I’m 14, and I loved “white house down”. Although it is very political.  They make the the speaker of the house (the republican) bad.  But it is a great movie for people over the age 10. It has a lot of language especially the word “Sh**”.  But its a great Thriller and keeps you wondering who is bad and who is good. It does make you afraid of planes and some cops. Haha.
