Ridiculous move

Ridiculous movie - too much violence, too much language, too little believability.

I Love God, hearing the 3rd commandment hurts my heart. The movie is out

This movie uses a lot of "G D". Taking the lords name in vain. It's time we state our opinions on how we'd like to go to a movie without having GD jammed down our throats. It appears those who make these types of movies only care about one type of audience. Vin Diezel said he could make a movie without using a lot of swear words or GD & proved it, The movies are: Chronicles of Riddick & XXX. The f bomb we kinda understand sometimes, come on every 4th word. The D word is another word we understand, but every 10th word. Are the now producers really choking for words, that "nothing" will fit but a swear word. Total brilliance! NOT! Change the swear words from GD to something less offensive to all that love GOD. Then watch the lines grow at the box offices. Remember, many cultures believe in God. Once a believer hears the GD word; we leave & a notice to our church is sent. From there it goes viral all across the country. We must not forget those who just hate swearing.

WHD is violent, funny, and a great ride

WHD is a good thriller with lots of action, and laughs. There is a high body count and many white house guards are shot by intruders and civilians including a little girl, are held hostage by armed men. There is also many explosions that kill several people. Though some of this violence is played for laughs. The bad guys intentions behind their actions in this movie are more believable than some action movies. Overall this movie this movie has a high body count, but is fun and action fans will enjoy it.

Not memorable, but entertaining!

White House Down is an entertaining action- thriller movie, that's not formidable, but it accomplishes it's objective, give an action dose to moviegoers, and the whole president and White House theme gives more intensity to the movie. We have to be clear that the movie relies on violence, but in a moderate way, nothing graphic, and it's ok for teens and up.

just as good as olympus has fallen

this was an awesome movie, it was just as good as Olympus has fallen, but if you want a real adrenaline rush, then check out Olympus has fallen, it's a lot more ridiculous and intense
