This isn't a Guilty Pleasure, just a pleasure.

Palo Alto Weekly

While fun in a harmless, artificial sort of way -- like Pop Rocks or costume jewelry -- White House Down is little more than Die Hard at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Stephen Silver

Ridiculous as it is both thematically and action-wise, the film is a ton of fun, and much better than most of what director Roland Emmerich has put out there over the years

Eric Melin

Directed by Roland Emmerich (the guy who blew up the White House once before in Independence Day), it has that old-school buddy action vibe, but it falls just short of really working.

"Dumb" doesn't do it justice

While the film is exactly as silly as Olympus Has admittedly has a lot more fun with the cheeseball, post-9/11 patriotism that underlies the lark. That's the real saving grace for a film that is essentially a carbon of a carbon of a carbon.

Tom Clift

Where Emmerich consistently distinguishes himself from obvious contemporaries like Transformers maestro Michael Bay is that, in his films, patriotism never equals prejudice.

Shadows on the Wall

This is a ludicrously contrived thriller that's also a guilty pleasure because the actors refuse to take things seriously.

Matthew Toomey
ABC Radio Brisbane

Characters behave in a manner that often doesn't make sense. It's like watching a bad horror movie where the victims act as if they want to get caught.

Observer [UK]

At least has the good grace to laugh at itself as it rolls out the dingbat-daft action-movie cliches.

The Ooh Tray

All credit to this hack: he's once again made sleeping well a real possibility, making the plausible implausible.

It is appallingly funny in a way that few parodies ever manage. But it is undeniably exciting.

Movie Talk

Emmerich has a bigger budget to play with than Olympus Has Fallen director Antoine Fuqua yet fails to get more bangs for his bucks or outdo his predecessor's guilty-pleasure thrills. With Olympus it was the effects that were cheesy; here it's the script.

Birmingham Mail

One of the most violent films I've seen from a female cinematographer. But Anna Foerster adds lots of lovely, brilliantly-lit visual touches and handles the Die Hard-style action as well as any man.

Whether or not you enjoy this film depends entirely on whether you judge it to be po-faced or parody. If you believe it's the former, you'll probably hate it. If you believe it's the latter, you'll have an absolute blast.

Roland Emmerich (Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow) can do these films in his sleep; which may be why they sometimes emerge as nightmares of crazed, florid hokum.

Tatum is very appealing, Foxx makes for a personable Obama-esque fantasy President and the strong supporting cast includes the estimable James Woods, Richard Jenkins and Maggie Gyllenhaal.

Peter Bradshaw

Real thrills - dependent on real, believable jeopardy - are not on offer: just cheerfully absurd spectacle and a little bit of humour.

An expensive blockbuster chuckle that doesn't last.
