Capitol Policeman John Cale has just been denied his dream job with the Secret Service of protecting President James Sawyer. Not wanting to let down his little girl with the news, he takes her on a tour of the White House, when the complex is overtaken by a heavily armed paramilitary group. Now, with the nation's government falling into chaos and time running out, it's up to Cale to save the president, his daughter, and the country.Written by
They shot the entire film on sound stages; none of the first unit shooting was done on location. This was done so Roland Emmerich could have complete control of the exteriors onstage. See more »
Throughout the first scenes in the movie before the action begins, Cale is shown wearing a suit and tie. However, in each scene, the tightness of the tie around his neck varies. Significantly noticeable prior to entering the interview room (loose and lowered from the neck), during the interview (tight to his neck), and the immediate scene leaving the interview room when his daughter asks if he got the job (loose).

Welcome to the White House, Mr. Tyler.
I love what you've done with the place. The, uh, bullet holes really add to the décor.

The kind of movie you'll watch when you need to kill time
I think Roland Emmerich is giving up... You can tell since 10000BC. Channing Tatum is just being Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx is the worst possible candidate for this role. Watching the Kardashians would have been a lot more productive.
IT looks as if they have taken the story line out of a "24" episode. Everything about this movie is just plain,lazy and repetitive. There's no effort from any part, neither the production nor the actors, except for Maggie Gyllenhaal's performance, who I believe was great as usual. Don't expect the cutting edge special effects of previous Emmerich's movies.
It's a good movie to watch while you are doing your house chores.
