White House Down
Stars: Channing Tatum, Jamie Foxx, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Jason Clarke
John Cale (Channing Tatum) has the bad fortune to have an interview at the White House for a Secret Service gig on the same day that it comes under attack. Adding to his dilemma is the fact that he brought his daughter with him, and she along with the president (Jamie Foxx), are taken hostage.
It’s been nearly 12 years since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, but is America ready for the spectacle of the White House going up in flames and the president being held hostage? This film might be a little too close to reality for comfort. –p.d. lee
