As I entered the theatre, one question has haunted me. Is "White House Down" too soon after "Olympus Has Fallen?" By the end of the first reel, my answer to the question in hand is no, and by the end of the second reel, I have another question; Will this movie get any better? The answer is yes. Not only ity's better than "Olympus Has Fallen, but it's pretty exciting frtom start to the end. Channing Tatum in one of his better role as a cop who failed his job interview as a secret service agent who stuck in the middle of a terorist attack on Washington. Thanks to director Roland Emmerich, this movie really takes off and never let down on the suspense. The action and the surprises kept on coming. Who gets the MVP of this movie? is it Channing Tatum? No! Is it Maggie Gyllenhaal? No! Jamie Foxx? No! James Wood? No! Richard Jenkins? No! Joey King? YES! She's the best thing that came out of this movie. She plasyed a smart and heronic character that stood out in the movie. I don't usually talk about The Academy Award race until after Labor Day. But I would love to see King get an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress. She richfully derserves it. I don't think she'll get that nomination, but if she get just one vote, I'll be the happiest man in the world. Joey King is the real reason why I like the movie even more.
