Not-really-a-movie-star Ger­ard But­ler not-really-stars as a dis­graced Se­cret Ser­vice agent trapped in the White House when it’s over­run by North Korean ter­ror­ists. Aaron Eck­hart (as the POTUS) and Mor­gan Free­man co-star. Any­one seen Die Hard? (Report, Page 8.) They say: US box of­fice was en­cour­ag­ing and the ma­jor­ity of crit­ics grudg­ingly ad­mit­ted that the film’s gung-ho ac­tion and at­ti­tude al­most over­comes the cliche´ d script. We­say: Di­rec­tor An­toine Fuqua ( Train­ing Day) knows his way around an ac­tion se­quence, a rare enough skill th­ese days to jus­tify a big-screen out­ing for fans of the genre. Run­ning time 119 min­utes. Tweed City, Aus­tralia Fair, Pa­cific Fair, Robina, Coolan­gatta, Nerang, Har­bour Town.
