'White House Down' is an action packed film, along with a great story of a father attempting to regain a connection with his young daughter. John Cale did three tours of duty while serving in the United States Military. Cale aspires to become Secret Service just before the White House is attacked.

Mr. Emmerich, who has often conjured with cosmic themes, sometimes wittily, achieves something new this time around — a level of indifference to the genre and its fans that amounts to a cosmic shrug. What does it matter if the absurdity is slovenly, the whimsy leaden, the extravagance squalid? Full Review
