America's most famous residence has had a rough year on the screen, thanks to "White House Down" and this preceding thriller, which has the same theme of enemies invading the presidential home.
Directed by Antoine Fuqua, this version stars Gerard Butler as a disgraced ex-bodyguard who comes to the chief executive's (Aaron Eckhart) aid again when terrorists strike. The strong cast also includes Morgan Freeman, Melissa Leo, Angela Bassett, Dylan McDermott, Robert Forster, Radha Mitchell ("Red Widow") and Ashley Judd. DVD extras: eight "making-of" documentaries; deleted scenes. *** (R: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
