Three sentence movie reviews: White House Down
I go into Channing Tatum movies with no expectation because sometimes he is very good and sometimes he gets all clenchy-jaw-declaiming-lines type acting.* I’m happy to report that this falls into the very good category not just for CT’s acting, but for a very well-plotted action movie. It was incredibly fun to see how the story kept the characters in the White House the entire time, plus the rest of the cast was quite fun too.**
Where watched: Living Room Theaters (which seemed odd, they are very art house/foreign/independent.)
*He’s been much better, of late, but Side Effects was a return to his bad acting of yore.
**Maggie Gyllenhaal was a complete bonus, Herc from Friday Night Lights was one of the terrorists, I love that computer guy whenever I see him and Richard Jenkins is always a welcome sight.
Nice! What a bonus, to actually enjoy the entire movie. And the have bonus awesomeness from the other characters, too!!
Not the biggest fan of Maggie Gyllenhaal. Have a dislike for Jamie Foxx that I can't explain. Will probably see this if it ever turns up on Netflix instant watch.
