomato rating is about what I expected – 50% from the critics and 65% from the audience.  Because I’m not a fan of action movies, I give it only two stars out of four.
