to break the chain of cynical "wannabe critics" (by a_ko17)
is it just me or has ALL the movies out lately for the past few years since the internet was made available to cynical people who hates every little thing receive only 3 out of 5 stars in IMDb and other "movie- rating" sites ? it seems nothing is good enough for these "wannabe critics", and just like any wannabe critic who want to feel important, would only have praises for "timeless classics" made in the early to mid 1900s, of course, no "critic" would dare bash on these "timeless classics" no matter how uninteresting they may be to certain <more>
individuals given their difference in taste and interest, it's because they're afraid to be bashed themselves by other "critics" for not following the golden rule of being a "movie critic" "thou shall only have praises for classic films, any film made after the 70s is nonsensical, dumb, loud, poorly acted, poorly produced, poorly directed and other infraction we might or might not see but will mention anyway"if the internet already existed when these "timeless classics" were shown, i bet all of my life savings that these "critics" would the first ones to insult every little detail of the movie from the entire production set to the punctuality of the person delivering the donuts to the director
From acclaimed auteur Roland Emmerich comes a dark, gritty take on Nietzschean philosophy masked under a tale of the White House under siege. Emmerich's critique of quasi-pseudo-antidisestablishmentarianism is relentless and incredibly convincing, with a hint of crypto- anarchism. While the plot is quite layered and thematically heavy, Emmerich handles it with grace. This is visionary cinema at its finest - it is highly entertaining and deconstructs the world we live in. Emmerich is not only a master of action and suspense, as seen in masterpieces "10,000 BC" and <more>
"Godzilla," but he's a keen observer of the human experience in intense situations. A good script is always important, but for a movie to truly succeed, you need actors to convincingly portray the characters. Thankfully, the ever charismatic Channing Tatum, the enigmatic Jamie Foxx, and teen sensation Maggie Gyllenhaal provide just that and more! Not a single attendee of the exclusive screening left unsatisfied. Trust me, you don't want to miss this film. Check it out when it hits a theater near you.
I teach screen writing, so I think about movie in terms of structure. But I also love good action yarns. This movie is a great one for about two thirds of its length. There is good characterization. The plotting is tight. The narrative moves easily. And the mystery of the plot against America is kept well in abeyance, keeping you interested. But then the screenwriters lose discipline. The narrative pauses, wanders, doubles back. You'll see the same fight twice as a result. It should have been in there just once. But I still rate it a 10 because overall it is a great effort. And the <more>
special effects are just fabulous. CGI magnificent in this movie. I felt I was there, totally present at the White House. Well well done. As for politics, I like movies that try to make points, and this one certainly does. I get the impression that conservatives have mounted a campaign to score it low on this site, but on Rotten Tomatoes, it has gotten a 73% positive rating. So, despite the efforts of conservatives to gang up on it, people are liking it--as they should. It is a good movie, and I'm convinced Channing Tatum has lots of fun, good, action yarns ahead of him. Fun to watch.
Very entertaining with action and comedy! (by yankeefan533)
This is one of the best movies I've ever seen! I loved every part of it with its twists in the story you never see coming, the action filled moments and the comedy. I didn't think this movie would be this good from what the trailer showed us but it surprised me a lot. Jamie Fox and Channing Tatum make a good pair for the main roles of the movie but I know there could be a better pair but they were still good. Now if you saw the movie with a similar plot called, Olympus has Fallen, and you liked it you'll like this too. I've seen a large amount of movies and this one is <more>
definitely in the top 10 best movies I've ever seen. I don't get why a lot of people thought this was stupid but they must look at movies in a different way. All in all this movie was memorable one for me.
In the deep south, we say, "Dayum, that was good!" I rate movies as to whether I squirm or get bored. I neither squirmed nor got bored. I tend to like anything Tatum or Foxx is in, and they were an excellent team that carried this movie. good cast. the special effects were outstanding, the plot was riveting, the decor and set design were superb. I thought the tour guide was the best laugh of the movie. As a aficionado of federal/regency architecture and furniture, I watched for detail and was not disappointed. I feel like I got a good tour of the White house just from watching this <more>
movie.Ignore the bad reviewers on here and go see it. I will pay to go see it again tomorrow. so there!
Cale just wants his dream job but something wrong happens at the white house where Cale has to rescue his daughter, the president and the entire United States of America (by itprin)
Let me first say that the movie was amazing and i personally loved it. If you love history, excitement, thrills and if you are a sneaker head like me then this is the perfect movie for you This movie has been receiving bad reviews such has 6/10. this movie was great and is a mix of comedy and excitement. The only reason why their could be a low review is because some of the things they say and their props are inaccurate. Besides for that the movie is amazing and Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx are great in the movie. The seem to have great chemistry in the movie. Im not saying this movie had no <more>
flaws, as i sayed before their was inaccurate quotes and the way they used their props. without spoiling anything what do you think about the windows at the white house. Wouldn't the be bullet proof? But all in all this movie was diffidently worth the price of admission and i will diffidently be buying this on iTunes. Great movie, 9/10
This is the first review I've ever written ever. I don't subscribe to movie reviews--at all. I actually enjoy movies. It seems to me that by in large reviewers just don't like movies. Not the intelligent reviewers anyway. They seem to be more concerned with how they look to their readers, pretending they know something about film. Reviewers are writers who want to be something else, filmmakers perhaps, and find it incredibly trendy and smart to disassemble and deconstruct the hard work of others; and to hate entertainment. They all seem to have this idea that they know better and <more>
I have little time for their self righteous, self important, pretentious bullshit thinly disguised as some sort of public service. Heads up: it does no one a service to be condescending or insulting. With that said I will now step off of MY self righteous soap box and say that White House Down is a damned good time time with excellent shots of DC making it look like an attractive, interesting place to be as opposed to the hot and smelly dumpster it actually is...seriously, the place smells like a dumpster , in your face action, fine performances-- Jamie Foxx is pretty cool as the leader of the free world--a bad guy who you just can't wait to watch die there are several bad guys in this movie, so I'm not counting that as a spoiler , and pretty awesome hero in John Kale.Now the movie gets a little long which is only an issue if you're a smoker like me, by the middle of the third act I was craving pretty hard, and there's some dumb lines of dialogue during one of the action sequences that didn't seem to fit the characters, but whatever.White House Down is a fun and intense action movie that I would gladly see again. 8 out of 10!
Again, it's a "story" ... it's entertainment (by maxaira)
I think that there are a host of folk out there who have nothing better to do than write ridiculous reviews. Here we have a whole host of them. Of course the whole of the scenario is far fetched and as likely to happen as finding life on mars, but so what. If they had taken time to implant more character development, and they had as much as they needed, then people would have said it was too slow and not enough action. If they had put in more story line, then they would have said it was too "talky". There's no winning with some people. I knew that it was primarily an action <more>
flick, so I looked for nothing more, and was gratified at what took place. The special effects were great, though admittedly they did make the whole secret service, military et al look a little weak, but there you have it. I believe most people will enjoy what they see and the adrenalin will keep pumping. I found the whole thing quite enjoyable.
In contrast to the other reviewers here, I thought the movie was terrific, and I DON'T particularly care for Channing Tatum. I thought that they pulled this off well, and while others think this is a rip off of Die Hard and Olympus Has Fallen, there are a lot of movies that have similar themes to others. It doesn't make it a rip-off. How many people thought Premium Rush was a "rip-off" to Kevin Bacon's "Quicksilver"? Or was there too much time elapsed for anyone to remember that one? I enjoyed this movie, it was action packed, the villains were well cast, <more>
Channing Tatum was believable in his role, as was daughter, and Jamie Foxx was probably selected for the part mostly because of Obama. I am not a fan of theaters, and prefer Redbox or On-Demand, but the Big Screen is a good venue to see this action movie. I gave it a lower mark, just because I thought some of the special effects were not well done. I have never listened to the critics. See it for yourself and form your own opinion
