If Such A Thing Was Possible…..

Movie day returned, with only one selection this week.  We chose to view White House Down, as the action trailers made the film seem appealing!  Plus, having Jamie Foxx and Channing Tatum in the film was not bad, either!

The movie starts with John Cale (Channing Tatum) getting to The White House to interview for the position of Secret Service Agent.  Cale has his toddler daughter with him, as he encounters Secret Service Agent Carol Finnerty (Maggie Gyllenhaal).  She is a former classmate of Cale’s, who believes him to be immature, and incapable of handling a job as demanding as that of one that protects The President of The United States!

Cale does interview for the position, yet he is denied the job. As he is exiting with his daughter, Cale notices that people are starting to run wildly within the building, then gunfire is heard!  No one notices a man dressed as a janitor walking to the center of The U.S. Capitol, as he drops a bomb, and it explodes!

Speaker of The House Eli Ralpherson (Richard Jenkins) was taken to an underground location, and Vice-President Alvin Hammond (Michael Murphy) was put aboard Air Force One.  As The White House itself was supposed to be secured, terrorists have invaded the most secured grounds on the planet.  The White House has fallen!

As the main building is filled with terrorists, Cale’s daughter, Emily (Joey King) gets away to hide.  She has a cell phone with her, and she wisely begins to video-record what she is seeing.  Yet, the terrorists learn of Emily’s presence, as they make motions to get hold of the young girl.  They then tell Cale to surrender, or they will kill Emily!

Now hyped to save his daughter, Cale makes actions to combat the terrorists.  He plans on how to get into the secured areas of The White House to rescue President Sawyer (Jamie Foxx).  Once with The President, both Cale and Sawyer plan to figure out what is happening, and how to rectify the situation in order to save the nation!

There are a few twists toward the end, with some unexpected moments!  Yet, this actually was a decent film.  Some of the of the lines were a bit cheesy, yet I suppose that was to come with the particular turf.  The film was good, for what it could give the audience!
