Critic Reviews

Liked
You couldn’t ask for a more fun summer popcorn movie than White House Down.
— Lou Lumenick (New York Post)
Didn't Like
What played as rousingly dumb fun in "Independence Day" (1996) — all those pie-eyed nationalistic monologues, and U.S. landmarks reduced to rubble — now come off as callously insensitive, even with tongue firmly in cheek.
— Keith Uhlich (Time Out)
