I will watch any movie that my favorite actors play in. Even if they are some of the shittiest ones. (I'm looking to you, The Forger. And you too, Josh Hutcherson, for playing in it).
But in this movies case? Yeah, you guessed it. Gerard Butler.
Oh, lord. I'd swear my allegiance to a Scottish man if I every get the chance.
I love almost everything he plays in (minus that one Dracula flick) and he always brings the action. And shoulders. Christ that man has some sexy shoulders.
So Gerard's character is going through some stuff from his past that affected his job. His job of protecting the president and the first family (in this case the two-faced guy from The Dark Knight, Aaron Eckhart).
Anyways, some crazy people invade the White House and this detail unsettled me the most. The fact that a group of random people are thinking this up scares the pants off me.(yes, I know this is a movie, but still!). The most protected house in the United States is under seize.
So there is a lot of explosions and shots fired and bomb detonations and betrayal and Gerard Butlers gruff voice. And Morgan Freeman. Hells yes. Mr. Freeman, you are fantastic.
Not a bad movie. If you're looking for something else too the same effect, White House Down was okay.
