The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAY CONTENTS -

While tak­ing his daugh­ter on a tour of The White House, po­lice of­fi­cer Cale (Chan­ning Ta­tum), who’s just missed out on his dream job pro­tect­ing the Pres­i­dent (Jamie Foxx), must spring into ac­tion when the build­ing is at­tacked by para­mil­i­tary in­vaders. Di­rected by Roland Em­merich ( In­de­pen­dence Day). Also stars Mag­gie Gyl­len­haal, James Woods and Richard Jenk­ins. (Re­port, right.) They say: Never more than a sliver away from glee­ful self­par­ody, White House Down was hailed and hated in equal mea­sures for its pure pa­tri­otic kitsch. They say: Sus­pend be­lief and there’s a good chance you’ll en­joy this pre­pos­ter­ous but en­ter­tain­ing ac­tion thriller. Run­ning time 131 mins. Screens at Yatala Drive In, Nerang, Har­bour Town, Tweed City, Aus­tralia Fair, Robina, Pa­cific Fair, Coolan­gatta.
