Channing Tatum is well-cast as the lone hero who is ever so luckily on hand when terrorists seize control of the White House
Channing Tatum is well-cast as the lone hero who is ever so luckily on hand when terrorists seize control of the White House. With his 11-year-old daughter and Jamie Foxx's president in peril, Tatum's US Capitol cop has soon stripped down to a sweaty vest and is in full-on, bad-guy thrashing mode.
This ludicrously over the top but enjoyably cheesy action thriller is ridiculous, of course, but the stars pull things off with a mix of armour-plated charm and tongue-in-cheek bravado (enjoy especially the scene where Foxx wields a rocket-propelled grenade from the passenger seat of the presidential limo as it careers across the White House lawn), while director Roland Emmerich piles on the explosive action with gung-ho zest.
