Good Movie + Good Steelbook

Good action movie similar to Olympus has Fallen, the Steelbook is nice too, matte finish and art inside

White House Down

Steelbook is well made, stylish and cool, as usual from Zavvi. Good movie, but it would have been better with more blood and violence.

White House Down - Steelbook Edition (Includes UltraViolet Copy)

A great movie. My only complaint is that the steelbook doesn't even have the name of the movie on it. Would of been 5 stars if it had the name of the movie on the case

not your typical disaster movie

Same premise as Olympus has fallen - just with less explosions. Shame that this one doesnt quite live up to the Olympus has fallen highs (or depths) still a very fast moving film with characters with some depth. And the President gets a rocket launcher aimed at the White house which is worth watching just for that. Jamie Foxx rocks and helps hold the film together

Got the popcorn ready?

Yeah, it's not one of Emmerich's better movies, but it's a lot of fun and has some spectacular moments. (True, it's mostly Blowing Stuff Up™, but that's something Emmerich is really good at.) So crank up the system, get the popcorn and pizza ready, and just let it rip. (Oh, and Zavvi's steelbook is functional but nice quality.)

White House Down - Steelbook Edition

After all the bad reviews I'd read, I actually rather enjoyed this film. Take it for what it is-a no brainer popcorn flick. Yes, it's far fetched and a little too long (about a half hour too long in fact) but if it's an action movie with lots of special effects you're after, then you won't go wrong. Despite all the people that get shot/die in the film, there is hardly one drop of blood on screen. Unlike it's superior sister movie,'Olympus Has Fallen'. Which is a slightly better movie in my opinion and far more violent. The Steelbook itself is very nice in hand.

white house down

This is a great movie at a great price the only downside is I kept comparing it to In the line of fire and Olympus has fallen because they are so similar. but a great film all the same. Thank you
