Summer is full of nothing but fun times at the pool, melting ice cream, and patriotic movies. What more could anyone want! This summer has brought just that. While both movies take a similar concept, it is hard not to compare. Now without giving too many spoilers away, you’ll be comparing theme side by side at your local Redbox. Both have plenty of violence, guns and explosions but one clearly has a higher death rate. And that movie is Olympus Has Fallen (OHF for short). Though as a Channing Tatum fan, of course we find him handsome to look at in White House Down (WHD for short). But I found his acting a bit flat on the big screen this time. Jamie Foxx who plays President Sawyer on the other hand was funny and entertaining to watch. I have to give it to OHF because on one does action better than my man Gerard Butler. So I can fully say in my opinion Olympus Has Fallen supremely surpasses the lesser White House Down.
