Review: The white house, a building that is supposed to be the most secure place on the earth, is taken over by Korean rebels. The first 15 minutes is whatever and then … the next hour and 45 minutes is just explosions, killings and people being beaten up. I have to say I didn’t think Gerard Butler had it in him, but I am again wrong and it is a better die-hard movie than the Die Hard movie that came out this year. Not for the kids though, wait until they are at least 15.
